MonetDB: Scale Up Before You Scale Out

MonetDB is the pioneering open-source main-memory oriented column store developed in a research setting and spinning out into the enterprise market to make a (performance) difference. MonetDB innovates at all layers of a DBMS, e.g. a storage model based on vertical fragmentation, a modern CPU-tuned query execution architecture, automatic and self-tuning indexes, run-time query optimization, and modular software architecture. In this talk I will review the decades of development with a focus on its off-beat adaptive vectorized query execution engine.

Martin is a 'retired' research fellow of CWI and runs the company MonetDB Solutions, which develops, disseminates, and provide commerical support for the pioneering column store MonetDB. He continously works on pushing the technology envelop in database research and technology.

This talk is part of the Vaccination Database Tech Talk Seminar Series.
