This is an introductory course to cloud computing. In this course, we will explore a few aspects of cloud computing: distributed data crunching with MapReduce, cloud and datacenter filesystems, virtualization, cloud security&privacy, Amazon Web Services, and interactive web-based applications. Students are expected to read extra materials including papers and online resources, finish several mini projects, and take the final exam. Participation in the class discussion is strongly encouraged. Guest speakers might be invited for some particular topics. (3 Hours Lecture + 1 Hour lab).
