Human beings are moving from the IT era to the DT (data technology) era in which data is the most valuable resource. In terms of Big Data computing, the mainstream computing systems of Big Data represented by Hadoop, Spark and Flink have different programming models and interfaces, which focus on batch or stream tasks respectively. With the development of mobile internet, the traditional cloud computing model has been unable to effectively promote the development of new applications such as smart homes and smart cities. Therefore, mixed batch & stream processing, cross-domain deployments and edge computing will be the development and research trends of the future big data computing.
In this talk, we will first review the traditional big data computing platforms, and introduce their development history, characteristics, advantages and core issues. We then will analyze the challenges and difficulties faced by the traditional cloud computing models from the aspects of batch & stream interactive computing, cross-data center computing and mobile edge computing. We finally propose the development and research trends for future data computing under the era of Big Data 2.0.
