This unit will cover topics of active and cutting-edge research within IT in the area of 'Cloud Computing'.
Cloud Computing is an emerging paradigm that will affect individual and organization’s computing needs from small to large. Over the last decade, many cloud computing platforms have set up by companies like Google, Yahoo!, Amazon, Microsoft, Force.com and Facebook. Some of the platforms are open to public via various pricing models. They operate at different levels and enable business to harness different computing power from the cloud.
In this course, we will describe the important enabling technologies of cloud computing; explore the state-of-the art platforms and the existing services; and examine the challenges and opportunities of adopting cloud computing. The course will be organized as a series of presentation and discussion of seminal and timely research papers and article. Students are expected to read all papers, to lead discussion on some of the papers and to complete a hand-on project and a research project.
