Aeneas: A tool that enables application to use effectively Non-Relational databases

2017-08-09T12:39:25+00:00 July 13th, 2013|

Aeneas is a highly configurable tool to support the design of data management code for applications using non-relational databases. The user can configure this tool by providing the data model, the query parameters, and the performance metrics that he wants to evaluate. Then, Aeneas automatically generates the code to define the specified data model, to insert and to retrieve the data, and to evaluate the performance of accessing these data. The current implementation of Aeneas only supports the Apache Cassandra database. However, notice that the modularity of Aeneas makes it easy to add di­fferent modules to support di­fferent databases. Aeneas is developed at BSC under the program Severo Ochoa and at the moment it is available for internal use in our center. However we expect in the [...]
