Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for cloud enabled data centers, today announced that its CEO, Ron Bianchini, has won the Carnegie Science Award for Information Technology. The award recognizes Bianchini, and the incredible contribution that the Avere solution provided the California Academy of the Sciences.
Presented by Pittsburgh Business Times, the Information Technology Award recognizes innovation in the development and commercialization of an information technology-based solution resulting in significant business impact.
“We are extremely honored to win the Carnegie Science Award for Innovation. Customers like the California Academy of Sciences use our solution to push the IT innovation envelope to deliver exciting entertainment and educational programs across the globe,” said Bianchini. “I am lucky to work with an amazing group of people, and I truly believe that our customers are redefining the technology industry.”
California Academy of Sciences selected Avere to help power visual effects for the world’s largest all-digital planetarium. Avere FXT Series Edge Filers increased rendering performance ten times over for their computer-generated imagery by bringing the benefits of performance tiering and scale-out clustering to the NAS environment.
Avere Systems and its innovative technology are a direct result of the vision and leadership of Ron Bianchini. Avere is the third Pittsburgh-based technology company founded by Bianchini since the native New-Yorker adopted the city as his home in 1983 as a CMU graduate student.
“Ron has been building and leading successful companies that deliver breakthrough technologies for many years,” said Ron Baillie, Co-Director at the Carnegie Science Center. “At Pittsburgh’s Avere Systems Ron has built a world class team that is having global impact developing high performance solutions for cloud computing and other major data storage needs. Ron has always been a great collaborator, and Avere has forged strategic partnerships with some of the world’s leaders in related industries to create one of Pittsburgh’s great recent success stories.”
Awardees will be honored during a formal celebration at Carnegie Music Hall on Friday, May 9th, in Oakland, Pennsylvania. In addition to highlighting the accomplishments of the region’s top scientists, innovators, educators, and STEM professionals, the event raises critical funds for Carnegie Science Center’s STEM programs that identify, nurture, and encourage current and future leaders in science and technology.
