Garth Gibson is a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, is the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Panasas Inc., a leading provider of parallel storage systems, is the co-director of the Institute for Reliable High Performance Information Technology sponsored by Los Alamos National Laboratory, and is the Principal Investigator of the US Department of Energy's Petascale Data Storage Institute in the Scientific Discovery Through Advanced Computing program ( Gibson's PhD research at the University of California, Berkeley, developed the Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) taxonomy. His Network-Attached Storage Device research at Carnegie Mellon University became the basis of the newly standardized T10 Object-based Storage Devices (OSD) command set for SCSI storage. And through his leadership with Panasas' scalable storage systems, the primary storage for the world's first Petaflop computer (LANL's Roadrunner), Gibson co-instigated the IETF's nearly complete open standard for parallel Network File Systems (NFSv4.1).    (3XVV)
