Learning outcomes This course has as main objective the study of computing for the cloud environment, namely the cloud services and programming interfaces and access to the cloud.
It aims to provide students with a broad and integrative perspective of virtualization and cloud computing. At the end of the course the student should be able to systematize a vertical approach to the various virtualization and cloud computing technologies that provide applications and services with greater flexibility, better resource utilization, greater scalability and adaptability, and reduced costs. Students should be able to assess the choices, solutions, and commitments involved in the development, use and management of cloud services and must be able to develop scalable and reliable applications and systems for cloud computing.
Syllabus Perspective on the adoption of cloud computing technologies and services. Concepts, implementation levels and virtualization tools. Cloud computing and service models. Analysis of public cloud platforms. Paradigms of parallel and distributed programming. Emerging cloud software environments.
