Inherent limitations of current tools and paradigms
Inherent Limitations of Current Tools and Paradigms Scientific Data

  • Most scientific data management and data processing tools are too heavy-weight

    • Hard to cope with different data formats and physical structures (variety)

    • Data transformation and data transfer are often prohibitively expensive (volume)

  • Prominent Examples

    • RDBMSs: not suited for array data

    • Array DBMSs: data ingestion

    • MapReduce: specialized file system


Mismatch between scientific data and dbms
Mismatch Between Scientific Data and DBMS Scientific Data

  • Scientific (Array) Datasets:

    • Very large but processed infrequently

    • Read/append only

    • No resources for reloading data

    • Popular formats: NetCDF and HDF5

  • Database Technologies

    • For (read-write) data – ACID guaranteed

    • Assume data reloading/reformattingfeasible


Example array data format hdf5
Example Array Data Format - HDF5 Scientific Data

    • But no data ingestion

  • DB and Array Storage as a DB: Friends or Foes?

    • When to use DB?

      • Load once, and query frequently

    • When to directly use array storage?

      • Query infrequently, so avoid loading

  • Our System

    • Focuses on a set of special array operations - Structural Aggregations
