Traditionally, computing has meant calculating results and then storing those results for later use. Unfortunately, committing large volumes of rarely used data to storage wastes space and energy, making it a very expensive strategy. Cloud computing, with its readily available and flexibly allocatable computing resources, suggests an alternative: storing the provenance data, and means to recomputing results as needed. While computation and storage are equivalent, finding the balance between the… CONTINUE READING
