General description The main objective of this subject is to introduce the student to a new paradigm of distributed computing, Cloud Computing (Cloud Computing), and provide an overview of its possibilities for use in the business world. Cloud Computing systems allow an organization's computing resources to be outsourced to a third-party provider, allowing fast, transparent, secure and cheap provisioning and release of these resources through the Internet. This flexibility in computer management, together with the pay-per-use model available in public clouds, allow companies to rapidly deploy computer applications on systems that adapt their resources efficiently based on the natural life cycle of the business, with the consequent cost savings and productivity improvements. However, its use also represents an important challenge for companies, which must know the advantages and disadvantages of this technology before deciding to opt for its adoption, since this implies significant changes that affect their business model. On the other hand, the virtualization-based technologies used in public clouds can also be applied in the private computing centers of companies to achieve more efficient management, adding many of the features that public clouds provide while the Sensitive information remains under the control of the organization. Through the activities planned in this subject, the student will know the basic concepts and problems associated with Cloud Computing from a business point of view, they will be provided with information on success stories in their use in business environments and, to get a good understanding of technology , will carry out practices on public Clouds, deploying and using virtualized infrastructures and platforms and executing distributed applications developed applying a new programming model: the Map / Reduce model, a model that is supported by the main Cloud service providers.
Contingency plan 1. Modifications to the contents - No changes will be made. 2. Methodologies *Teaching methodologies that are maintained - All. 3. Mechanisms for personalized attention to students - Email: Daily. Of use to make consultations, request virtual meetings to resolve doubts and follow up on supervised work. - Moodle: According to the needs of the students. They have "thematic forums associated with the modules" of the subject, to formulate the necessary queries. There are also “specific activity forums” to develop the “Directed Discussions”, through which the development of theoretical content of the subject is put into practice. – Teams: 1 weekly session in a large group for the advancement of the theoretical contents and the tutored works in the time slot assigned to the subject in the faculty class calendar. From 1 to 2 weekly sessions (or more as the students demand) in a small group (up to 6 people), for follow-up and support in carrying out the "supervised work". This dynamic allows for standardized monitoring adjusted to the learning needs of the students to carry out the work of the subject. 4. Modifications in the evaluation - No changes will be made. 5. Modifications to the bibliography or webgraphy - No changes will be made.
