FRESH THINKING TALK
Cost-Intelligent Data Analytics in the Cloud
Huanchen Zhang, Assistant Professor, IIIS (Yao Class) at Tsinghua University
Abstract: For decades, database research has focused on optimizing performance under a fixed amount of resources. As more and more database applications move to the public cloud, we argue that it is time to make cost a first-class citizen when solving database optimization problems. In this talk, I will introduce the concept of "cost intelligence" and then sketch the architecture of a cloud data warehouse designed toward this goal. The project is in its early stages, and we would appreciate your valuable feedback.
