DATA MODELING Applying Relevant Data Modeling Techniques to MPP Columnar Stores - A Point of View

Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) columnar stores have significant advantages over both traditional row-based data warehouse systems and data warehouse appliances. As a result, MPP columnar stores are gaining faster adoption and acceptance. This point-of-view document brings into focus MPP columnar stores, covers the architecture of MPP and columnar store databases, enlists key advantages (and a few disadvantages), outlines relevant data modeling techniques and shows how they fit in the world of Big Data.
