Coherent PaaS – Coherent and rich PaaS as a common programming model

Focus: Providing a rich Platform as a Service with different “one size” data stores optimised for particular tasks, data and workloads. Integrating NoSQL data stores such as key-value data stores and graph databases, SQL data stores such as in-memory and column-oriented databases, hybrid systems such as SQL engines, on top of key-value data stores, and complex event processing data management systems.

Coordinator: Unversidad Polytecnica de Madrid, Spain

Partnership: Neurocom SA, Greece; INRIA, France; Hellas (Foundation for Research and Technology), Greece; Institute of Engineering Systems and Computers, Portugal; Sparsity, Spain; MonetDB, Netherlands; QuartetFS, UK; Portugal Telecom, Portugal; Institute of Communication and Computer Systems, Greece

Impact: This will be achieved through simplicity: programming with a single query language; scalability: across all data management technologies; efficiency: avoiding copying and translating TBs of data from one data store to another (i.e. ETL jobs); coherence: transactional semantics across data stores.
