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 file systems, virtualization, cloud security and privacy, Amazon Web Services, Google App Engine and interactive web applications. Students are expected to read extra materials including papers and online resources, finish a number of mini projects, and take the final exam. Participation in the class discussion is strongly encouraged. Guest speakers might be invited for some particular topics.
