ABSTRACT
Cloud Computing refers to the use of large-scale computer clusters often built from low-cost hardware and network equipment, where resources are allocated dynamically among users of the cluster. While the paradigm is not entirely novel, recent developments in software frameworks for Cloud Computing are making it increasingly easy for programmers to parallelize and thereby scale-up complex data-processing tasks. This article investigates how this trend is impacting the Semantic Web field and shows how Cloud Computing can be used to analyze, query, and reason with the massive amounts of metadata handled by semantic search engines.
