Title: 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.

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