The DBLab and SC Projects

Project Overview

The goal of this project is to create a toolkit for quickly building highly efficient database systems in a high-level language (Scala) using SC, our easily extensible DSL compiler framework.

SC is publicly available in binary form at (It will be open-sourced in the coming months, as soon as published).

Our first database system implemented as part of DBLAB, LegoBase (an analytical query engine), is  available open-source at
