Ethan Miller holds the Veritas Presidential Chair in Storage as a Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. His dissertation research on the RAMA parallel storage system provided foundational concepts for his later work on the Ceph file system. His research on security and reliability for distributed storage is widely recognized, as is his research into efficient long-term archival storage and integration of new storage technologies such as non-volatile memories and shingled disks. His broader interests include file systems, computer security, operating systems, parallel and distributed systems, information retrieval. He has worked closely with industry to help move research results into commercial use at companies such as NetApp and Veritas, and has been working with Pure Storage since its founding in 2009.
