This document introduces the TimeCloud Front End, a web-based interface for the TimeCloud platform that manages large-scale time series in the cloud. While the Back End is built upon scalable, fault-tolerant distributed systems as Hadoop and HBase and takes novel approaches for facilitating data analysis over massive time series, the Front End was built as a simple and intuitive interface for viewing the data present in the cloud, both with simple tabular display and the help of various visualizations. In addition, the Front End implements model-based views and data fetch on-demand for reducing the amount of work performed at the Back End.
