About the Event
What can I say? Yes, I helped build a database management system (DBMS) for the "one percent." This previous system (H-Store) is able to get up to 40x higher throughput over traditional, disk-oriented DBMSs for on-line transaction processing workloads. But getting this great performance requires a significant upfront deployment cost (e.g., application rewriting, pre-partitioning). It is also unable to perform non-trivial analysis operations without the use of a separate data warehouse, which further increases costs and overhead. This makes a DBMS like ours accessible to only those organizations with ample resources.
