This project is for an undergraduate distributed systems course at University of Technology of Compiègne for the Fall 2012 semester. The goal of the project is to introduce students to cloud computing and through the use of FutureGrid, provide them the opportunity to learn about virtualized computing resources and OpenStack. The students will use FutureGrid to master the tools and services necessary for the administration of an OpenStack based cloud.

Intellectual Merit

This project is an opportunity for students to have hands-on exercises that will support their cloud computing courses. This will enables them to better understand the courses that they will be learning.

Broader Impacts

Thanks to FutureGrid, the students will have a greater understanding of cloud computing and OpenStack

Scale of Use

Few VMs for two or three experiments per week
