The world's mainstream programming paradigm for robust, large scale, mission-critical application is Object-Oriented Programming (OOP). Many of such applications need support of database to maintain its data. This paper describes a vision of CellStore, a kind of universal database system, which would be capable of storing and operating on several different data models - object, network, hierarchical and even relational one. Features of CellStore will be described as well as underlying storage model and database architecture.
