Project RAPID

Project RAPID is a hardware-software co-design project targeting large-scale data management and analysis. RAPID aims to improve the energy efficiency of database-processing systems by an order of magnitude over today's solutions. To achieve these savings, RAPID leverages a heterogenous hardware architecture combined with architecture-conscious software.

RAPID is a large project started in the Spring of 2011 and is looking for engineers with backgrounds in databases, system software, and computer architecture. Please go to if you are interested in this effort.
