Cloud data management; Cloud database systems


Data management and data centers are both broad terms that encompass a broad set of systems that manage data for applications deployed in data centers. Data management refers to storing an application’s data and serving the application’s requests for accessing or manipulating the data. A data center comprises a large collection of commodity servers which host a wide variety of applications. Data management in data centers is the set of techniques and design patterns that are used to efficiently manage data for applications deployed in the data centers. Data management in these huge data centers poses many challenges such as dealing with large scale of data and requests, providing fault tolerance and high availability, supporting a wide variety of application workloads, and sharing data center resources among different applications.

Historical Background
