"My Summer at NetApp" by guest speaker Christopher Corsi, Clemson University.
Abstract: Christopher Corsi spent three months working as an intern for NetApp this past summer. NetApp is head-quartered in Sunnyvale, CA, near many other big players in the tech field such as Google, Cisco, Juniper Networks, and Silicon Graphics. They are a Fortune500 company specializing in storage solutions, and are well known for ONTAP and WAFL technology. To take advantage of increasingly pervasive flash storage they have launched Project Mars, the area where Christopher worked. It uses a log-structured filesystem layout along with classic NetApp technologies such as RAID-DP to deliver a high-performance, cost-effective, and reliable Tier-0 storage system.
