Nisha Talagala

Fellow/Lead Architect, SanDisk/Fusion-io

Nisha Talagala works at SanDisk/Fusion-io, developing new and exciting technologies in non volatile memory and its applications. Her background is in software development for distributed systems, focusing on storage, I/O, file systems, and non-volatile memory. Before Fusion-io, she was the technology lead for server flash at Intel - heading up server platform non volatile memory technology development and partnerships. Before that, she was Chief Technology Officer at Gear6, where they built clustered computing caches for high performance I/O environments. Nisha got her PhD at UC Berkeley doing research on clusters and distributed storage. She hold over 30 patents in distributed systems, networking, storage, performance and non-volatile memory


As a non volatile memory, flash is revolutionizing data center architectures, improving application performance by bridging the gap between DRAM and disk. Future non volatile memories promise performance even closer to DRAM. While flash adoption first established a foothold as a disk replacement, data center architectures are now evolving to take advantage of flash as a new memory tier in both... [read more]
MySQL is used by many organizations for mission-critical applications where downtime is very costly. MySQL in the Cloud is also growing in relevance and usage. During this panel discussion we’ll discuss the challenges of operating MySQL at scale in this changing technology landscape. Topics such as high availability clusters, multi-datacenter replication, and data storage will be discussed in... [read more]
