Call For Papers

As Cloud Computing becomes more pervasive, existing database management systems (DBMS) are offered as cloud data services and new cloud data services are emerging. New data services cater to new web-scale workloads and Big Data. The cost of testing database systems has been traditionally a large part of the total development cost. Building reliable data services, testing, benchmarking and monitoring quality of service in a production environment is at least an equally challenging and costly undertaking. There is a need for novel and revolutionary ideas for the current situation to improve in the future.

The Reliable Data Services & Systems Workshop (RDSS) replaces the Workshop on Testing Database Systems. Similarly to the DBTest workshop, RDSS aims to expose to the academic community the challenges faced by industry practitioners related to building and testing reliable data services. The long term goal is to devise new techniques that reduce the cost and time to build, test and tune data services so that vendors can spend more time and energy on actual innovations. We see the challenges in building and testing data services as a superset of what practitioners face in traditional DBMS testing. RDSS’s goal is to is shift the focus of the conversation and research ideas to data services while remaining open to the areas of interest covered by DBTest in the past.
