Demo: ALOJA, Cost-Effective Big Data deployments in the Cloud

COMPOSE: IoT Cloud Platform
The DEMO will present the ALOJA Big Data benchmarking repository and Web analytics tools.ALOJA is a research initiative from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in collaboration with Microsoft Research through the BSC-MS Research Centre (https://www.bscmsrc.eu), to produce a systematic study of the cost-effectiveness Hadoop deployments, including upcoming Big Data services in the Cloud.
The DEMO will include an overview of the growing public online repository of Hadoop Benchmark executions (http://hadoop.bsc.es), featuring over 10k executions; the ALOJA open-source deployment and orchestrations tools for Big Data benchmarking in the Cloud; and the main results of the project by navigating through the available Web Analytics tools focusing on Cloud deployments, both IaaS and PaaS.
ALOJA seeks to provide both the knowledge and tools through an online service, for users to make better informed decisions influencing the TCO and the performance for their Big Data infrastructures in the Cloud.
