  • Building OLAP Data Analytics by Storing Path-Enumeration Keys Into Sorted Sets of Key-Value Store Databases

    White Papers // Sep 2012 // provided by IARIA

    In this paper, a novel approach that allows the retrieval of OLAP analytics by means of storing multidimensional data in key-value databases is described and evaluated. The proposed mechanism relies on generated keys based on the path-enumeration model built upon a tree representation of a relational database. Each key represents ...

  • Message Scheduling and Forwarding in Congested DTNs

    White Papers // Aug 2012 // provided by IARIA

    Multi-copy utility-based routing has been considered as one of the most applicable approaches to effective message delivery in Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs). By allowing multiple message replicas launched, the ratio of message delivery or delay can be significantly reduced compared with other counterparts. Such an advantage, nonetheless, is at the ...

  • Improving Consumer Satisfaction Through Building an Allocation Cloud

    White Papers // Aug 2012 // provided by IARIA

    Consumer satisfaction depends on the quality of service. Services with high quality usually lead to high cost. Due to the budget limitation, consumers tend to acquire services with lowest cost. Feasible request allocation can improve service quality or reduce service cost. Some request allocation algorithms need the coordination with service ...
