Course: B534/E599 DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS Fall 2016
B534/E599 is a course for young computer scientists working in the field of software and systems. It is offered to a class of 44 students (PhD, Masters) and three AIs covering core Computer Science distributed systems curricula https://iu.instructure.com/courses/1560789. Distributed systems form a rapidly changing field of computer science. We study the evolutional changes in computing landscape characterized by parallel, distributed, and cloud computing systems. We use FutureGrid testbed to build our prototype systems and have an in-depth study the essential issues in practice such as scalability, performance, availability, security, energy-efficiency, and workload balancing.
