Course description

The discipline “Economics of Cloud Computing” is an integral part of the cycle of computer disciplines needed by analysts who, using modern computer and telecommunications technologies, collect, accumulate, process and analyze data.

Cloud technologies are distributed digital data processing technologies that provide computer resources to an Internet user as an online service.

The advantage of the technology is that the user has access to their own data, but does not have to worry about the infrastructure, operating system and software with which it works. The word “cloud” is a metaphor that embodies a complex infrastructure that hides all the technical details.

To manage heterogeneous computing resources remotely requires software solutions for the implementation of virtualization systems, as well as remote service functions, which generally creates opportunities for the organization and application of cloud computing technologies.

The subject of the discipline

The subject of the discipline is the principles and standards of technology and the development of solutions based on cloud computing.

 The purpose and objectives of the discipline

The purpose of the discipline is to acquaint students with the basic concepts of modern software and cloud technologies, acquisition of abilities (competencies) to effectively implement theoretical knowledge in everyday life and in their practical and professional activities, formation of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the use of distributed technologies. computing, virtualization of server systems, formation of students’ knowledge in the field of resource management technologies of remote distributed systems; formation of students’ ability to independently study the topics of the discipline and solve typical problems using cloud technologies.

The main tasks : formation of students’ competence in the use of standards and technologies to attract and use distributed computer resources provided on request, for research and use of the computing environment of organizations from the level of startups to corporations. Students should gain competencies in choosing the architecture and construction of private and hybrid cloud computing systems, installing and configuring special software to work in a cloud system environment.

The place of the discipline in the structural and logical scheme

The discipline “Economics of Cloud Computing” is interrelated with such disciplines as “Information and Communication Technologies”, “Introduction to the specialty”, “Computer Networks”, “Business Process Automation”, “Internet Technologies” and others.

Requirements for knowledge and skills

As a result of studying the discipline, students must:

a) know:

  • server technologies for creating web applications;
  • principles of operation and technology of virtualization of server systems, architecture and standards of communication means of distributed computing, features of software and hardware solutions of modern data centers;
  • terminology and classification of cloud computing at the level of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS systems and technologies, features and characteristics of conventional web resource hosting, rental of virtual private machines and cloud computing systems;
  • the current state of development of cloud computing technologies;
  • software solutions for server systems of virtualization and complex solutions that are able to form a private cloud environment of the enterprise or corporation;
  • basic scenarios of application of cloud computing technologies, features of software development for work as a part of distributed computing systems and complexes;

b) be able to :

  • analyze and choose the best solutions for cloud computing technologies in the direction of their application for research, as well as to create a single computing environment at the level of organization, enterprise or individual entrepreneur;
  • deploy a fleet of virtual private servers and configure cloud server software;
  • solve problems of scalability, design and operation of distributed information systems, products, information technology services;
  • apply basic knowledge of standards in the field of information technology during the development and implementation of distributed computing systems based on cloud technologies and services;
  • design software components to work as services as part of distributed computing systems and complexes and cloud computing.
