I was looking at 8GB memory sticks at Costco yesterday under $20.00. Look at WX 2 (nee White Cross), Teradata, SAND and Vertica for column oriented RDBMS products.

In my next book, I carry things one step further. JOINs will become cheaper than computations in the near future -- they are mostly equality tests or simple comparisons. So more stuff will be done by table look up in parallel hardware. Received on Sat Oct 13 2007 - 16:02:42 CEST
