This is an advanced course in the area of databases, focusing on how database systems are architected and implemented to achieve essential properties such as high performance and reliability. Whereas in an introductory course on databases (such as INFS 614 or CS 550) the focus is how to work with database systems (database design, query languages, application programming, and so on), the focus of this course is how database systems work.
