Parthasarathy (Partha) Ranganathan received the 2013 Maurice Wilkes Award for contributions to the design of power-efficient microblade servers and pioneering work in disaggregated system designs. Partha has been a leading advocate for new system designs to improve the energy efficiency and total cost of ownership (TCO) in large-scale datacenters. The technology inflection point of the last decade, which caused power efficiency to become the dominant design constraint in computing systems, the massive growth of cloud datacenter computing, and the related power consumption and carbon footprint, all underscore the importance of his work, which has had tremendous impact in both academia and industry.
