Tachyum CEO Addresses Effective Use of QLC Flash in Hyperscale Datacenters at Flash Memory Summit 2018


Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Co-founder and CEO of Silicon Valley startup
Tachyum Inc., is part of the Invited Talks Track at Flash Memory Summit,
presenting "Effective Use of QLC Flash in Hyperscale Datacenters" to
attendees of the event at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa
Clara, California, August 9, at 2:10 p.m.

A frequent presenter at technology trade shows around the world, Danilak
has more than 25 years of industry experience and over 100 patents
designing state-of-the-art processing systems. In his Flash Memory
Summit presentation, Danilak will discuss the changes that need to be
implemented to increase life-amplification of QLC flash in order to
significantly reduce storage costs in hyperscale datacenters.

"While QLC flash is much denser and considerably less expensive than TLC
flash, its endurance is far below what is necessary to consider its use
within a datacenter-level storage architecture ideal," said Danilak. "I
look forward to sharing with attendees at Flash Memory Summit how
changes in the way that data is written to QLC flash can increase its
life expectancy and make it the more suitable choice for the
most-demanding enterprise environments."

Tachyum has achieved unprecedented compute performance and power
efficiency for datacenter and AI applications to enable a new generation
of supercomputers with the introduction of its Prodigy Universal
Processor Chip. Prodigy is the smallest and fastest general purpose,
64-bit processor, requiring 10x less power and reducing server cost by
3x. New proprietary software has made many parts of the hardware found
in a typical processor redundant. Shorter wires, due to a smaller core,
translates into much greater speed for the processor. The ultra-low
power Prodigy processor will allow system integrators to build a 32
Exaflops AI supercomputer. This will enable users to simulate, in
real-time, human brain-sized neural networks beginning in 2020, instead
of 2028.

Flash Memory Summit is the industry's premier showcase for storage
technologies, featuring the most exciting products, and offers the
broadest coverage of a rapidly expanding market. The 2017 event drew
more than 6,000 registrants and 120 exhibitors. The conference also
includes annual updates, market research sessions, performance testing
results, an expert table session, and a VC Forum. Additional information
