Content

Cloud computing offers a new model for the delivery of IT services to end users by introducing the ability to deliver infrastructure, platforms, and software via the network.  This unit explores the technologies, models, benefits and risks of cloud computing.  Technologies that will be examined as part of our studies of cloud computing include virtualisation, cloud management systems, storage systems, networking technologies, and public cloud options offered by commercial organisations.  Upon completion of the unit students will have a clear understanding of cloud computing, the technologies used in provisioning clouds, the application of cloud computing to solve problems, and the issues that must be considered when deploying cloud technologies in an organisation.
