Where JOIN and UNION have the normal relational meaning. It must of course be possible to reconstitute a global relation from its fragments by the application of standard relational operators. In practice this means that the primary key of the relation R must be included in all vertical fragments. Thus both A and B, and C and D, must be joinable and (A JOIN B), (C JOIN D) and E all union compatible. A collection of materialized relations at some particular time is called a snapshot. The allocation schema then specifies, at which site each fragment is stored.
