Evaluating Caching and Storage Options on the Amazon Web Services Cloud

Summary: Evaluating Caching and Storage Options on the
Amazon Web Services Cloud

Abstract--With the availability of on-demand compute and
storage infrastructures, many users are deploying data-intensive
scientific applications onto Clouds. To accelerate these applica-
tions, the prospect of caching intermediate data using the Cloud's
elastic compute and storage framework has been promising. To
this end, we believe that an in-depth study of cache placement
decisions over various Cloud storage options would be highly
beneficial to a large class of users. While tangential analyses
have recently been proposed, ours in contrast focuses on cost and
performance tradeoffs of maintaining a data cache with varying
parameters of any Cloud application. We have compared several
Amazon Web Service (AWS) Cloud resources as possible cache
placements: within machine instances (in-memory, on-disk, on
large mountable disk volumes) and in cheap persistent Cloud
