Garth Gibson's History of RAID, Part III -- "Long Live RAID"
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 rules 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.
