Many scientific fields routinely generate huge datasets. In many cases, these datasets are not static but rapidly grow in size. Handling these types of datasets, as well as allowing sophisticated queries necessitates scalable distributed database systems, in which scientists are efficiently able to search the datasets. In this paper we present the architecture, implementation and performance analysis of a scalable, distributed database system built on software based virtualization environments… CONTINUE READING
