Microsoft upgrades database research lab at University of Wisconsin-Madison

Three times the space, new equipment, and room for 30 researchers and staff

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft has unveiled a $3.5m upgrade to its database research lab Jim Gray Systems Lab, near the campus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The new lab will move to new quarters, reopening just off campus on West Main Street with three times the space, new equipment, and room for 30 researchers and staff.

Microsoft’s Business Platform Division also sees the lab as pivotal to company priorities such as cloud computing.

Microsoft Business Platform Division senior vice president Ted Kummert said since 2008, the lab’s work has generated impactful contributions to Microsoft’s SQL Server business.

"This new expansion enhances the strong research and technical collaboration that we have with the University of Wisconsin," Kummert said.
