From Moore to Metcalf - The Network as the Next Database Platform

Database systems architecture has traditionally been driven by Moore's Law and Shugart's Law, which dictate the continued exponential improvement of both processing and storage. In an increasingly interconnected world, however, Metcalf's Law is what will drive the need for database systems innovation going forward. Metcalf's law states that the value of a network grows with the square of the number of participants, meaning that networked applications will become increasingly ubiquitous. Stream query processing is one emerging approach that enables database technology to be better integrated into the fabric of network-intensive environments. For many applications, this technology can provide orders of magnitude performance improvement over traditional database systems, while retaining the benefits of SQL-based application development. Increasingly stream processing has been moving from the research lab into the real world. In this talk, I'll survey the state of the art in stream query processing and related technologies, discuss some of the implications for database system architectures, and provide my views on the future role of this technology from both a research and a commercial perspective.

Michael Franklin is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley and is a Co-Founder and CTO of Amalgamated Insight, Inc., a technology start up in Foster City, CA. At Berkeley his research focuses on the architecture and performance of distributed data management and information systems. His recent projects cover the areas of wireless sensor networks, XML message brokers, data stream processing, scientific grid computing, and data management for the digital home. He worked several years as a database systems developer prior to attending graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he received his Ph.D. in 1993. He was program committee chair of the 2005 ICDE conference and 2002 ACM SIGMOD conference, and has served on the editorial boards of the ACM Transactions on Database Systems, ACM Computing Surveys, and the VLDB Journal. He is a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery, a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and the ACM SIGMOD "Test of Time" award.
