Evaluating SPLASH-2 Applications Using MapReduce

MapReduce has been prevalent for running data-parallel applications. By hiding other non-functionality parts such as parallelism, fault tolerance and load balance from programmers, MapReduce significantly simplifies the programming of large clusters. Due to the mentioned features of MapReduce above, researchers have also explored the use of MapReduce on other application domains, such as machine learning, textual retrieval and statistical translation, among others. In this paper, the authors study the feasibility of running typical supercomputing applications using the MapReduce framework.
