KurzbeschreibungCloud computing hosts a wide variety of online services that we use on a daily basis, including web search, social networks, and video streaming. This course will cover how datacenter hardware, systems software, and application frameworks are designed for the cloud.
LernzielAfter successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1) reason about performance, energy efficiency, and availability tradeoffs in the design of cloud system software, 2) describe how datacenter hardware is organized and explain why it is organized as such, 3) implement cloud applications as well as analyze and optimize their performance.
InhaltIn this course, we study how datacenter hardware, systems software, and applications are designed at large scale for the cloud. The course covers topics including server design, cluster management, large-scale storage systems, serverless computing, data analytics frameworks, and performance analysis.
SkriptLecture slides will be available on the course website.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesUndergraduate courses in 1) computer architecture and 2) operating systems, distributed systems, and/or database systems are strongly recommended.
