A defining characteristic of the information age is our reliance on vast, complex, and intertwined information technology (IT) plants—consisting of a variety of computing, communication, and storage systems as well as software components. Understanding and modeling operational characteristics (e.g., scalability, performance, availability and reliability) of such plants involve monitoring, integrating, and analyzing large volumes of data from distributed and heterogeneous sources; solutions often integrate concepts from data streaming algorithms, databases and data warehouses, statistical and machine learning, control systems, as well as distributed systems and networks. The course will cover this spectrum of areas as well as the theory and practice of designing such data-intensive computing systems.
