Data Management Challenges in Cloud Environments
Recently the cloud computing paradigm has been receiving special excitement and attention in the new researches. Cloud computing has the potential to change a large part of the IT activity, making software even more interesting as a service and shaping the way IT hardware is proposed and purchased. Developers with novel ideas for new Internet services no longer require the large capital outlays in hardware to present their service or the human expense to do it. These cloud applications apply large data centers and powerful servers that host Web applications and Web services. This report presents an overview of what cloud computing means, its history along with the advantages and disadvantages. In this paper we describe the problems and opportunities of deploying data management issues on these emerging cloud computing platforms. We study that large scale data analysis jobs, decision support systems, and application specific data marts are more likely to take benefit of cloud computing platforms than operational, transactional database systems.
