Hi guys,

Title: Parallel Analytics as a Service


Time: Tuesday, 2014, 10 AM

Venue: SEIEE-03-414

Host: Kenny Q. Zhu (朱其立)



Recently, massively parallel processing relational database systems (MPPDBs) like Vertica, Microsoft PDW, and Greenplum, have gained much momentum in the big data analytic market. With the advent of hosted cloud computing, we envision that the offering of MPPDB-as-a-Service (MPPDBaaS) will become attractive for companies having analytical tasks on only hundreds gigabytes to some ten terabytes of data because they can enjoy high-end parallel analytics at a cheap cost. In this talk, I will introduce Thrifty, a prototype implementation of MPPDB-as-a-service. The major challenge of building Thrifty is how to achieve a lower total cost of ownership by consolidating thousands of MPPDB tenants on to a shared hardware infrastructure while keeping certain performance SLA guarantees.  The talk will cover the system design, algorithms, and the latest updates of Thrifty.
