EtherDrive Storage Blades and the History of Networks and Storage

Brantley Coile

This talk covers some of the history of disks and networking and how
they came together.  It also shows how the EtherDrive storage blades
are the next step in the evolution of storage.  Starting with the work
at IBM in the 50's, the development of disk storage technology has
advanced non-stop.  The advent of Ethernet networking in the 1970's
ushered in a new era of storage: keeping disk on one network node and
doing the computation on another.  This talk will show how IBM
channels, fibre channel, SCSI, SMD, ST506 and ATA all fit into
history, and how Ethernet continues to affect storage, first with NFS,
and iSCSI and now AoE.

Brantley Coile is the CTO of Coraid Inc and along with Sam Hopkins
developed the AoE protocol.  Brantley has been doing Unix stuff for
over 20 years, first with Seventh Edition Unix.  Brantley did
pioneering work in embedding Unix in the 1980s, and was the first to
develop a disk caddy for SCSI disk in 1986.  Brantley is also known
for the invention of stateful packet inspection and tcp based load
sharing network applicance.  His products include the Cisco PIX and
the Cisco LocalDirector.

Coraid is a new startup founded to provide the most affordable and
flexible storage possible to the Open Source community.  Coraid's
products includes the EtherDrive storage blade, and the RAIDblade RAID
front end.
