Title: Query Optimization over Cloud Data Market
Abstract: In this talk, we present our recent work about query optimization on data market (published in EDBT 2015). Data market is an emerging type of cloud service that enables a data owner to sell their data sets in a public cloud. Buyers who are interested in a certain dataset can access the data in the market via a RESTful API. Accessing data in the data market may not be free. Therefore, we present PayLess, a system that helps data buyers to optimize their queries so that they can obtain the query results by paying less to the data sellers. Experiments over synthetic data and real data sets in Windows Azure Marketplace show that PayLess can cost-effectively handle SQL query processing over data markets.
