A Glass Half Full: Using Programmable Hardware Accelerators in Analytical Databases

Even though there have been a large number of proposals to
accelerate databases using specialized hardware, often the opinion of the community is pessimistic: the performance and energy efficiency benefits of specialization are seen to be outweighed by the limitations of the proposed solutions and the additional complexity of including specialized hardware, such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), in servers.
