About this Course:
Computing applications hosted on dynamically-scaled virtual resources available as services are considered. Collaborative and non-collaborative "cloud-resident" applications are analyzed with respect to cost, device/location independence, scalability, reliability, security, and sustainability. Commercial and local cloud architectures are examined. A group-based integration of course topics will result in a project employing various cloud computing technologies.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Understand the fundamentals of Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Metal as a Service
- Apply elastic and utility computing in application design
- Apply elastic and utility architecture for applications
