Mike Stonebraker Blasts “One Size Fits All”

When it comes to DBMS inventors, Mike Stonebraker is the next closest thing to Codd. And he’s become a huge non-believer in the idea that one DBMS architecture meets all needs.

Frankly, there isn’t much in that paper that hasn’t already been said in this blog, except for the part that is specifically relevant to one of his startups, StreamBase. Still, it’s nice to have the high-powered agreement.

More recently, the argument in that paper has been extended with a benchmark-filled follow-up based on another Stonebraker startup, Vertica.
