Data Management Techniques

The huge and ever growing volume of data (“the data tsunami”) in all fields is driving many advances in data management practices. If you are interested in this field, I recommend this excellent volume: “Scientific Data Management: Challenges, Technology and Deployment,” edited by Arie Shoshani and Doron Rotem (CRC Press, 2010). It reviews the state-of-the-art in all aspects of data management, including physical organization of storage systems, efficient access to huge data volumes, optimized search methods, and workflow and provenance management.

There is a very good interview with Arie Shoshani on the topic of data management at  International Science Grid This Week

    OK Bruce, I ordered it. I remember Arie Shoshani from a previous life, and have appreciated his practicality and experience.
