ASTERIX: An Open Source System for "Big Data" Management and Analysis (Demo)
At UC Irvine, the authors are building a next generation parallel database system, called ASTERIX, as their 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 paper, they present a whirlwind tour of ASTERIX, highlighting a few of its key features. They will demonstrate examples of their data definition language to model semi-structured data, and examples of interesting queries using their declarative query language.
