3Distributed database system A distributed database is a collection of multiple, logically interrelated databases distributed over a computer network.A distributed database management system (DDBMS) is a software system that permits the management of the distributed databases and makes the distribution transparent to the users.differentiate collaboration and coordination, trade-offs.4
4What is not a DDBMS?A DDBMS is not a “collection of files” that can be stored at each node of a computer network.A multiprocessor system based DBMS (parallel database system) is not a DDBMS.A DDBMS is not a system wherein data resides only at one node.bring on slides of Mohan into the other transparency5
5Aims of Distributed DBMS - Transparent Management of Distributed & Replicated Data Transparency refers to separation of the higher-level semantics of a system from lower-level implementation details.From data independence in centralized DBMS to fragmentation transparency in DDBMS.Who should provide transparency? - DDBMS!motivation and major issues
6Aims of Distributed DBMS - Reliability through Distributed Transactions Distributed DBMS can use replicated components to eliminate single point failure.The users can still access part of the distributed database with “proper care” even though some of the data is unreachable.Distributed transactions facilitate maintenance of consistent database state even when failures occur.motivation and major issues
7Aims of Distributed DBMS - Improved Performance Since each site handles only a portion of a database, the contention for CPU and I/O resources is not that severe. Data localization reduces communication overheads.Inherent parallelism of distributed systems may be exploited for inter-query and intra-query parallelism.Performance models are not sufficiently developed.motivation and major issues
8Aims of Distributed DBMS - Easier System Expansion Ability to add new sites, data, and users over time without major restructuring.Huge centralized database systems (mainframes) are history (almost!).PC revolution (Compaq buying Digital, 1998) will make natural distributed processing environments.New applications (such as, supply chain) are naturally distributed - centralized systems will just not work.motivation and major issues
9Complicating FactorsData may be replicated in a distributed environment. Therefore, DDBMS is responsible for (i) choosing one of the stored copies of the requested data, and (ii) making sure that the effect of an update is reflected on each and every copy of that data item.Maintaining consistency of distributed/replicated data.Since each site cannot have instantaneous information on the actions currently carried out in other sites, the synchronization of transactions at multiple sites is harder than centralized system.and Complexity, Cost, Distribution of control, Security,...motivation and major issues

12Transparency and Architecture issues in DDBMSs Basic introduction, how many years project, how many people working on it1
14Top-Down DDBMS Architecture - Classical Global Schema: a set of global relations as if database were not distributed at allFragmentation Schema: global relation is split into “non-overlapping” (logical) fragments. 1:n mapping from relation R to fragments Ri.Allocation Schema: 1:1 or 1:n (redundant) mapping from fragments to sites. All fragments corresponding to the same relation R at a site j constitute the physical image Rj. A copy of a fragment is denoted by Rji.Local Mapping Schema: a mapping from physical images to physical objects, which are manipulated by local DBMSs.
15Global Relations, Fragments and Physical Images (Site2)(Site 1)(Site3)Physical ImagesFragmentsSeparating concepts of fragmentation and allocationExplicit control of redundancyIndependence from local databasesAllows for:Fragmentation TransparencyLocation TransparencyLocal Mapping Transparency
16Rules for Data Fragmentation Completeness: All the data of the global relation must be mapped into fragments.Reconstruction: It must always be possible to reconstruct each global relation from its fragments.Disjointedness: It is convenient if the fragments are disjoint so that the replication of data can be controlled explicitly.
17Types of Data Fragmentation Vertical FragmentationProjection on relation (subset of attributes)Reconstruction by joinUpdates require no tuple migrationHorizontal FragmentationSelection on relation (subset of tuples)Reconstruction by unionUpdates may requires tuple migrationMixed FragmentationA fragment is a Select-Project query on relation.Vertical FragmentationHorizontal Fragmentation
18Levels of Distribution Transparency Fragmentation Transparency: Just like using global relations.Location Transparency: Need to know fragmentation schema; but need not know where fragments are located. Applications access fragments (no need to specify sites where fragments are located).Local Mapping Transparency: Need to know both fragmentation and allocation schema; no need to know what the underlying local DBMSs are. Applications access fragments explicitly specifying where the fragments are located.No Transparency: Need to know local DBMS query languages, and write applications using functionality provided by the Local DBMS
19Why is support for transparency difficult? There are tough problems in query optimization and transaction management that need to be tackled (in terms of system support and implementation) before fragmentation transparency can be supported.Less distribution transparency the more the end-application developer needs to know about fragmentation and allocation schemes, and how to maintain database consistency.Higher levels of distribution transparency require appropriate DDBMS support, but makes end-application developers work easy.
20Some Aspects of top-down architecture Distributed database technology is an “add-on” technology, most users already have populated centralized DBMSs. Whereas top down design assumes implementation of new DDBMS from scratch.In case of OODBMs, top-down architecture makes sense because most OODBMs are going to be built from scratch.In many application environments, such as semi-structured databases, continuous multimedia data, the notion of fragment is difficult to define.Current relational DBMS products provide for some form of location transparency (such as, by using nicknames).
21Bottom up Architecture - Present & Future Possible ways in which multiple databases may be put together for sharing by multiple DBMSs.The DBMSs are characterized according toAutonomy - degree to which individual DBMSs can operate independently. Tightly coupled - integrated (A0), Semiautonomous -federated (A1), Total Isolation - multidatabase systems(A2)Distribution - no distribution - single site (D0), client-server - distribution of DBMS functionality (D1), full distribution - peer to peer distributed architecture(D2)Heterogeneity - homogeneous (H0) or heterogeneous (H1)
23Architectural Alternatives (A0,D0,H0): multiple DBMSs that are logically integrated at single site - composite systems.(A0,D0,H1): multiple database managers that are heterogeneous but provide integrated view to the user.(A0,D1,H0): client-server based DBMS.(A0,D2,H0): Classical distributed database system architecture.(A1,D0,H0): Single site, homogeneous, federated database systems - not realistic.(A1,D0,H1): heterogeneous federated DBMS, having common interface over disparate cooperating specialized database systems.
24Architectural Alternatives (A1,D1,H1): heterogeneous federated database systems with components of the systems placed at different sites.(A2,D0,H0): homogeneous multidatabase systems at a single site.(A2,D0,H1): heterogeneous multidatabase systems at a single site.(A2,D1,H1) & (A2,D2,H1): distributed heterogeneous multidatabase systems. In case of client-server environments it creates a three layer architecture. Interoperability is the major issue.Autonomy, distribution, heterogeneity are orthogonal issues.
25Client/Server Database Systems Distinguish and divide the functionality to be provided into two classes: server functions and client functions. That is, two level architecture. Made popular by relational DBMS implementations.DBMS client: user interface, application, consistency checking of queries, and caching and managing locks on cached data.DBMS Server: handles query optimization, data access and transaction management.Typical scenarios: multiple clients/single server; multiple client/multiple servers (dedicated home-server or any server)

32Global Directory Issues Directory is itself a database that contains meat-data about the actual data stored in the database. It includes the support for fragmentation transparency for the classical DDBMS architecture.Directory can be local or distributed.Directory can be replicated and/or partitioned.Directory issues are very important for large multi-database applications, such as digital libraries.
