Abstract

Spring 2016 CSCI-B649 Cloud Computing is a course for young computer scientists working in the field of software and systems. It is offered to a class of up to 90 residential graduate students, and up to 30 online students and 4 AIs covering core Computer Science distributed systems curricula (http://salsahpc.indiana.edu/csci-b649-spring-2016/, http://cloudmooc.appspot.com/home). Cloud computing form a rapidly changing field of Distributed systems in computer science. We study the evolutional changes in computing landscape characterized by parallel, distributed, and cloud computing systems. We use FutureSystems 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.

 
 
 

Intellectual Merit

The course covers all aspects of the cloud architecture stack, from Software as a Service (large-scale biology and graphics applications), Platform as a Service (MapReduce (Hadoop), Iterative MapReduce (Twister) and NoSQL (HBase)), to Infrastructure as a Service (low-level virtualization technologies).

Broader Impacts

The curricula and tutorials can be re-used in other cloud computing/distributed system educational activities

Scale of Use

4 vCPUS (4vms) per student group, with up to 65 groups.
