Garth Gibson is an associate professor of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Panasas Inc. Garth received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley in 1991. While at Berkeley he did the groundwork research and co-wrote the seminal paper on RAID, then Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks, for which he received the 1999 IEEE Reynold B. Johnson Information Storage Award for outstanding contributions in the field of information storage. Joining CMU's faculty in 1991, Garth founded CMU's Parallel Data Laboratory and co- led the Network-Attached Storage Device (NASD) research project that became the basis of the recently standardized T10 (SCSI) Object-based Storage Devices (OSD) command set for SCSI. At Panasas Garth led the development of the ActiveScale Storage Cluster in use in about 50 HPC sites to provide multi GB/sec bandwidth in a simply scaled, simply managed, blade server platform. Garth sits on a variety of academic and industrial service committees including the Technical Council of the Storage Networking Industry Association and the program and steering committee of the USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST).
