The vast majority of machine learning, statistical, and scientific operations can be expressed via a small number of linear algebra operations. SciDB is a database system designed to support scalable linear algebra over massive arrays stored on disk of a large cluster of machines. It is much faster than relational databases on these types of workloads, and scales to much larger datasets than main memory matrix-oriented systems like Matlab and R.Additional Information: Stonebraker Interview
