A partner ecosystem and best-in-class solutions - come see SanDisk and Western Digital in Booth #529A!

Director, Flash Storage Platform Marketing

SanDisk® has had a longstanding partnership with Red Hat – spanning from enterprise SSDs accelerating databases on RHEL to the InfiniFlash™ System tuned for optimum performance with Red Hat Ceph. SanDisk SATA, SAS, and PCIe flash storage devices are used with Red Hat around the globe and in the open source market, particularly for database acceleration.

You may not know it, but at SanDisk we are also open source enthusiasts and have gone through an incredible transformation. Nithya Ruff’s blog from this week talks about this successful adoption of open source at SanDisk and our membership in the Linux Foundation, OpenStack Foundation, and open source communities.

We’re thrilled to showcase the latest and greatest at next week’s Summit and to network with the open source community and our partners.
