Streaming data cognition has become a dominant problem in interactive visual analytics for event detection, meteorology, cosmology, security, and smart city applications. In order to interact with streaming data patterns in an elastic cloud environment, we present a new elastic framework for big data visual analytics in the cloud, the Cloudet. The Cloudet is a self- Adaptive cloud-based platform that treats both data and compute nodes as elastic objects. The main objective is to readily achieve the scalability and elasticity of cloud computing platforms in order to process large streaming data and adapt to potential interactions between data stream features. Our main contributions include a robust cloud-based framework called the Cloudet. This is a cloud profile manager that attempts to optimize resource parameters in order to achieve expressivity, scalability, reliability, and the proper aggregation of the compute nodes and data streams into several density maps for the purpose of dynamic visualization.
