DBMS Architecture Research

Vector may refer to:

  • The mathematical concept of a vector. Lots of things are actually vectors and the term is misused.
  • The Actian Vector DBMS, formerly known as Vectorwise.
  • A sort-of-small sequence of values within of a database table column. The column is itself a vector of values (see above), but some DBMSes (e.g. Actian Vector) work on such sequences atomically for various reasons.
