Hash: SHA1

Massive but Agile: next-gen databases prepare for battle 

,----[ Quote ]
| Ingres for one has just announced a project with VectorWise, a spin off from 
| the database research team at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica of Amsterdam, a 
| research institute in mathematics and computer science. With backing from 
| Intel, Ingres and VectorWise are attempting to build a database engine that 
| derives an increased quotient of its power from modern hardware processor and 
| storage performance.     


Ingres aims to exploit modern CPUs

,----[ Quote ]
| Ingres has announced it is working with VectorWise to improve database 
| performance through fully exploiting the capabilities of modern CPUs. They 
| are planning to create Ingres/VectorWise, a new product which incorporates 
| the new techniques, for release in mid-2010. VectorWise is a commercial spin 
| off of the, Ingres funded, Amsterdam based CWI (Centrum Wiskunde & 
| Informatica) database research team. Intel are supporting the project with 
| engineering expertise and hardware.      



Ingres "code sprint" yields new features

,----[ Quote ]
| Among the new features created at the event were a compressed backup option
| to save space when archiving databases, an enforced logging system for
| databases and the ability to suspend logging when copying a database, a
| command line history for the Ingres SQL utility and improved Soundex routines
| for better matching. Emma McGratten of Ingres, who organised the sprint
| said "It's a testament to the open source community when we can get together
| and make improvements on features and programs that are being used every day,
| by the people who depend on them".
