RAID

Celebrating 25 Years of Using Erasure Codes to Implement RAID

Geoffrey Noer

Sr. Director of Product Marketing

Happy birthday, RAID!  Twenty-five years ago, in March 1988, Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, published the paper “A Case for Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID)” with co-authors David Patterson and Randy Katz, inventing a concept that would prove central to the storage industry for decades to come. Congratulations to all three of these storage visionaries!

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, talks about the market trends that led him to develop RAID, in this final installment of our History of RAID series.  Garth drills down into the driving factors of both hardware and software RAID; why hardware RAID led the day at first, and why software RAID dominates the landscape today.  He concludes this series by mapping out the future of data availability and redundancy while clearly asserting that the RAID concepts will be the underpinning of reliable data storage going forward.

Panasas founder and chief scientist, Dr. Garth Gibson, reminisces about his game changing work with RAID in part II of this History of RAID series. He discusses the many technology advances that RAID has fueled since he introduced it in the famous “Berkeley RAID Paper.” He explains that what he and his co-authors were trying to do in the beginning was to make computers faster by making them more parallel. He talks about redundancy and how that important notion evolved.
