DDN Keynote Speaker for the 2015 Creative Storage Conference

—Registration is now open—

San Jose, CA, June 3, 2015—The 2015 Creative Storage Conference (SM) (CS 2015) welcomes David Fellinger from DDN as a keynote speaker. The conference agenda is now online and conference registration is open. CS 2015 is Tuesday June 30, 2015 at the DoubleTree Hotel West Los Angeles in Culver City, CA (www.creativestorage.org).


David Fellinger, Chief Scientist of DataDirect Networks (DDN) will give a keynote talk on "Selecting and Deploying an Efficient Media Management Hardware and Software Architecture."

Following is David's talk abstract: In high performance media workflows, the biggest challenges today are data-growth related; massive growth created by higher resolutions (such as 4K and 8K), rising camera counts, higher frame rates and format proliferation, continues to pose significant challenges. The growth of high definition and large-scale multi-dimensional media sets has created the need for innovation in the area of high-speed ingestion, processing, storage, and distribution. Traditional storage solutions, file systems and software tools no longer are efficient to manage or scale to the needs of large scale, media centric environments. Modern media solutions are rapidly evolving to deliver dedicated control devices, which can accommodate scaling to the levels required to enable an uninterrupted workflow, even in distributed environments. Learn how users are gaining better control, and more benefits from their data from ingest, to edit, to active archive without having to manage several isolated storage silos or content repositories.

David Dave Fellinger brings over thirty years of experience in engineering including film systems, ASIC design and development, GaAs semiconductor manufacture, RAID and storage systems, and video processing devices. He has architected high performance storage systems for the world's fastest supercomputers. Mr. Fellinger attended Carnegie-Mellon University and holds patents in optics, motion control, video processing, and pattern recognition.
