The distributed shuffle index strengthens the guarantees of access confidentiality provided by the shuffle index through the distribution of data among three cloud providers. In this paper, we analyze architectural and design issues and describe an implementation of the distributed shuffle index integrated with different cloud providers (i.e., Amazon S3, OpenStack Swift, Google Cloud Storage, and EMC Elastic Cloud Storage). The experimental results obtained with our implementation confirm the protection guarantees provided by the distributed shuffle index and its limited performance overhead, demonstrating its practical applicability in cloud scenarios.
