Luxms R&D center delegates joined ICAIT-2018 and presented their research findings comparing a traditional 3-tier architecture with a data-centric 2-tier architecture for data processing.
Here are three main insights:
- The era of Gordon Moore’s law is coming to an end: engineers can’t scale CPU power the way they used to. New architecture approaches must be found to process rising tide of data.
- Databases are now empowered with analytical capabilities. But traditional BI tools continue to use databases simply as table data sources and are not able to leverage advanced functionality.
- A concept of a data-centric 2-tier architecture with in-database application server demonstrates strong potential as a basis for next generation of analytical systems solving data-intensive tasks.
Luxms BI platform, an analytical engine for decision-making, is a reference implementation of a data-centric 2-tier architecture. Luxms delegates announced the first in the world MPP BI will be released for Greenplum.
ICAIT-2018 was hosted by Aizu University at Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan, on November 1-3, 2018.
