PATC: Persistent Data Model and Management solutions for BigData applications

Date: 23/Jan/2019 Time: 09:30 - 17:30


The course will take place in Barcelona Supercomputing Center, within the UPC Campus Nord premises.

Vertex Building, Room VS208

Cost: There is no registration fee. The attendees would need to cover the expenses for travel, accommodation and meals.

Primary tabs


In this course, we will introduce an approach that allows users to read and write volatile and persistent data using the same interface: the regular Python interface to access variables in memory. We also present two different solutions that implement this interface, and that can be used as the persistent backend for the data: DataClay and Hecuba. Both solutions are integrated with the COMPSs runtimes and the PyCOMPSs programming model through a well-defined interface that, for example, can enhance data locality.


Pre-requisites (para Hecuba): Basics on Python programming language, basic knowledge on NoSQL/Key-value databases, Advisable to have notions about PyCOMPSs/COMPSs
