The last many years have seen the emergence of a new class of
database systems which I am calling Modern Database Systems (MDS). They are
classified broadly as NoSQL and NewSQL systems. Apart from the development of
such systems, traditional DBMS vendors have also extended their decades old
systems like DB2, Informix, Oracle and SQL Server with major architectural
enhancements that address modern requirements and take advantage of hardware
(processor, memory and storage) advances. This talk will do a broad brush
analysis of MDS. It is targeted at a broad set of database systems and
applications people. It is intended to let the audience better appreciate what
is really behind the covers of many of these systems, going beyond the hype
associated with these open source, commercial and research systems. The
capabilities and limitations of such systems will be addressed.
