  • Publication number: 20180173736
    Abstract: In a system in which a database process among processes of a computer is offloaded to one or more hardware circuits each having a memory, the computer divides a column store database made up of a plurality of records and a plurality of columns into a plurality of data segments. One or more columns among the plurality of columns are each one or more compression target columns. Each of the plurality of data segments includes: a column store database portion made up of one or more records among the plurality of records; and a compression dictionary which is a dictionary for decompressing one or more compression target column portions within the column store database portion. The size of the compression dictionary in each of the plurality of data segments is equal to or smaller than the size of the memory.

  • Publication number: 20180165148
    Abstract: A computer including a processor and a memory and a storage device that is connected to the computer and stores data has an FPGA that acquires data and an operation command from a control unit that controls reading and writing with respect to a non-volatile semiconductor storage unit to perform a data operation. The computer generates and transmits the operation command from an access request that has been received to the storage device. The computer receives execution results for the operation command from the storage device, and when the number of execution results for the operation command reaches a prescribed value, instructs the FPGA to detect a soft error, receives all execution results with respect to the generated operation command, and if there is no soft error, transmits the execution results.
