In the streams research project, we propose novel architectures, efficient processing techniques, models, and applications to support time-oriented queries over real-time and offline data streams. Our current focus in the project centers around Trill, a high-performance streaming analytics engine that is now used across Microsoft. Our currect focus areas include efficient query processing, scale-out, resiliency, streaming state management, and unstructured data support.
