Large Scale IT and Cloud Computing
Full course description
The course offers a comprehensive introduction to the field of scalable IT systems, so-called "Big IT", and cloud computing. After a technical introduction to the available methodologies of setting up and running scalable systems, use cases are presented. These use cases emphasize the correlation of the processes and requirements of large institutions and possible technical solutions. A special focus is put upon the question which technological platform is best used for which use case as well as process aspects of scaling. Security aspects specific to cloud computing are discussed along the use cases. Cloud computing, as a special case of scalable IT, is discussed in detail. Different cloud providers are presented and evaluated in the context of university requirements, i.e. requirements posed by research and teaching processes.
This is an optional course: Third year students choose three electives per period out of the optional courses during period 1 and 2.
