Description

Leader of the group Database Architectures: Stefan Manegold.

We, the Database Architectures (DA) research group of CWI, are well known as a top data systems research group, active in the broad area of data (management) systems and infrastructure for supporting data science. Our research 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 management 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. Our team also operates 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.
