Data storage elasticity – quick view on master thesis work (part 1)

Master Theses

In this post I would like to speak about two master theses that EURA NOVA is managing with the Faculty of Science Engineering of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and with the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL).  The two students have been working on the same topic: the elasticity of  data storage on the cloud.  The first cool stuff to notice is that they are working on two different aspects of the elasticity by taking different directions, but at the end of the day, by their two contributions they draw a complete picture of the NoSQL benchmarking in the cloud. In this post I will give you a preview of their work that should be published in June 2011.

Replacing Pig Latin’s storage engine

Today, we welcome Arthur Lessuise, a student in last year in Master in Computer Science at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). He spent 6 weeks at Euranova R&D for its internship. He studied the ability to swap HDFS in Pig Latin by a NoSQL storage. This post is a summary of his amazing work. Enjoy!
