Welcome, Iím Charles Weddle and this is my website. Iím currently working for Model N,
the leader in revenue management, as a technical consultant. I recently finished my masters
in computer science. As a graduate student I researched energy efficient mass storage. This
research was eventually published in ACMís Transactions on Storage. Before all of this, I
worked as a systems analyst for Key Bank and American Greetings. I graduated with my bachelors
in applied science from Miami University. I currently reside in Indianapolis, Indiana.
This website serves several purposes. First, it is a central repository for information on my work.
This would include links to papers, project results, etc. Second, this website is a way for me to
communicate information about myself to those interested. Lastly, I enjoy keeping a website about
myself and updating it with new content. Speaking of which, check out my weblog, it's really a scan
log, under the "misc" section. Take a look around and if you have any questions, please feel free to
send me an email. My email address can be found on my contact information page within this website.
Our research was accepted to the 5th USENIX conference on File and Storage Technologies
held in February 2007 in San Jose. The Gear-Shifting Power-Aware RAID had its day in
the sun! Check out the links below to the FAST '07 conference website and technical
This research was also published in ACM's Transactions on Storage, Volume 3, Issue 3, Article 13.

Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonor'd, and unsung.
- Sir Walter Scott,
The Lay of the Last Minstrel, CANTO VI
Sound, sound the clarion, fill the fife!
To all the sensual world proclaim,
One crowded hour of glorious life
Is worth an age without a name.
-Sir Walter Scott,
Old Mortality. Chap. xxxiv.
