Workload-aware storage layout for database systems

Oguzhan Ozmen, Kenneth Salem, Jiri Schindler, Steve Daniel
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '10  
We formulate the layout problem as a non-linear programming (NLP) problem and use the I/O description as input to an NLP solver.  ...  In current practice, layout is typically guided by heuristics and rules of thumb, such as separating indexes and tables or striping all objects across all of the available storage devices.  ...  Although the behavior of storage devices can be complex and highly non-linear, the generality of the tabulation/interpolation approach allows us to model them accurately.  ...
