Abstract
This is for a Cloud Computing Class, where students can realize what is Cloud Computing in real. In the first part of the course, they will explore Eucalyptus/Nimbus/OpenStack in order to understand the "basic steps" for each cloud computing platform. In the second part of the course, they will set up a Hadoop cluster and try out various scheduling strategies.
Use of FutureSystems
We will use FutureGrid as a testbed to start-up/shut-down instances with various services and set up a Hadoop cluster. Further, we would like to install Spark.
Scale of Use
The resources involved in our class are few physical machines (less than 50). The class is serving 16 students.
