In the second talk of the UMBC ACM Student Chapter's Tech Talk Series, ACM Distinguished Speaker Dr. Mukesh Mohania will visit UMBC and talk about "Cloud based Active Archiving Solution for Databases".

Cloud computing offers an exciting opportunity to bring on-demand applications to customers and is being used for delivering hosted services over the Internet and/or processing massive amount of data for business intelligence. In this talk, we will discuss the architecture of cloud computing, MapReduce, and Hadoop. We will then discuss how the cloud infrastructure can be used for data management services, how the massive amount of data can be processed over cloud for various business intelligence applications, and how the cloud can be used for 'Active' Data Archival for near real-time data access. We discuss various issues concerning the active archive system including schema modification, query federation, query optimization, access control and data provenance. Using TPC-DS benchmark data, we present evaluation results that shows the ability of our system to seamlessly query archive data along with data stored in the warehouse in order of minutes compared to hours required to move the data into the warehouse from traditional archival systems.

Light refreshments will be served after the talk outside ITE-325
