ACM, Infosys Foundation Honor Google Developers for Transforming Internet-Scale Computing
Date:3/25/2013

els for growth, provide superior customer experience, and drive real-time decisions. Dean and Ghemawat are outstanding examples of young innovators whose accomplishments can change the world.”

The software platforms Dean and Ghemawat designed and built are used to power massive online applications by splitting the work into small pieces and spreading them across thousands of machines. These software systems employ designs that allow them to scale many computers, and to hide the complexities of managing enormous clusters of computers from programmers. This approach bolstered the advent of cloud computing, where computing power is provided as a utility to users, with all the hardware and implementation details abstracted away. As Dean described it, these abstractions make it easy for programmers to take advantage of large-scale computational resources by automatically parallelizing computations across machines and transparently handling failures.

Background

Jeff Dean is a Google Fellow in the Systems Infrastructure Group. Before joining Google, he was at Digital Equipment Corporation’s Western Research Laboratories. In 1990 and 1991, Dean worked for the World Health Organization’s Global Programme on AIDS, developing software for statistical modeling, forecasting, and analysis of the HIV pandemic. A Fellow of ACM, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2009. A summa cum laude graduate of the University of Minnesota with a M.S. degree in Computer Science, he received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Washington.

Sanjay Ghemawat is a Google Fellow in the Systems Infrastructure Group. A former researcher at Digital Equipment Corporation’s System Research Center, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2009. He earned a B.S. degree from Cornell University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
