A Cloud Oriented Framework for Scientific Data Processing
In recent years, there has been an exponential growth in the amount of data that needs to be processed. The authors' work concerns the use of cloud computing for data processing. To study the problem, they designed a framework for experimenting with various cloud-computing arrangements. The main goal is a framework that has the ability to automatically track the configuration, providing event management, performance measurement and testing for small-scale cloud computing. They show how such a framework can be integrated and accessed in a practical manner using multiple data processing tools.
