Computer systems are not the monolithic machines they used to be. Today, the architecture has developed into a heterogeneous landscape of components, all working together to accomplish a given task. However, making efficient use of all of these devices is difficult. Holger Pirk studies the management of relational data in modern, i.e., asymmetric computer systems. He hereby explores different strategies to identify asymmetries in persistent data, map them to asymmetries in the memory landscape and, eventually, exploit them to increase query processing performance.
