The year of epoch of changes for the database technology.

Sergey D. Kuznetsov.


In 2007, Michael Stonebraker and his colleagues published several papers that strongly stated a necessity of radical rethink of DBMSs’ architectures. These suggestions were supported by experiments with some new architectures targeted to applications of data streams, data analysis, online transaction processing, etc. In 2008, the Clermont Report on research directions in the field of database technology acknowledged these trends. The most interesting publication of 2009 briefly discussed in this paper show that researchers and developers of database management facilities seriously perceived the idea of rethinking of DBMSs’ architectures.
