SPRINT - Adaptive Data Management for Main-memory Database Clusters
Demand for high performance and high availability combined with plummeting hardware prices has led to the widespread emergence of large computing clusters. Such environments offer great potential for highly efficient and reliable data management systems. But realizing this vision requires revisiting several fundamental assumptions about current data management systems. This is the goal of Sprint, a project conducted at the Faculty of Informatics, University of Lugano, and funded by the Hasler Foundation and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
