Gibson (pictured), Katz, and Patterson co-authored the pioneering 1998 research paper, ’A Case for Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID),’ while at the University of California-Berkeley, setting the stage for the development of RAID storage as we know it. The development of some of the storage arrays currently in use such as EMC's Clariion can be traced to the publication of that paper.
