Description

Leader of the group Database Architectures: Stefan Manegold.

We are a top database systems research group, active in the broad area of data management systems and infrastructure for supporting data science. Our group has a strong international reputation in academia and industry for pioneering column store technology, fast compression methods, vectorized query execution, on-line query-driven indexing (cracking), adaptive caching and integration of statistical languages and analysis in database systems.

 We develop, distribute and maintain the MonetDB open-source system, and we have spawned multiple spin-off companies, including Data Distilleries, VectorWise and MonetDB Solutions. We also operate a self-built cluster, SciLens, that – unlike many other computer clusters – is bandwidth-optimized and thus better suited as a data-science infrastructure. We pride ourselves on revealing the real problems in our discipline and coming up with revolutionary solutions that are frequently ahead of their time.

Making a tedious search a breeze: parallel query execution in multi-core systems

Making a tedious search a breeze: parallel query execution in multi-core systems

When you request information from a huge database, you might want to grab a cup of coffee and sit back, because your request may take a while. How can we optimize searches for information, specifically in a multi-core processing unit? The answer may lie in parallel queries, which run simultaneously on different processors.
