Workload-Based Heuristics for Evaluation of Physical Database Architectures
Database systems are widely used in different application domains. Therefore, it is difficult to decide which database management system meets the requirements of a certain application at most. This observation is also true for scientific and statistical data management, due to new application and research fields. New requirements are often implied to data management while discovering unknown research and applications areas. That is, heuristics and tools do not exist to select an optimal database management system.
