Keynote: Cloud based systems and challenges for data rich research workloads
Workshop: MTAGS17: 10th Workshop on Many-Task Computing on Clouds, Grids, and Supercomputers
Authors: Vani Mandava (Microsoft Research)
Abstract: In this talk we show a glimpse of typical research topologies across hundreds of research projects over the past few years that leveraged platform services and data systems in the cloud. We then look at a few case studies that dive into specific techniques that researchers have used to distribute and efficiently process different types of data using diverse data architecture and storage mechanisms, in domains such as genomics, smart cities, healthcare, and education among others. Finally, we explore the hard challenges in this space, and some recent and upcoming innovations.
