Interesting...reminds me of a startup outfit many years ago (I think it was called "Nucleus"?) that was developing a very similar low- level query-processor-on-a-chip. I believe there were some ex-Tdat'ers on their staff. I think they ultimately went belly up due to lack of supporting technology in those days (e.g., no gigabit enet switches, and disks were still pretty small capacity back then).

Inmon's comments seem a bit confused wrt to early Teradata, tho. Anyone who opened up an old DBC/1012 knows it was pretty similar to the rackmount appliance concept, except with tech that predated the ability to cheaply built lots of functionality into single chips. Take an old AMP board and compress it down to a single chip, migrate some filesystem code into the chip, and I'd think you'd pretty much have a Snippet Processor.
