Course: Cloud computing class
In this class we will discuss about cloud computing and we will have experience with the most important cloud solutions (eucalyptus, nimbus, openebula). The students will be involved in a project where it is proposed to implement an easy service (like a web server) and to monitor its response time. A very simple scheduler, considering the response time, will decide where/when switch on/off virtual machines.
Use of FutureSystems
Future grid will help us to use different cloud middleware solutions and to practice with the real problem concerning "provide services over a cloud".
Scale of Use
The class should be quite small. I aspect no more than 20 students, so the resouces involved in our class should be just few VMs (no more than 2 for each student).
