Venue: SIC 201, 02nd Floor, C Block, Dept. of Computer Science & Engg., Kanwal Rekhi Building
The JovianDATA multi-dimensional database is architected for processing MDX queries on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. Services like AWS are also known in the industry by the buzzword Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing provides tremendous flexibility in provisioning hundreds of nodes within minutes. With such unlimited power come new challenges that are distinct from those in statically provisioned data processing systems. The timing and length of resource usage is important because most cloud computing platforms charge for the resources by the hour. Too many permanent resources would lead to runaway costs in large systems. The placement of resources is important because it is naive to simply add computing power to a cluster and expect query performance to improve. This leads us to 3 important questions. When should resources be added to a big data solution? How many of these resources should be maintained permanently? Where should these resources be added in the stack?
