Architectural Concerns for Flexible Data Management


Subasu, I; Ziegler, P; Dittrich, K R; Gall, H C (2008). Architectural Concerns for Flexible Data Management. In: EDBT 2008 SETMDM, Nantes, France, 25 March 2008 - 29 March 2008.

Abstract

Evolving database management systems (DBMS) towards
more flexibility in functionality, adaptation to changing re-
quirements, and extensions with new or different compo-
nents, is a challenging task. Although many approaches
have tried to come up with a flexible architecture, there
is no architectural framework that is generally applicable to
provide tailor-made data management and can directly inte-
grate existing application functionality. We discuss an alter-
native database architecture that enables more lightweight
systems by decomposing the functionality into services and
have the service granularity drive the functionality. We pro-
pose a service-oriented DBMS architecture which provides
the necessary flexibility and extensibility for general-purpose
usage scenarios. For that we present a generic storage ser-
vice system to illustrate our approach.
