Special Issue on Cloud Data Management

1.     Overview

Cloud based computing emerges as a popular business model where software and platforms can be utilized as services supported by large data centers and cluster computers. Cloud-based data storage and management is a rapidly expanding business, which has substantially reduced the cost of data storage and delivery.  Such cloud environment needs to manage data center virtualization, lower cost and boost reliability by consolidating systems in the cloud.  The new environment creates major data management challenges, such as Petabyte scale data storage, massively parallel query execution, facilities for analytical processing, and online query processing.

This special issue will bring together recent advances in research and development of large data management in a cloud computing environment, including practical use cases of current and anticipated data challenges, the state of the art data handling technologies on extremely large datasets in the cloud, and lessons learned on building data management solutions in the cloud.

2.     Topics

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

·         Cloud computing infrastructure for big data storage and computing

·         Cloud privacy and security

·         Cloud data management of sensor stream data
