Sudipto Das - Winner of the 2013 SIGMOD Jim Gray Doctoral Dissertation Award

ACM SIGMOD is pleased to present the 2013 SIGMOD Jim Gray Doctoral Dissertation Award to Sudipto Das. Das completed his dissertation titled "Scalable and Elastic Transactional Data Stores for Cloud Computing Platforms" at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Das’ dissertation lays foundations for scalable transactional database services in multi-tenant cloud infrastructures. The thesis develops techniques for scalability based on static as well as dynamic partitioning (sharding) and elasticity by live migration. In combination the techniques achieve elastic scalability without sacrificing transactional consistency. The work is remarkable for its breadth of scope, its comprehensive implementation and thorough performance evaluation.
