An Education in Storage
Carnegie Mellon University has quietly built an enormous empire of storage R&D -- including a new center with a $22 million, five-year budget to investigate advanced storage media, and a lab sponsored by Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) for storage software research, which is slated to open early next year.
What's CMU's draw? For one thing, it's got a long history of sponsored research for computer science technology. This has helped the university attract distinguished faculty, which in turn has helped fuel research grants and more industry sponsorship.
In the case of storage, this pattern has resulted in the formation of three distinct research facilities:
"Seagate will be the leading industry participant, and two thirds of the research will probably take place at CMU," says a DSSC spokesman. Part of the reason, he notes, is that CMU also houses other key research projects that may help the cause.
And CMU's roster of storage-related research doesn't end here. There are a slew of other research labs and confabs squirreled away throughout the campus, such as the Center for Highly Integrated Information Processing and Storage Systems (CHIPS)
