In CIDR 2009, we presented a collection of requirements for SciDB, a DBMS that wouldmeet the needs of scientific users. These included a nested-array data model, science-specific operations such as regrid, and support for uncertainty, lineage, and named versions. In this paper, we present an overview of SciDB's key features and outline a demonstration of the first version of SciDB on data and op-erations from one of our lighthouse users, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST).
