Literature Review

This chapter reviews the existing literature related to this research. It is organised as follows. In Section 2.1, we summarise the data management work about scientific applications in the traditional distributed computing systems. In Section 2.2, we first review some existing work about deploying scientific applications in the cloud and raise the issue of cost-effectiveness; we then analyse some research that has touched upon the issue of the trade-off between computation and storage and point out the differences to our work.
