NUMA systems with multiple CPUs and large main memories are common today. Consequently, DataBase Management Systems (DBMSs) in data centers are deployed on NUMA systems. They serve a wide range of database use-cases, single large applications having high performance needs as well as many small applications that are consolidated on one machine to save resources and increase utilization. Database servers often show a natural partitioning in the data that is accessed, e.g., caused by multiple applications accessing only their data.
