Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wachsende Datenströme und die damit verbundene Herausforderung einer effizienten Verwaltung deuten darauf hin, dass auch Datenbankmanagementsysteme (DBMS) vor einer Revolution stehen. Tape is Dead, Disk is Tape, Flash is Disk, RAM Locality is King. So beschrieb Gray, Informatiker und Wissenschaftler bei Microsoft Research, die zunehmende Verschiebung der Speicherhierarchie. Haben traditionelle DBMS noch Sekundärspeicher unter entweder zeilen- oder spaltenorientierter Datenorganisation verwendet, gebrauchen In-Memory Datenbanken (IMDB) Hauptspeicher und eine primär spaltenorientierte Datenorganisation. Damit soll es in Echtzeit möglich sein zum einen große Datenmengen auswerten und zum anderen die Informationen zum Zeitpunkt des Entstehens verarbeiten zu können. Verhinderte in den Achtziger Jahren die starke Unzuverlässigkeit des Hauptspeichers und das hohe Preisniveau die Etablierung von IMDB, so ist es heute möglich den Einsatz in Datenbanken ökonomisch zu legitimieren.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Informatik - Allgemeines, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Cloud computing is a new computing technology which has attracted much attention. Unfortunately, it is a risk prone technology since users are sharing remote computing resources, data is held remotely, and clients lack of control over data. Therefore, assessing security risk of cloud is important to establish trust and to increase the level of confidence of cloud service consumers and provide cost effective and reliable service and infrastructure of cloud providers. This paper provides a survey on the state of the art research on risk assessment in the cloud environment.
