Existing programming models for distributed and cloud-based systems tend to abstract away from the architectures of individual target nodes, concentrating instead on higher-level issues of algorithm representation (MapReduce etc.). However, as programmers begin to tackle the issue of Big Data, increasing data volumes are forcing developers to reconsider this approach and to optimise their software heavily. JUNIPER is an EU-funded project which assists Big Data developers to create architecture… CONTINUE READING
