I lead and conduct research on novel technologies for storage systems. Particular topics of current interest include:

  • I/O Analytics: How can we understand the work customers are actually doing on storage systems in the field? What methods will best reveal to our customers what they are actually doing with their systems? How should the design of next-generation systems be changed in response to the usage?
  • Content-aware storage for higher performance: How should storage systems manage the placement of data and the prioritization of operations so as to best attain the implicit and explicit goals of the customer?
  • Storage efficiency technologies: How should compression and data deduplication be best applied to primary data storage? How can deployment of efficiency technologies be as effective as possible, with minimal effort for the customer?
