Cloud-Specific Services for Data Management

  • Wolfgang Lehner
  • Kai-Uwe Sattler


Cloud-based data management poses several challenges which go beyond traditional database technologies. Outsourcing the operation of database applications to a provider who, on the one hand, takes responsibility not only for providing the infrastructure but also for maintaining the system and, on the other hand, can pool resources and operate them in a cost-efficient and dynamic way promise cost savings and elasticity in usage. However, most customers are willing to move their on-premise setup to a hosted environment only if their data are kept securely and privately as well as non-functional properties such as availability or performance are guaranteed.
