> Kill the reference architecture and rethink our conception of “database.” The article titled “Architecture of Database System” should be considered harmful. If a system doesn’t have a buffer pool, it can still be a database, and, in fact, I’d prefer not to read any more papers on “databases” that have buffer pools. Instead, I’d prefer you shock me with your radical, new (and useful!) conception of a data management platform.
