RELEX Group has received Patent №2672001 for adaptive space management methods for memory devices.
The invention allows the DBMS to adapt to the stored data (modify some operational characteristics according to the accumulated statistics on data structure and reading/modification frequency). In other words, the DBMS is able to choose between compactness (for rarely used data) and convenience (for frequently accessed data).
The solution enhances the efficiency of data storage on memory devices. It improves the database performance and will definitely be useful in next-generation DBMSs.
