The concept of the data utility as a database system capable of supporting a data model, a large-scale on-line store, and concurrent user access has emerged in recent years. New technology can make the notion of database computers?a specialized hardware system for database use?a viable one. A summary of previous activities and a discussion of the state of the art of database computers is given. An attempt is made to suggest guidelines for future database computer architecture research.
Computer architecture, data models, database computers, database engineering.
