We created the earliest industrial RAID prototype.
| he goal of the storage systems and server department is to explore new technologies in storage systems, file systems and server software, and to facilitate the rapid exploitation by IBM of these technologies in products and services.
Our department has developed technologies and contributed to products that have become major forces in the storage industry.
We have exciting, cutting-edge projects in clustered file systems, Internet Storage, video servers, distributed (Java-based) storage management, storage servers for NT clusters, RAID systems, file systems for scalable Web servers, and so on. We also have a project devoted to improving the efficiency of IBM manufacturing operations through analysis of data using modern statistical and data mining approaches.
In general, our projects involve the building of innovative storage
systems. Our department has developed technologies and contributed
to products that have become major forces in the storage industry
such as the IBM RAMAC and IBM 9337 RAID subsystems and the Adstar
Distributed Storage Manager (ADSM), now the Tivoli Storage Manager
(TSM). We are also leading IBM's charge into new areas such as Internet
Video serving and video-on-demand through technology used in two
of IBM's recently announced products: the IBM VideoCharger, for
delivery of audio and video to Internet and Intranet Clients and
the IBM Media Streamer, which supports video playback and recording
via ATM or analog (NTSC), and is aimed at professional applications
such as TV studios, cable TV head-ends, and video-on-demand systems.
