Keynote: To Support Complex Structures in RDBMSs

Jeffrey Xu Yu

The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Abstract:RDBMs have been extensively studied over decades to manage large datasets, and there has been a long history of supporting complex structures in RDBMSs since early 1970. In this talk, we review some approaches to handle complex structures in RDBMSs. As it becomes important to support large graphs processing by algorithm design and system development, we revisit the issue how to support graph processing in RDBMSs. Our work is motivated by the fact that in real applications there are many relations that are closely related to a large graph stored in RDBMS and there are needs to conduct graph/data analytics together in an integrated system. To support graph analytics in RDBMSs, we discuss new relational algebra operations that can be defined by the basic relational algebra operations with group-by-&-aggregation; and we discuss new SQL recursive queries that are ensured to have a fixpoint with the new operations. In addition, we discuss how to support such new operations and new SQL recursive queries by SparkSQL and GraphX on Spark, and how to optimize SQL queries by separating communication from computation in a distributed system, in order to achieve high efficiency.

Keynote: The Value of Distributed RDBMS

Zhenkun Yang

OceanBase, Ant Group

Abstract:In 1970, the relational model was invented by Dr. E. F. Codd followed by the emergence of SQL language, RDBMS gradually matured in the 1980s and became the cornerstone of various information systems. Mainly due to technical difficulties, all RDBMS are centralized systems. In the 1990s, with the development of the Internet, centralized RDBMS, due to its very limited scalability, were unable to meet the high concurrency and massive data requirements of Internet services and database sharding became the only feasible solution. However, sharding implies poor inter-shard transaction performance and costly and risky refactor of the business system. With scale-out ability and agile flexibility, distributed RDBMS is the ideal solution to high concurrency access and massive data system. This report presents the advantages of distributed RDBMS and introduces the practice of OceanBase distributed relational database system.

BIO:Dr. Zhenkun Yang got his bachelor and master from the Department of Mathematics and Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science, Peking University. Then he became an associate professor and a full professor in computer science, Peking University. He received the Cheung Kong Scholar Award, Peking University in 1999. He was the 4th person in the first-class award of the National Science and Technology Progress of China in 1995. He also won the first-class award of Science and Technology Progress of Beijing in 1996, National Youth Science and Technology Award of China in 1998, Qiushi Eminent Youth Award of the China Association for Science and Technology in 1998, and Wusi Youth Award of Beijing in 2000. He won the Wangxuan Award of China Computer Federation in 2022. He is the first inventor of 20+ patents. In 2010, he initiated the development of OceanBase distributed relational database at Alibaba. OceanBase passed the TPC-C benchmark test in 2019 and broke the performance record held by Oracle for 9 years and passed the TPC-H benchmark test in 2021 and broke the performance record(@30,000GB). Today, OceanBase is serving many banks, insurance, energy, communication companies as well as government sectors both in China and abroad. Now Dr. Zhenkun Yang is the chief scientist of OceanBase company.

Topic: Efficient big graph data analysis: mesoscopic and macroscopic perspectives

Long Yuan

Abstract: Graph is an abstract data structure consisting of vertices and edges, which can be used naturally to model the multi-source heterogeneous data. Therefore, graph model and graph data analysis are becoming one of the most important topics in big data research and widely used in real applications. Graph analysis can be conducted from different perspectives. In this talk, I will introduce the typical research problems and relevant research progress in mesoscopic and macroscopic graph analysis, and discuss the future research directions in this important and growing research area.

Topic: Discussion on Incremental Graph Processing

Shufeng Gong

Northeastern University

Abstract: By using the memorized previous computation state, incremental graph computation can reduce unnecessary re-computation, which may require a lot of memory. How to efficiently process dynamic graphs incrementally with as few intermediate results as possible? A small change may propagate over the whole graph and lead to large-scale iterative computations. How to constraint incremental computation into a smaller scope? We will discuss how to solve the above two problems.
