Objectives To understand the main technological characteristics, challenges and trends of Cloud Computing in terms of architecture,  resource allocation and energetic optimization. This course concludes on the energy limitations of mobile handsets that will impose in the next ten years an evolution towards Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), MEC being  a natural extension of the Cloud Computing basic concepts.

Programme to be followed Virtual Machine and hypervisor, datacenter architecture, VM migration, energy aspects, dynamic resource allocation, datacenter interconnection, optical switching techniques for the backplane of a datacenter, pricing strategies, emergence of Mobile Edge Computing for next-generation radio mobile networks (namely 5G radio-mobile networks).
Prerequisites Basic knowledge in networking, computer architecture, optimization, radio mobile networks
Course exam Written exam made of a  quizz and  a problem
