GUJARAT TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY
COMPUTER ENGINEERING CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE AND SERVICES SUBJECT CODE: 2180712 B.E. 8th SEMESTER
Type of course: Bachelor of Engineering
Rationale: The course presents a top-down view of cloud computing, from applications and administration to programming, infrastructure, billing and security. The topics include: overview of cloud computing, cloud systems, Load balancing in AWS, distributed storage systems, virtualization, security in AWS, and management services and Billing. Students will study state-of-the-art solutions for cloud computing developed by Amazon. Students will also apply what they learn in one programming assignments and one project executed over Amazon Web Services.

After learning the course, the student will be able:
- To explain the core concepts of the cloud computing paradigm: how and why this paradigm shift came about, the characteristics, advantages and challenges brought about by the various models and services in cloud computing.
- To apply the fundamental concepts in datacenters to understand the tradeoffs in power, efficiency and cost by Load balancing approach.
- To discuss system virtualization and outline its role in enabling the cloud computing system model.
- To illustrate the fundamental concepts of cloud storage and demonstrate their use in storage systems such as Amazon S3 and HDFS.
- To analyze various cloud programming models and apply them to solve problems on the cloud.
- To understand various management and other distinguish services of AWS.
- To analyze the billing of resources and other paradigm: how to deal with disasters.
- To understand security and compliances for AWS.
- To deploy applications over commercial cloud computing infrastructures such as Amazon
List of Assignments / Experiments:
- Write pros and cons of Cloud Computing.
- Summarize Cloud service models with real time examples.
- Define Virtualization. Also list and explain different Hypervisors.
- Discuss performance evaluation of service over cloud.
- Software study on Hadoop, MapReduce and HDFS.
- Create an AMI for Hadoop and implementing short Hadoop programs on the Amazon Web Services platform.
- Create a scenario that use Amazon S3 as storage on cloud.
Design based Problems (DP)/Open Ended Problem:
- Students will choose their project topic and work in teams of three or four to design, implement, and evaluate cloud applications using Hadoop on the Amazon Web Services platform.
- Students will present, in groups of three or two, one research paper during the semester. These papers cover very recent developments in cloud computing. The presentations (using power point slides) will take place in class, and evaluation will be done based on active participation in discussions.
Computer system with latest hardware, High speed internet access, Java Environment with IDE (Eclipse or NetBeans), AWS Subscription

- CloudSim 3.0.3
ACTIVE LEARNING ASSIGNMENTS: Preparation of power-point slides: which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work. The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus can be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
