The Center for Research in Intelligent
Storage (CRIS) is a partnership between universities and
industry, featuring high-quality, industrially relevant
fundamental research, strong industrial support of collaboration
in research and education, and direct transfer of university
developed ideas, research results, and technology to U.S. industry
to improve its competitive posture in world markets. Through
innovative education of talented graduate and undergraduate
students, CRIS is providing the next generation of scientists and
engineers with a broad, industrially oriented perspective on
engineering research and practice. CRIS currently consists of three universities:
University of Minnesota, Temple University and Texas A&M
CRIS at Temple University
CRIS at Texas A&M
The goal of the Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS) is to push the boundaries of file,
memory and storage systems by exploring and developing new technologies and techniques to improve
the usability, scalability, security, reliability, and performance of storage systems.
The Center is established in the University of Minnesota
a university with strong ties to the
storage system industry: Minneapolis has long
been a center of the storage industry in the United States. Research
projects in the Center are supported by industrial members, and the
Center encourages frequent participation by industry employees in
the projects: participation in weekly meetings via phone call, email
discussions, and face-to-face meetings. The Center encourages
students to engage member companies via summer internships,
facilitating technology transfer and building strong ties that can
result in full-time employment after graduation.
The Center is primarily supported by its
industrial membership and by funding
from the National Science Foundation.
The Center is part of the
Industry & University
Cooperative Research Program (I/UCRC) at NSF.
