Cloud Computing and MapReduce

Abstract: In this seminar, you will learn about Cloud Computing, the 5th internet revolution, that made it possible to analyze Big Data by providing elastic resource management to accommodate the application's processing needs. Then, you will be introduced to the MapReduce programming paradigm that allows developing parallelized programs using very simple syntax. Finally, you will develop a simple Hadoop application on Microsoft's Azure Cloud.
