The Challenges of Global-scale Data Management [Tutorial 5]

FRIDAY, July 1, 2016 (8:30am - 12:00pm)

Abstract: Global-scale data management (GSDM) empowers systems by providing higher levels of fault-tolerance, read availability, and efficiency in utilizing cloud resources. This has led to the emergence of global-scale data management and event processing. However, the Wide-Area Network (WAN) latency separating data is orders of magnitude larger than conventional network latencies, and this requires a reevaluation of many of the traditional design trade-offs of data management systems. Therefore, data management problems must be revisited to account for the new design space. In this tutorial we survey recent developments in GSDM focusing on identifying fundamental challenges and advancements in addition to open research opportunities.
