NSF awards $2 Million to renew support of AsterixDB


Vassilis Tsotras and Ahmed Eldawy, professors of computer science and engineering will receive $860,000 as a part of a $2 Million grant from NSF to enrich AsterixDB in collaboration with UCI. AsterixDB is an Apache open source project developed by UCR and UCI over the past 10 years.
