Databases on Modern Hardware Management

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Databases-Modern-Hardware-Managemen...
In this book, we shed light on the challenges present while running DBMS on modern hardware. We divide the material into two dimensions of scalability: implicit/vertical and explicit/horizontal.Data management systems enable various influential applications from high-performance online services to big data analytics.As a result, Databases on Modern Hardware Management have been one of the main drivers for innovations in the database and computer architecture communities for several decades. Recent hardware trends require software to take advantage of the abundant parallelism existing in modern and future hardware. The traditional design of the data management systems, however, faces inherent scalability problems due to its tightly coupled components. In addition, it cannot exploit the full capability of the aggressive micro-architectural features of modern processors. As a result, today's most commonly used server types remain largely underutilized leading to a huge waste of hardware resources and energy.
