The world faces exponential data growth. As a result, modern IT needs a new pillar of support: data movement at scale and speed, in addition to the familiar three: storage, computing, and networking. In this talk from Samsung Forum, Chin Fang begins by quantifying the data growth and where we are. He proceeds to cover topics such as the categories of data movement solutions, a water transport analogy, sample distributed data-intensive industries, a Zettar’s “job requirement” of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) caliber, and data path patterns, including those of large data-intensive enterprises, autonomous vehicles, 5G, IoT, and Edge Computing in general.

About the Speaker

Chin Fang holds a master’s and a doctoral engineering degree from Stanford University. He is the founder & CEO of Zettar Inc. (Zettar). The company’s mission is to create a hyperscale data distribution software application that can comfortably tackle the exponential data growth of modern distributed data-intensive enterprises and large science projects such as the Linac Coherent Light Source II (LCLS-II). Recently in March, Zettar won the Supercomputing Asia 2019 Data Mover Challenge, a grueling two-month long international competition at the highest level. Dr. Fang led the Zettar team to beat out six other elite national teams from the U.S. and Japan by a wide margin. Zettar is fully supported by its revenue and has been awarded highly competitive grants by two U.S. federal agencies, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.
