36th International Conference
on Massive Storage Systems
and Technology (MSST 2020)
May 4 — 8, 2020

Sponsored by Santa Clara University,
School of Engineering


Since the conference was founded, in 1974, by the leading national laboratories, MSST has been a venue for massive-scale storage system designers and implementers, storage architects, researchers, and vendors to share best practices and discuss building and securing the world's largest storage systems for high-performance computing, web-scale systems, and enterprises.




Hosted at

Santa Clara University
Santa Clara, CA


2020 Conference


MSST 2020, as is our tradition, will focus on distributed storage system technologies, including persistent memory, new memory technologies, long-term data retention (tape, optical disks...), solid state storage (flash, MRAM, RRAM...), software-defined storage, OS- and file-system technologies, cloud storage, big data, and data centers (private and public). The conference focused on current challenges and future trends in storage technologies.

MSST 2020 will include a day of tutorials, two days of invited papers, and two days of peer-reviewed research papers. The conference will be held, once again, on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
