Course: Spring 2012 B534 Distributed systems Graduate Course
CSCI-B534 is a course for young computer scientists working in the field of software and systems. It is offered to a class of 52 students (PhD, Masters) and two AIs covering core Computer Science distributed systems curricula (http://salsahpc.indiana.edu/csci-b534-spring-2012/). 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.
Use of FutureSystems
