Cost-Effective Data Set Storage Strategies

Due to the pay-as-you-go model, we design cost-effective data set storage strategies for users based on the trade-off between computation and storage in the cloud. Different from benchmarking, in practice, the MCSS may not be the ultimate goal for the applications because storage strategies should be efficient for users to facilitate at run-time in the cloud and may need to take users’ tolerance of data-accessing delay into consideration. This chapter is organised as follows.

In Section 6.1, by investigating users’ tolerance of data-accessing delay and users’ preferences regarding the storage of particular data sets, we introduce two new attributes of the data sets in DDG accordingly [89]. With the ...
