Course: Fresno System Architecture and Cloud Computing Class


The project provides computing environments for students in class CS146 and CS148 to learn system programming and Cloud computing.

Intellectual Merit

Integrate research activities and advanced technology into the teaching of computer science courses at undergraduate and graduate levels.

Broader Impact

Students can acquire in-depth understanding on Unix/Linux operating system programming, distributed computing and have hand-on experiences on Cloud computing.
Graduate students are able to have chances to perform their research using the high-end computing environments.
Advanced technologies will attract more students in choosing the profession of computing in the future.

Use of FutureGrid

students will use the computing environments to run and debug their programs remotely and get hand-on experiences on Cloud computing.

Scale Of Use

10 VMs should be sufficient for the project. More VMs may be requested if necessary.
