This course has been organized by IIT Kharagpur while keeping in mind the value of Cloud Computing to all. Cloud computing is a scalable services consumption and delivery platform that provides on-demand computing services for a shared pool of resources, namely, storage, servers, software, networking, database, applications, etc. over the Internet. It is a model that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources.
This course will introduce aspects of cloud computing, including management issues, fundamentals, future research trends, and security challenges, according to IIT Kharagpur. Both UG and PG students as well as researchers will be helped by this to use and explore the cloud computing platforms.
