Hyracks is a new partitioned-parallel software platform designed to run data-intensive computations on large shared-nothing clusters of computers. Hyracks allows users to express a computation as a DAG of data operators and connectors. Operators operate on partitions of input data and produce partitions of output data, while connectors repartition(More)
AsterixDB is a new, full-function BDMS (Big Data Management System) with a feature set that distinguishes it from other platforms in today’s open source Big Data ecosystem. Its features make it well-suited to applications like web data warehousing, social data storage and analysis, and other use cases related to Big Data. AsterixDB has a flexible NoSQL(More)
At UC Irvine, we are building a next generation parallel database system, called ASTERIX, as our approach to addressing today’s “Big Data” management challenges. ASTERIX aims to combine time-tested principles from parallel database systems with those of the Web-scale computing community, such as fault tolerance for long running jobs. In this demo, we(More)
We present DXQ, an extension of XQuery to support the effective and efficient development of distributed XML applications. A DXQ program can invoke remote DXQ programs both synchronously and asynchronously and can dynamically ship DXQ code to execute at remote servers. We illustrate the power of the language with two distributed applications: the resolution(More)
Many modern applications, from Grid computing to RSS handling, need to support data processing in a distributed environment. Currently, most such applications are implemented using a general purpose programming language, which can be expensive to maintain, hard to configure and modify, and require hand optimization of the distributed data processing(More)
ASTERIX is a new data-intensive storage and computing platform project spanning UC Irvine, UC Riverside, and UC San Diego. In this paper we provide an overview of the ASTERIX project, starting with its main goal—the storage and analysis of data pertaining to evolving-world models. We describe the requirements and associated challenges, and explain how the(More)
We present and analyze an algorithm for equivalent rewriting of XQuery queries using XQuery views, which is complete for a large class of XQueries featuring nested FLWR blocks, XML construction and join equalities by value and identity. These features pose significant challenges which lead to fundamental extension of prior work on the problems of rewriting(More)
The standard approach for optimization of XPath queries by rewriting using views techniques consists in navigating inside a view’s output, thus allowing the usage of only one view in the rewritten query. Algorithms for richer classes of XPath rewritings, using intersection or joins on node identifiers, have been proposed, but they either lack completeness(More)
XML messaging is at the heart of Web services, providing the flexibility required for their deployment, composition, and maintenance. Yet, current approaches to Web services development hide the messaging layer behind Java or C# APIs, preventing the application to get direct access to the underlying XML information. To address this problem, we advocate the(More)
