This paper presents a description of SciDB, as it exists in late 2012. Previous papers [1, 2] have presented many of the design decisions. Hence, we focus here on what we have learned since the previous SciDB papers, &#x201C;sweet spot&#x201D; application areas, performance comparisons against other possible solutions, and other plausible approaches to managing data with a workload consisting of a mix of data management and complex analytics. Also included is a brief history of the project.
