A little while back I caught up with Rob Sobers at Varonis and had a good chat about wifi, XSS and various other bits and pieces related to security on the web today. I find chats like this are great for getting a candid sense of what’s going on in the industry; no scripting, no editing just straight talk on how we’re getting pwned online.Your browser does not support the audio element. BTW – let me apologise in advance for the audio quality, things panned out such that the only way this ended up working timing wise was while I was at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast. Yes, those are rollercoasters in the background, hopefully it’s not too distracting!

Michael Stonebraker has helped create a lot of database systems and has lots of thoughts about where the industry is headed. Oracle, SAP, NoSQL, NewSQL — they all have a place if they play their cards right, but some might have a harder time than others.
Recording Venue: Skype
Guest: Michael Stonebraker
Dr. Michael Stonebraker, one of the leading researchers and technology entrepreneurs in the database space, joins Robert for a discussion of database architecture and the emerging NewSQL family of databases. Dr. Stonebraker opens with his take on how the database market is segmented around a small number of use cases: OLTP, data warehouses, and event stream processing. He discusses the origins of the standard architecture for OLTP, which is row-based, and says it’s no longer optimal for any of the use cases that it is applied to. He proceeds to describe some research he has done, showing that row-based databases spend about 90 percent of their time acquiring and releasing locks, buffer management, and other activities that could be characterized as overhead in comparison to main task of reading and writing data. These results, which in Stonebraker’s view are intrinsic to the row-based architecture, require a new architecture to overcome. The discussion proceeds to a new database architecture, known as “NewSQL” or “NewOLTP,” which is single-threaded, lock-free, doesn’t require disk I/O in the critical path, and can scale out to a large multiple node cluster. Stonebraker criticizes the eventual consistency model that some NoSQL distributed systems employ and he defends the ACID guarantees as a superior model. The interview closes with a discussion about database education in university curricula and Stonebraker’s thoughts on the place of Hadoop in the data storage space.

Computer software and hardware have greatly advanced over the last 30 years, but database architectures haven’t changed in response. Slava Akhmechet and Michael Glukhovsky of RethinkDB are creating a whole new style of database to take advantage of new developments like fast solid state hard drives and new research on file systems.
