Summary: Information correlation in and between big data application workflows scheduled on cloud can help to significantly reduce overall scheduling cost by avoiding the execution of many correlated workflow activities. This project aims to systematically investigate such correlation for cost efficient scheduling. The expected outcomes are: (1) establishing information correlation based scheduling research and practical solutions for this important cloud and big data research area; (2) benefiting key big data application areas on cloud, such as hospitals, insurance companies and government information services; and (3) helping to maintain Australia at the forefront of cloud and big data research with innovative industry applications.
