<p>Several research prototypes and commercial object-oriented database management systems (DBMSs) that emphasize the representation and manipulation of complex objects are reviewed. It is argued that clustering and buffering schemes tailored to typical complex object operations offer the best near-term means of improving the performance of databases and that research in clustering and buffering should address recent advances in disk technology: optical and parallel disks. The object-oriented DBMSs reviewed are Orion, Iris, GemStone, Encore, Ontos, Versant, and ObjectStore.</p>
