Data management systems have traditionally been designed to support either long-running analytics queries or short-lived transactions, but an increasing number of applications need both. For example, online games, socio-mobile apps, and e-commerce sites need to not only maintain operational state, but also analyze that data quickly to make predictions and recommendations that improve user experience. In this paper, we present Minuet, a distributed, main-memory B-tree that supports both transactions and copy-on-write snapshots for in-situ analytics. Minuet uses main-memory storage to enable low-latency transactional operations as well as analytics queries without compromising transaction performance. In addition to supporting read-only analytics queries on snapshots, Minuet supports writable clones, so that users can create branching versions of the data.
