The core technology behind Tokutek is based on the academic research by our founders: Michael Bender, Bradley Kuszmaul and Martin Farach-Colton. They are all still in academia, in addition to their work at Tokutek.
Back in March, the White House kicked off a new Initiative for Big Data. Last week, the National Science Foundation announced the first interagency grants for this. Eight awards were given, and our own Michael Bender and Martin Farach-Colton, along with Robert Johnson of Stony Brook University, received one of them.
Through their academic work, they hope to extend our understanding of write optimization as a tool for processing big data.
Congratulations Martin and Michael!
