Executive Summary

In the recent years, cloud computing has emerged as the new IT paradigm that promises elastic resources on a pay-per-use basis. The challenges of cloud computing are focused around massive data storage and efficient large scale distributed computation. Hadoop, a community driven Apache project has provided an efficient and cost effective platform for large scale computation using the map-reduce methodology, pioneered by Google. In this paper, the design of a Hadoop-based data management system as the front-end service for Cloud data management is investigated.
