CAMPBELL, Calif., November 22, 2017 – Dr. Radoslav “Rado” Danilak, CEO of Silicon Valley startup Tachyum Inc., is among the invited speakers at conference “Danube Valley: From Manufacturers to Innovators,” organized by GLOBSEC, InfraPartners Management LLP, and The Slovak Alliance for Innovation Economy. Dr. Danilak will present on a panel and Q&A about the future of energy and mobility. Danilak and participants have the honor of being introduced by H. E. Andrej Kiska, President of the Slovak Republic. The event will be held November 30 in Bratislava in the Slovak Republic’s Danube Valley, considered Central Europe’s Silicon Valley.
GLOBSEC, an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organization and think tank, advises and publishes on global security policy, conducts research, and unites experts in foreign policy, cybersecurity, defense, energy, and other globally critical fields. Its Bratislava Forum is one of the world’s top conferences on global security in the world, and other events and forums are attracting elite decision-makers in politics, technology, and academia.
Danilak and other experts will discuss how a growing world population, climate change, and finite energy resources are affecting worldwide industries and driving greater innovation for complex and globally applicable solutions that combine energy production, efficiency, distribution, transportation, and storage.
“As a U.S. citizen born in Slovakia, it’s an extraordinary privilege to share the stage with President Kiska, and to address him on how to overcome the challenge of powering an exponentially growing data center industry,” said Danilak. “This is the single most critical challenge facing global data centers, and as 80 percent of the world’s energy still comes from fossil fuels, rising energy costs and increased pollution are foregone conclusions if we do not take action.”
Danilak is well known as an innovator in bringing low-cost flash to consumer and enterprise markets on the strength of his landmark flash memory controller chip developed at SandForce and his game changing ultra-dense, all-flash arrays at Skyera. Now, Danilak and a group of industry veterans are designing a high-performance, ultra-low power Cloud Chip aimed directly at the hyperscale data center market and cloud computing centers with his latest venture, Tachyum.
