An Unified Framework for Optimizing Data Analytics

Data analytics in the cloud has become an integral part of enterprise businesses. Big data analytics systems, however, still lack the ability to take user performance goals and budgetary constraints for a task, collectively referred to as task objectives, and automatically configure an analytic job to achieve the objectives.

Our goal, is to come up with a data analytics optimizer that can automatically determine a cluster configuration with a suitable number of cores as well as other runtime system parameters that best meet the task objectives. To achieve this, we also need to design a multi-objective optimizer that constructs a Pareto optimal set of job configurations for task-specific objectives, and recommends new job configurations to best meet these objectives.
