Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS) Webinar (2018)
The goal of the Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS) is to push the boundaries of file, memory and storage systems by exploring and developing new technologies and techniques to improve the usability, scalability, security, reliability, and performance of storage systems. The Center for Hyperconverged Infrastructure (CHI) will be built upon the research work conducted by the IUCRC Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS).
The center established working relationships with several large IT companies, including Intel, IBM, HPE, Dell-EMC, SGI, Cray, Salesforce, Seagate, Veritas, NetApp, HGST, LSI, Samsung, Huawei, and SK Telecom. These companies identified the trend in hyperconvergence and recommended a new direction. This webinar provided a concise overview of the center’s proposed operation, funding, intellectual property, project selection, and management.
David Hung-Chang Du, proposed CHI Director, is the Qwest Chair Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. He is the Center Director of the NSF IUCRC Center of Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS). He is an IEEE Fellow and a Fellow of Minnesota Supercomputing Institute. His research areas include mass storage systems, high-speed and sensor networks, cyber security, and parallel/distributed processing.
Narasimha Reddy, proposed CHI Site Director, is a J.W. Runyon Professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University and site director of CRIS. He is also the Associate Dean for Research with the Texas A&M Engineering Program and the Assistant Director of Strategic Initiatives & Centers with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station. His research interests are in computer networks, storage systems, multimedia systems, and computer architecture.
Krishna Kant, proposed CHI Site Director, is a professor in the Computer and Information Systems (CIS) department at Temple University, an IEEE Fellow, and site director of CRIS. His recent research interests include sustainability and energy issues in data center design, synergies between computer and logistics networks, storage systems performance and robustness, cloud computing and configuration management security, resilience and performance in high performance computing, communications for disaster management, and smart grid security.
