Cloud Computing and IoT Solutions KIT723

Introduction

The aim of this unit is to provide students with the foundation knowledge and understanding of Cloud computing systems and IoT. This unit will equip students with essential knowledge that is needed for building next-generation applications that are scalable and efficient and can process IoT data.

Key topics that will be covered: (fundamentals) parallel systems: parallel paradigms, parallel and distributed algorithms, and building parallel applications using MPI; (IoT) Stream Computing platforms and Algorithms; and (Cloud computing) Cloud technologies, virtualization, programming model, resource management and scheduling, application building for managing and analyzing data. The unit will also explain how the business models of enterprises are changing with these forms of computing that provide large storage and computation space without purchasing expensive computer systems.
