Rethinking Database System Architecture: Towards a Self-Tuning RISC-Style Database System
Database technology is one of the cornerstones for the new millennium's IT landscape. However, database systems as a unit of code packaging and deployment are at a crossroad: commercial systems have been adding features for a long time and have now reached complexity that makes them a difficult choice, in terms of their "gain/pain ratio", as a central platform for value-added information services such as ERP or e-commerce. It is critical that database systems be easy to manage, predictable in their performance characteristics, and ultimately self-tuning. For this elusive goal, RISC-style simplification of server functionality and interfaces is absolutely crucial. We suggest a radical architectural departure in which database technology is packaged into much smaller RISC-style data managers with lean, specialized APIs, and with built-in self-assessment and auto-tuning capabilities
