ECE Professor Gregory Ganger was one of more than 60 recipients worldwide to receive the 2010 HP Innovation Award, which is designed to encourage open collaboration with HP labs resulting in mutually beneficial, high-impact research. Ganger, director of the Parallel Data Lab (PDL), will collaborate with HP labs on a research initiative focused on cloud computing issues. This is Ganger's second HP Innovation Award. He received his first in 2008 for research involving scalable and self-managing data storage systems.
"This is a wonderful award for Greg and his team because it recognizes the innovative, collaborative research excellence so endemic to the Parallel Data Lab," said Mark S. Kamlet, executive vice president and provost at Carnegie Mellon. "We applaud their dedication and energy in streamlining ubiquitous cloud computing use."
