    The doctoral education process has typically brought about many misconceptions regarding the practicality of the Ph.D. degree. The Ph.D., by definition, requires mastery of a specific subject and expansion of the existing body of knowledge. Many professionals believe this small scope of research and contribution is far less practical for the upcoming engineer as compared to four equivalent years i... View full abstract»

    Network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) are the enterprise storage architectures that are commonly deployed in data centers. However, as storage demands escalate over time, none of these storage networks support aggressive concurrency and per server throughput requirements for the applications on highly scalable computing clusters. In recent times, efforts have been set to in... View full abstract»
