Massively Distributed Data Management Systems

Large and increasing data volumes have raised the need for distributed storage architectures. Among such architectures, computing in the cloud is an emerging paradigm massively adopted in many applications for the scalability, fault-tolerance and elasticity features it offers, which also allows for effortless deployment of distributed and parallel architectures. At the same time, interest in massively parallel processing has been renewed by the MapReduce model and many follow-up works, which aim at simplifying the deployment of massively parallel data management tasks in a cloud environment. For these reasons, cloud-based stores are an interesting avenue to explore for handling very large volumes of RDF data.

A recent development in this area is the start of our collaboration with social scientists from Univ. Paris-Sud , working on the management of innovation; we have started a collaborative research projects (ANR “Cloud-Based Organizational Design”) where we perform an interdisciplinary analysis (both from a computing and from a business management perspective) on the adoption of cloud technologies within an enterprise.
