Make Your Database Dream of Electric Sheep: Designing for Autonomous Operation
In this talk, I present the core design principles of an autonomous DBMS. These are necessary to support ample data collection, fast state changes, and accurate reward observations. I will discuss techniques on how to build a new autonomous DBMS or the steps needed to retrofit an existing one to enable automated management. Our work is based on our experiences at CMU from developing an automatic tuning service (OtterTune) and our self-driving DBMS (Peloton).
Andy Pavlo is an Assistant Professor of Databaseology in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. He also used to raise clams.
Lunch for talk attendees will be served at 12:00pm.
