Aims

Cloud Computing offers scalable computing resources on-demand. Accessible over the Internet, with a pay-as-you-go payment model, cloud has the potential to revolutionise the ways in which computer systems are acquired, deployed and managed.

In order to successfully design and build scalable systems on clouds, a range of knowledge and skills are needed. This module will introduce and examine cloud computing. It will describe the software components from which cloud infrastructure and platforms are constructed. Methods for building scalable cloud applications will be described and explained. Case studies drawn from industrial applications of cloud computing will be used throughout to motivate the exploration of clouds.
