Course: Cloud Computing and Storage Class
Course Objective and Description: Using large-scale computing systems to solve data-intensive realworld problems has become indispensable for many scientific and engineering disciplines. This course provides a broad introduction to the fundamentals in cloud computing and storage, with a focus on system architecture, programming models, algorithmic design, and application development. Selected scientific applications will be used as case studies.
Use of FutureSystems
We have about 50 graduate students working on course projects. They will use FutureGrid to run mainly MapReduce related jobs and conduct performance analysis.
Scale of Use
We have about 50 graduate students working on about 10 course projects.
