Carnegie Mellon's Greg Ganger and Noah Smith were among 60 recipients worldwide to receive awards as part of HP's 2009 Innovation Research Program, which is designed to create opportunities for colleges, universities and research institutes around the world to conduct breakthrough collaborative research with HP.

Ganger, professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of the Parallel Data Lab at Carnegie Mellon, will collaborate with HP Labs on a research initiative focused on data storage infrastructure issues. Ganger, author of the winning proposal "Toward Scalable Self-Storage," will lead the collaboration.

"As enterprise storage demands continue to grow and diversify, we need scalable storage that supports the new industry demands with lower administrative costs," said Ganger, who received an HP Innovation Research Award in 2008 as well. Continue to the Carnegie Mellon press release.
