Join us in Santa Clara, CA, February 22–25, for the 14th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies. FAST ’16 brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems.

Technical Sessions

The 3-day technical sessions program includes a keynote address by Eric Brewer, VP Infrastructure at Google, on “Spinning Disks and Their Cloudy Future,” and 27 refereed paper presentations on a variety of topics, such as:

  • Flash and NVM
  • Reliability
  • Key-Value Stores
  • Cloud and Datacenter Storage
  • Deduplication

The program also features the SNIA Industry Track on Wednesday, February 24, included in registration.


FAST ’16 also offers in-depth training. The four half-day sessions will focus on HPC storage, large-scale storage systems, on-premise file and object storage access protocols, and erasure encoding. Register soon to guarantee your first choice—space is limited.
