Cloud platforms integrate three pillars: messaging, coordination of workers and data. This research investigates whether functional programming languages (FPLs) have any special merit when it comes to the implementation of cloud computing platforms. We have implemented an optimistic message queue (CMQ) and an in memory tuple space (cwmwl) for the coordination of workers that can be used as artefact to proof or disproof the special merit of FPLs in computing clouds. We now address the problem of in-stream processing of Big Data (for example social network streams, logistic data or data mashups) to investigate the integration with Big Data.
