With increased concern for physical security, video surveillance is becoming an important business area. Similar camera-based system can also be used in such diverse applications as retail-store shopper motion analysis and casino behavioral policy monitoring. There are two aspects of video surveillance that require significant computing power: image(More)
In a commercial Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), sort and join are the most demanding operations, and it is quite beneficial to improve the performance of external sort and external join algorithms that handle large input data sizes. This paper proposes parallel implementations of multithreaded external sort and external hash join algorithms(More)
Apache Spark enables fast computations and greatly accelerates analytics applications by efficiently utilizing the main memory and caching data for later use. At its core Apache Spark uses data structures called RDDs (Resilient Distributed Datasets) to give a unified view to the distributed data. However, the data represented in the RDDs remain unencrypted(More)
In this paper we present our recent research and development work for multicore computing of Line of Sight (LoS) on the Cell Broadband Engine (CBE) processors. LoS can be found in many applications where real-time high performance computing is required. We will describe an efficient LoS multi-core parallel computing algorithm, including the data partition(More)
Cloud service providers are offering the popular Hadoop analytics platform following an "as-a-service" model, i.e. clusters of machines in their cloud infrastructures pre-configured with Hadoop software. Such offerings lower the cost and complexity of deploying a comparable system on-premises, however security considerations and in particular data(More)
