This course is concerned with resource management on distributed systems including clouds and grids: concepts, techniques, analysis, and performance. Topics of discussion will include:
_ Principles and techniques for management of resources in distributed systems including grids and clouds.
_ Management of: computing and storage resources; service level agreements
_ Techniques for: scheduling; allocation;
_ Dynamic resource provisioning;
_ Techniques for handling heterogeneity.
_ Cyber-physical systems and large data sets: sensor networks & resource management techniques for analysis of large data sets.
Basic concepts will be covered through formal lectures. A more informal discussion will take place for addressing current research issues. The students will work on (up to two/three) assignments that will further their understanding of the subject. Each student will take a deeper investigation of a specific topic and make a class presentation based on the available literature on the topic. The student has to complete a course project that is concerned with a research problem. The course also has an exam. This exam is for evaluation purposes only and will not be returned to the student.
Class Presentation: 15%
Exam (in class): 35%
Prerequisites: Operating systems concepts (SYSC 4001 or equivalent) or Permission of the instructor
