BARC started in 1995 with Jim Gray and Gordon Bell. We are part of Microsoft Research with a focus on Scaleable Servers (Gray, Barrera, Barclay, Slutz, VanIngen) and Telepresence (Bell, Gemmell).
In 1996 we grew to a staff of 6 and moved to our current location in downtown San Francisco (at the east end of Silicon Gulch).
We have close ties to the SQL, MTS, NT, PowerPoint, and NetMeeting groups. We also collaborate with UC Berkeley, Cornell, and Wisconsin on Scaleable computing, with UC Berkeley and U. Virginia on Telepresence.
Each summer we host two interns.

BARC is located at 301 Howard St, #830, San Francisco CA.94105
Humor: our next door neighbor is the Justice Department (Environmental Division). So the sign in the lobby reads:
