Cheetah: A High Performance, Custom Data Warehouse on Top of MapReduce
Large-scale data analysis has become increasingly important for many enterprises. Recently, a new distributed computing paradigm, called MapReduce, and its open source implementation Hadoop, has been widely adopted due to its impressive scalability and flexibility to handle structured as well as unstructured data. In this paper, we describe our data warehouse system, called Cheetah, built on top of MapReduce. Cheetah is designed specifically for our online advertising application to allow various simplifications and custom optimizations. First, we take a fresh look at the data warehouse schema design. In particular, we define a virtual view on top of the common star or snowflake data warehouse This virtual view abstraction not only allows us to design a SQL-like but much more succinct query language, but also makes it easier to support many advanced query processing features. Next, we describe a stack of optimization techniques ranging from data compression and access method to m...
