Write-Optimized Indexing for Log-Structured Key-Value Stores

The recent shift towards write-intensive workload on big data (e.g., financial trading, social user-generated data streams) has pushed the proliferation of the log-structured key-value stores, represented by Google's BigTable, HBase and Cassandra; these systems optimize write performance by adopting a log-structured merge design. While providing key-based access methods based on a Put/Get interface, these key-value stores do not support value-based access methods, which significantly limit their applicability in many web and Internet applications, such as real-time search for all tweets or blogs containing \"Government shutdown\".
