This time ph.d. student Robert Pettersen will give a talk about reducing latency for mobile .NET applications that interact with clouddatabase services.
We demonstrate a practical way to reduce latency for mobile .NET applications that interact with cloud database services.
We provide a programming abstraction for location-independent code, which has the potential to execute either locally or at a satellite execution environment in the cloud, in close proximity to the database service. This preserves a programmatic style of database access, and maintains a simple deployment model, but allows applications to offload latency-sensitive code to the cloud.
Our evaluation shows that this approach can significantly improve the response time for applications that execute dependent queries, and that the required cloud-side resources are modest.
