Less than two months after being honored as an HP Fellow, storage systems expert John Wilkes has received the additional distinction of Fellow from the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

Wilkes, known for his contributions to the understanding of computer storage systems, was among those the ACM honored for "outstanding technical and professional achievements in information technology." He will be inducted by the association in June.

In addition to making fundamental contributions to the understanding of computer storage systems, particularly in the area of storage management technology, Wilkes has been an active member of the ACM for several years. He is currently Associate Editor for ACM Transactions on Computer Systems.

Wilkes joins two other members of the HP Labs community who have achieved this prestigious honor: HP Fellow Jeffrey Mogul and former Director of HP Labs, Joel Birnbaum.

Wilkes, who joined HP Labs in 1982, is working in the area of automating the design and management of large-scale storage systems.

"This distinction follows closely upon my announcement in September of John's promotion to HP Fellow," said Dick Lampman, director of HP Labs and senior vice president for research, HP. "It underscores a key attribute of an HP Fellow, the ability to impact and influence the scientific community."

Recently, Wilkes and his team developed a suite of tools that includes the first automatic storage-system design and deployment loop; an automatic network-topology design tool; online data migration tools; system performance analysis and monitoring tools; and a complete "storage system design lifecycle."
