Distributed Computing systems aim at making the distributed nature of applications running on physically distributed computing resources transparent. Cloud computing augments this idea by providing a transparent virtualization of application services implemented as a Distributed System. This directed studies course is addressing some of the fundamental questions related to the design, implementation and use of such systems.
Directed Studies Course - weekly reading assignments that will be presented by participants and discussed during the lectures.
