Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "June2016" by JigneshPatel

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "June2016" page has been changed by JigneshPatel:

- Quickstep is a high-performance database engine.
+ Modern servers pack enough storage and computing power that just a decade ago was spread
across a modest-sized cluster. Given that we are on a technological path to continue to increase
the storage and compute densities of individual server nodes, we must complement methods that
focus on '''scaling-out''' by also developing methods to '''scale-in''' to fully exploit the
hardware capabilities that is packed in each server node. The initial phase of the Quickstep
project focuses on this scaling-in aspect. Quickstep uses novel methods for organizing data
(including columnar and hybrid storage organization), template metaprogramming for vectorized
query execution, and a query execution paradigm that separate control-flow from data-flow.
Collectively, these methods achieve high performance on contemporary servers with multi-socket,
multi-core processors and large main memory configurations. To keep the project focused, the
project’s initial target is interactive in-memory data warehousing workloads in single-node
settings. In the near future we plan to expand from this initial single-node focus to a distributed
setting. Early results indicate that Quickstep is over an order-of-magnitude faster than existing
platforms including Spark 2.0 and PostgreSQL 9.6 Beta1 (that now has parallel query processing).
Quickstep has been incubating since 2016-03-29.
