Dbmac: a parallel relational database machine.

ABSTRACT
The paper presents the relational database machine DBMAC, based on a multiprocessor architecture and conceived to operate as a back-end to a main frame or as a node in a network. The more significant issues of the system are discussed. First the physical organization of data, that implements the relational model using a partitioned structure to enhance the parallel processing of the database. Second the logical architecture that presents a high degree of modularity and flexibility of configuration for the distributed software system over the multiprocessor architecture. Third the physical architecture base essentially on standard off-the-shelf hardware, highly modular and configurable, that allows to build a cost effective version of DBMAC for any given application. Some special hardware devices are also discussed, that can be (optionally) added to the system to improve the performance of the low level database processing.
