First of New NSF Big Data Grants Go to Tokutek Founders

Posted On October 11, 2012 | By Tokutek | 1 comments

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!
