Enterprise and Cloud Computing introduces cloud computing concepts from an industry-centric and vendor-neutral point of view. Service delivery models, enabling technologies and mechanisms, cloud architectures, cloud security, privacy issues, virtualisation, quality, metrics, multimedia cloud, case studies, and current technologies for working with clouds will be studied. Non-technical aspects, such as service-level agreements (SLAs), community vs proprietary models, and principles of cloud management will also be studied.

Students will have hands-on experience using computing, networking, storage, and database services provided by some of the top cloud providers worldwide, as well as hands-on experience with the deployment and management of cloud services.

This unit is co-taught with the undergraduate version of the unit, 9281 Enterprise and Cloud Computing.
