This paper presents the design of a read-optimized relational DBMS that contrasts sharply with most current systems, which are write-optimized. Among the many differences in its design are: storage of data by column rather than by row, careful coding and packing of objects into storage including main memory during query processing, storing an overlapping collection of column-oriented projections, rather than the current fare of tables and indexes, a non-traditional implementation of… 
Integrating compression and execution in column-oriented database systems
TLDR
This paper shows how compression schemes not traditionally used in row-oriented DBMSs can be applied to column-oriented systems and evaluates a set of compression schemes and shows that the best scheme depends not only on the properties of the data but also on the nature of the query workload.
Column-oriented query processing for row stores
TLDR
This paper shows that column-oriented query processing can significantly improve the performance of row-oriented DBMSs and introduces new operators that take into account the unique characteristics of data obtained from indexes, and exploits new technologies such as flash SSDs and multi-core processors to boost the performance.
Implementation of Column-oriented Database in Postgresql for Optimization of Read-only Queries
The era of column-oriented database systems has truly begun with open source database systems like C-Store, MonetDb, LucidDb and commercial ones like Vertica. Column-oriented database stores data
Query processing optimization using disk-based row-store and column-store
TLDR
This paper proposes a method for optimizing query processing in a HOLAP system considering the four types of data characteristics such as those of the data extracted by a correlated subquery and by a join operation using tables that are different in size with an appropriate index construction.
Query execution in column-oriented database systems
TLDR
This dissertation provides (to the best of the knowledge) the only detailed study of multiple implementation approaches of such systems, categorizing the different approaches into three broad categories, and evaluating the tradeoffs between approaches.
Materialization Strategies in a Column-Oriented DBMS
TLDR
This paper describes a variety of strategies for tuple construction and intermediate result representations and provides a systematic evaluation of these strategies.
IMPLEMENTATION OF COLUMN -ORIENTED DATABASE IN POSTGRE SQL FOR OPTIMIZATION OF READ -ONLY QUERIES
TLDR
This work proposes the best method for implementing column-store on top of rowstore in PostgreSql along with successful design and implementation of the same.
Implementation Variants for Position Lists
TLDR
The existing WAH library for compressed bitvectors is extended by a number of new methods to be used for the purpose of implementing the functionality of Position Lists based on (compressed) bitvector.
Design and Evaluation of Storage Organizations for Read-Optimized Main Memory Databases
TLDR
This paper systematically evaluating a number of key storage design choices for main memory analytical database settings produces key insights, including that it is always beneficial to organize data into self-contained memory blocks rather than large files.
Efficient columnar storage in B-trees
TLDR
A data compression method that reuses traditional on-disk B-tree structures with only minor changes yet achieves storage density and scan performance comparable to specialized columnar designs is proposed.

TLDR
The Gamma prototype shows how parallelism can be controlled with minimal control overhead through a combination of the use of algorithms based on hashing and the pipelining of data between processes.
The implementation and performance of compressed databases
TLDR
This paper describes how the storage manager, the query execution engine, and the query optimizer of a database system can be extended to deal with compressed data and shows how compression can be integrated into a relational database system.

TLDR
The guiding objectives of the R*effort are discussed, as well as several areas of the implementation which presented special difficulties or were simplified by design decisions.
Query evaluation techniques for large databases
TLDR
This survey describes a wide array of practical query evaluation techniques for both relational and postrelational database systems, including iterative execution of complex query evaluation plans, the duality of sort- and hash-based set-matching algorithms, types of parallel query execution and their implementation, and special operators for emerging database application domains.

Access path selection in a relational database management system
TLDR
This paper describes how System R chooses access paths for both simple (single relation) and complex queries (such as joins) given a user specification of desired data as a boolean expression of predicates.
