Our paper “AnyDB: An Architecture-less DBMS for Any Workload” was accepted to CIDR 2021

In this paper, we present a radical vision to architect databases in future.

We propose a radical new approach for scale-out distributed DBMSs. Instead of hard-baking an architectural model, such as a shared-nothing architecture, into the distributed DBMS design, we aim for a new class of so-called architecture-less DBMSs.

The main idea is that an architecture-less DBMS can mimic any architecture on a per-query basis on-the-fly without any additional overhead for reconfiguration. Our initial results show that our architecture-less DBMS AnyDB can provide significant speed-ups across varying workloads compared to a traditional DBMS implementing a static architecture.
