Flashy-DB - Impact of Flash Solid State Disks on Performance and Architecture of Data-Intensive Software Systems.
DBTechNet is an initiative of European universities and IT-companies to set up a transnational collaboration scheme of higher level educational establishments, IT enterprises, and vocational training centres who will collaborate in order to achieve a three-fold goal, namely:
- developing efficient Internet based tools (like a Web-based IT terminology encyclopaedia, universal database access terminal, etc) which will organize worldwide access to DB technology resources and educational/training material and references,
- design and develop virtual workshop type course modules on selected DB topics that will address the wide spectrum of new trends, backed by online support from a network of educational and IT professional experts, and
- promote research and entrepreneurship by developing a business plan of operation, which will make it possible for the collaboration scheme in question to evolve into a self-sustained consortium that will function within the new emerging reality of education and vocational training in today’s Information and Communication Technology driven society.
