Topic - Cloud Computing with Big Data 
Big Data and Cloud Computing 
This workshop exposes students to both the theory and practice of cloud computing. The learning objectives include understanding of key principles of cloud computing concepts, models, technologies and its application for big data. For projects, students will learn to develop web-based big data cloud applications.  

Topics include:

  • principles of cloud computing
  • key business drivers
  • basic concepts and terminology
  • technical and non-technical challenges; fundamental concepts and models
  • reference architecture
  • cloud deployment models; technologies behind cloud computing
  • main components in a datacenter
  • virtualization
  • multitenancy; cloud architecture
  • how to operate/manage resources to meet certain objectives
  • cloud bursting; cloud applications and paradigms
  • challenges in developing applications
  • application development models – IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)
  • PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service)
  • MapReduce programming model.  

Cloud-based Big Data Projects - The learning outcome 
To design a big data application and to develop its implementation on a public cloud. A hackathon-like approach will be adopted to allow students to suggest ideas and form teams based on individual interests and skills. Two 3-hr lectures cover programming PaaS and SaaS IBM cloud services and pattern-based approach to design and implement big data applications. Students learn by examples with hands-on laboratories. For data, students will tap on the rich Singapore Smart Nation Open Government Data repositories. 

Knowledge of programming is compulsory; web programming experience will be useful.
