Large-Scale Linked Data Processing: Cloud Computing to the Rescue?

At the upcoming 2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science (CLOSER 2012) we – Robert Grossman, Andreas Harth, Philippe Cudré-Mauroux and myself – will present a paper with the title Large-Scale Linked Data Processing: Cloud Computing to the Rescue? and the following abstract:

Processing large volumes of Linked Data requires sophisticated methods and tools. In the recent years we have mainly focused on systems based on relational databases and bespoke systems for Linked Data processing. Cloud computing offerings such as SimpleDB or BigQuery, and cloud-enabled NoSQL systems including Cassandra or CouchDB as well as frameworks such as Hadoop offer appealing alternatives along with great promises concerning performance, scalability and elasticity. In this paper we state a number of Linked Data-specific requirements and review existing cloud computing offerings as well as NoSQL systems that may be used in a cloud computing setup, in terms of their applicability and usefulness for processing datasets on a large-scale.

A pre-print is available now and if you have any suggestions please let me know.

  1. Good work! The only thing I see missing is the ack for LATC at the end of the paper 😉

  2. Thanks and yes the LATC ack will of course be inserted in the CR version 😉
