About Workshop

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the Internet. Cloud services allow individuals and businesses to use software and hardware that are managed by third parties at remote locations. Cloud computing provides a shared pool of resources, including data storage space, networks, computer processing power, and specialized corporate and user applications. Aneka plays the role of Application Platform as a Service for Cloud Computing. Aneka supports various programming models involving Task Programming, Thread Programming and MapReduce Programming and tools for rapid creation of applications and their seamless deployment on private or public Clouds to distribute applications.  Hands-on-experience for workshop participants will be offered using Aneka-based Cloud Environment in our department created as part of the TEQIP-II program.

GPU-accelerated computing is the use of a graphics processing unit (GPU) together with a CPU to accelerate scientific, analytics, engineering, consumer, and enterprise applications. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is NVIDIA’s program development environment .It allows software developers to use a CUDA-enabled graphics processing unit (GPU) for general purpose processing – an approach known as GPGPU. Our department has conducted workshop on GPU Computing in 2014 with hands-on exercises.
