Abstract or Table of Contents

Big Data applications, those that require large data corpora either for correctness or for delity, are becoming increasingly prevalent. Tashi is a cluster management system designed particularly for enabling cloud computing applications to operate on repositories of Big Data. These applications are extremely scalable but also have very high resource demands. A key technique for making such applications perform well is Location-Awareness. This paper demonstrates that location-aware applications can outperform those that are not location aware by factors of 3-11 and describes two general services developed for Tashi to provide location-awareness independently of the storage system.
