INET 3102

About This Course

INET 3102 begins with an outline of the trajectory from traditional web-based systems and components toward cloud-based infrastructure deployments. Topics include resource requirements for a web-based system, service offerings (compute, storage, queuing), deployment models, and platforms (AWS, Google Apps, and others) along with deployment models accounting for security, compliance, and risk-related issues.

At completion, students will be able to identify, analyze, and combine the major service components of a web-based application, among them: Service protocols: HTTP and web services; Compute as a service (on-demand CPU through virtualization); Storage as a service: storage models and usage; Security as a service: compliance overlap, resource planes, federation, and the human element; Metrics as a service: how are my systems doing?; Cost models for a service-based architecture; Queuing and e-mail as services; Caching.
