To satisfy the need to efficiently store, query, and analyze catalogs running into trillions of rows and petabytes of data, we are developing Qserv, a distributed shared-nothing SQL database query system. We describe Qserv's design, architecture, and ability to scale to LSST's data requirements. We illustrate its potential with some current test results.
