Abstract
With the emergence of cloud computing, many organizations have moved their data to the cloud in order to provide scalable, reliable and highly available services. To meet the ever-growing user needs, these services mainly rely on geographically-distributed data replication to guarantee good performance and high availability. However, with replication, consistency comes into question. Service providers in the cloud have the freedom to select the level of consistency according to the access patterns exhibited by the applications. Most optimizations efforts then concentrate on how to provide adequate trade-offs between consistency guarantees and performance. However, as the monetary cost completely relies on the service providers, in this paper we argue that monetary cost should be taken into consideration when evaluating or selecting a consistency level in the cloud. Accordingly, we define a new metric called consistency-cost efficiency. Based on this metric, we present a simple, yet efficient economical consistency model, called Bismar, that adaptively tunes the consistency level at runtime in order to reduce the monetary cost while simultaneously maintaining a low fraction of stale reads. Experimental evaluations with the Cassandra cloud storage on the Grid?5000 testbed show the validity of the metric and demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed consistency model.
