Abstract

Optimizing the two computing resources of any computing system - time and space - has always been one of the priority objectives of any database. A current and effective solution in this respect is the computer database. Optimizing computer applications by means of data-base machines has been a steady preoccupation of researchers since the late seventies. Several information technologies have revolutionized the present information framework. Out of these, those which have brought a major contribution to the optimization of the databases are: efficient handling of large volumes of data (Data Warehouse, Data Mining, OLAP - On Line Analytical Processing), the improvement of DBMS - Database Management Systems facilities through the integration of the new technologies, the dramatic increase in computing power and the efficient use of it (computer networks, massive parallel computing, Grid Computing and so on). All these information technologies, and others, have favoured the resumption of the research on database machines and the obtaining in the last few years of some very good practical results, as far as the optimization of the computing resources is concerned.

Keywords: database optimization, database machines, data warehouse, OLAP, On Line Analytical Processing, OLTP, On Line Transaction Processing, parallel processing
