Modern in-memory databases profit greatly from new hardware technologies. For example, new processor generations allow for faster accesses to the data (e.g., AVX2), which in turn speeds up column scans
and allows users to query bigger tables in less time.
For this reason, we keep a close eye on what is happening in the hardware world. This includes improvements to current technologies, but also upcoming technologies like NVRAM or On-Die FPGAs.
Our findings are regularly condensed into our Hardware Report. Originally for internal use within the HyriseLab, we are now publishing the reports as we believe that there is a value for outside database researchers as well.
