Title: Cloud based Active Archiving Solution for Databases


Cloud computing offers an exciting opportunity to bring on-demand
applications to customers and is being used for delivering hosted
services over the Internet and/or processing massive amount of data for
business intelligence. In this talk, we will discuss the architecture of
cloud computing, MapReduce, and Hadoop. We will then discuss how the
cloud infrastructure can be used for data management services, how the
massive amount of data can be processed over cloud for various business
intelligence applications, and how the cloud can be used for 'Active'
Data Archival for near real-time data access. We discuss various issues
concerning the active archive system including schema modification,
query federation, query optimization, access control and data
provenance. Using TPC-DS benchmark data, we present evaluation results
that shows the ability of our system to seamlessly query archive data
along with data stored in the warehouse in order of minutes compared to
hours required to move the data into the warehouse from traditional
archival systems.
