This paper describes the basic processing model and architecture of Aurora, a new system to manage data streams for monitoring applications. Monitoring applications differ substantially from conventional business data processing. The fact that a software system must process and react to continual inputs from many sources (e.g., sensors) rather than from(More)

Borealis is a second-generation distributed stream processing engine that is being developed at Brandeis University, Brown University, and MIT. Borealis inherits core stream processing functionality from Aurora [14] and distribution functionality from Medusa [51]. Borealis modifies and extends both systems in non-trivial and critical ways to provide(More)
This paper introduces monitoring applications, which we will show differ substantially from conventional business data processing. The fact that a software system must process and react to continual inputs from many sources (e.g., sensors) rather than from human operators requires one to rethink the fundamental architecture of a DBMS for this application(More)
This paper proposes the use of repetitive broadcast as a way of augmenting the memory hierarchy of clients in an asymmetric communication environment. We describe a new technique called “Broadcast Disks” for structuring the broadcast in a way that provides improved performance for non-uniformly accessed data. The Broadcast Disk superimposes multiple disks(More)

Our previous work has shown that architectural and application shifts have resulted in modern OLTP databases increasingly falling short of optimal performance [10]. In particular, the availability of multiple-cores, the abundance of main memory, the lack of user stalls, and the dominant use of stored procedures are factors that portend a clean-slate(More)
This paper attempts to define an object-oriented database system. It describes the main features and characteristics that a system must have to qualify as an object-oriented database system. We have separated these characteristics into three groups: o Mandatory, the ones the system must satisfy in order to be termed an object-oriented database system. These(More)
Many stream-based applications are naturally distributed. Applications are often embedded in an environment with numerous connected computing devices with heterogeneous capabilities. As data travels from its point of origin (e.g., sensors) downstream to applications, it passes through many computing devices, each of which is a potential target of(More)
Stream-processing systems are designed to support an emerging class of applications that require sophisticated and timely processing of high-volume data streams, often originating in distributed environments. Unlike traditional data-processing applications that require precise recovery for correctness, many stream-processing applications can tolerate and(More)
