Recently, data warehouse architect and industry expert, John Ryan, wrote an article about the evolution of database architecture. In it, he reviews traditional database and machine architectures (Oracle, Microsoft, IBM), then more interestingly goes on to detail the main solutions for shared memory, shared disk, and shared nothing databases of today.
Ryan refers to Volt Active Data founder, Dr. Stonebraker, as the thought leader and visionary whose ideas brought the database industry from “slow evolution to [today’s] rapid revolution”. Ryan encourages the pairing of Volt Active Data for real-time intelligent decisions and ACID transactions with Snowflake for enterprise analytics.
