By separating each column with the same number of rows, it retains its integrity with the other speakers to the same record. Each data packet is separately compressed to about 10: 1 on average.

Knowledge Base

A layer of metadata (the so-called Knowledge Base, Mesh) retains a compact information about the content and the relationship between the data packets, replacing the traditional concept of a database index.


The optimizer uses the theory of rough set and granular computing categorizing what data should be extracted taking the necessary information from the Knowledge Base
