About This Activity

Cloud computing allows us to create and share information anywhere in the world in seconds, which has revolutionized our relationships with data, money and each other. In this course, students will learn how cloud computing works, and how to take advantage of huge data centres to share data, communicate, collaborate and generate new information. Participants will create their own websites on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) or on the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering’s own cloud platform, SAVI, using it as a platform for advanced cloud applications. They will delve into the low-level protocols that drive the world wide web, building cables and wiring hardware together to create our class’ own private network. They will learn about high-performance computing by using Canada’s fastest supercomputer, as well as one of Canada’s largest computer networks (ORION), and visit this impressive facility at the end of the course. Students will use what they have learned in class to complete a final project of their choice.
