System Description
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 359)


We present some of the major architectural principles of MODEL 204, a commercial database product of Computer Corporation of America for the IBM 370 computer, and indicate how these principles result in exceptional performance advantages performing certain common tasks in complex query processing. A few performance measurements comparing MODEL 204 to other commercial products are presented.
