Course Description

Cloud computing is an approach to computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service over the private and public infrastructure (i.e. Internet). Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure in the "cloud" that supports them. The concept generally incorporates combinations of infrastructure, platforms and software as services. Implementations could rely on private, public or combination of both types of infrastructure to satisfy the computing needs of the users. Cloud computing services often provide common business applications online that are accessed from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on servers located in the “cloud”. By using this approach to building applications the initial cost of IT infrastructure is reduced significantly and the licensing cost of software could be discounted or avoided.  Computing from anywhere becomes possible by using storage in the cloud increasing reliability and convenience.

This course examines Cloud Computing and the Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) that can support it. The course examines the value of this approach to building services, explains how they can be constructed and demonstrate examples of implementations.
