Gray Systems Lab

Learn how we power Azure Data

Under the leadership of Raghu Ramakrishnan as Chief Technical Officer (CTO) for Azure Data, Gray Systems Lab (GSL) designs, develops, and evaluates novel database system technologies, with a focus on transitioning the best ideas into Azure Data product lines.

The GSL team spends a portion of its time working with graduates and faculty from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) who are affiliated with the lab, to work on research projects that are more speculative in nature, and engages deeply with the OSS community in Silicon Valley to drive innovation and create a collective mindshare.
