Describe cloud service requirements.

 CLOUD SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

1. Efficiency/cost reduction

By using cloud infrastructure, you don’t have to spend huge amounts of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment.

2. Data security

Cloud offers many advanced security features that guarantee that data is securely stored and handled. Cloud storage providers implement baseline protections for their platforms and the data they process, such as authentication, access control, and encryption.

3. Scalability

Different companies have different IT needs — a large enterprise of 1000+ employees won’t have the same IT requirements as a start-up. Using the cloud is a great solution because it enables enterprises to efficiently — and quickly — scale up/down according to business demands.

4. Mobility

Cloud computing allows mobile access to corporate data via smartphones and devices, which is a great way to ensure that no one is ever left out of the loop. Staff with busy schedules, or who live a long way away from the corporate office, can use this feature to keep instantly up-to-date with clients and coworkers.

5. Disaster recovery

Data loss is a major concern for all organizations, along with data security. Storing your data in the cloud guarantees that data is always available, even if your equipment like laptops or PCs, is damaged. Cloud-based services provide quick data recovery for all kinds of emergency scenarios

6. Control

Cloud enables you complete visibility and control over your data. You can easily decide which users have what level of access to what data.

7. Market reach

Developing in the cloud enables users to get their applications to market quickly.

8. Automatic Software Updates

Cloud-based applications automatically refresh and update themselves.

Suppose that a data warehouse for Big-University consists of the following four dimensions: student, course, semester, and instructor, and two measures count and avg_grade. When at the lowest conceptual level (e.g., for a given student, course, semester, and instructor combination), the avg_grade measure stores the actual course grade of the student. At higher conceptual levels, avg_grade stores the average grade for the given combination. a) Draw a snowflake schema diagram for the data warehouse. b) Starting with the base cuboid [student, course, semester, instructor], what specific OLAP operations (e.g., roll-up from semester to year) should one perform in order to list the average grade of CS courses for each BigUniversity student. c) If each dimension has five levels (including all), such as “student < major < status < university < all”, how many cuboids will this cube contain (including the base and apex cuboids)?

Discuss classification or taxonomy of virtualization at different levels.

Suppose that a data warehouse consists of the three dimensions time, doctor, and patient, and the two measures count and charge, where a charge is the fee that a doctor charges a patient for a visit. a) Draw a schema diagram for the above data warehouse using one of the schemas. [star, snowflake, fact constellation] b) Starting with the base cuboid [day, doctor, patient], what specific OLAP operations should be performed in order to list the total fee collected by each doctor in 2004? c) To obtain the same list, write an SQL query assuming the data are stored in a relational database with the schema fee (day, month, year, doctor, hospital, patient, count, charge)
