From Google to Facebook to the laboratory, humanity is collecting data faster than conventional storage system (i.e., disks) can store it and far, far faster than those systems can analyze it. The Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory (NVSL) studies the solid-state, non-volatile memories that can provide the performance we need to convert that data into insights and enable the applications that will reshape the world, enrich our lives, and extend our understanding of everything from social networks to the origins of life.

The Center for Magnetic Recording Research (CMRR) was founded in 1983 by a consortium of U.S. companies in the magnetic recording industry. The Center's mission is to advance the state-of-the-art in magnetic, optical, and solid-state storage technologies, and to produce highly trained graduate students and postdoctoral professionals. CMRR also serves as a catalyst for joint investigations amongst its industrial sponsors, government agencies, and the university.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense". We are the funding source for approximately 20 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted by America's colleges and universities. In many fields such as mathematics, computer science and the social sciences, NSF is the major source of federal backing. Careers

Fusion-io is a pioneer of a new storage memory platform that significantly improves the processing capabilities within a data center by moving process-critical, or active data closer to the CPU where it is processed. Called shared data decentralization, this significantly reduces latency while increasing data center efficiency. Fusion's integrated hardware and software solutions leverage non-volatile memory for enterprise-grade performance, reliability, availability and manageability. Careers
