Hardware techniques and environments underwent significant transformations in the field of information technology, represented by high-performance processors and hardware accelerators characterized by abundant heterogeneous parallelism, nonvolatile memory with hybrid storage hierarchies, and RDMA-enabled high-speed network. Recent hardware trends in these areas deeply affect data management and analysis applications. In this paper, we first introduce the development trend of the new hardware in
