IT 2313 - Cloud Services (3) SP

Cloud Computing has transformed the IT industry by opening the possibility for highly elastic scalability in the delivery of enterpriseapplications and software as a service (SaaS). Amazon Elastic Cloud, Microsoft’s Azure, Google App Engine, and many other Cloud offerings give mature software vendors and new start-ups the option to deploy their applications to systems of large computational power with no initial capital investment and modest operating costs proportional to the actual use. The course examines the important APIs used in the Amazon and Microsoft Cloud, including the techniques for building, deploying, and maintaining machine images and applications. We will learn how to use cloud as the infrastructure for existing and new services. Other topics covered include load balancing, caching, distributed transactions, identity & authorization management and the Linux operating system.
