This project is done as part of the course EE657 taught at University of Southern California between Aug. 21, 2012 and Dec. 15, 2012. The class is offered to graduate students. The goal of this project is to introduce the students to cloud computing and internet of things. This is achieved by a project that compares a well known word count application on Hadoop using Eucalptus, Nimbus, and at least one other Clod Framework such as OpenStack, OpenNebula, or Sector/Sphere. The link to the class web site and its curriculum is http://web-app.usc.edu/soc/20123/ee.
