代写COMP90024 代做留学生Matlab实验作业

COMP90024 Cluster and Cloud Computing, 2016  
 
Question 1:  
A) Cloud computing does not solve the fundamental challenges associated with large-scale distributed 
systems. Discuss. [8] 
B) How has the evolution of service-oriented architectures supported Cloud computing? [2] 
 
Question 2: 
A) Define Gustafson-Barsis’ law for scaled speed-up of parallel programs. [2] 
B) A parallel program takes 120 seconds to run on 8 processors. The total time spent in the sequential 
part of the program is 12 seconds. What is the scaled speedup? [2] 
C) According to Gustafson-Barsis’ law, how much faster could the application theoretically run if it ran 
across all 8 processors compared to running on a single processor? [2] 
D) Why is theoretically italicized in the above? [4] 
 
Question 3: 
A) Big data is often associated with data having a range of properties including high volume, high 
velocity and high variety (heterogeneity). Discuss the advantages, disadvantages and suitability more 
generally of the following data solutions with regards to these big data properties: 
a. CouchDB [3] 
b. Apache Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) [3] 
c. Apache Spark [3] 
Your answer should include the way in which these solutions implement MapReduce. 
What other data properties can be associated with big data challenges? [1] 
Question 4: 
A) Representational State Transfer (ReST) based web services are often used for creating Resource- 
oriented Architectures (ROA) whilst Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)-based web services are 
often used to implement Service-oriented Architectures (SOA). Discuss the similarities and 
differences between a ROA and a SOA. [3] 
B) Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ReST vs SOAP for web services more generally. [5] 
C) HTTP methods can be safe or idempotent. What is meant by the italicized terms, and give an 
example of each? [2] 
 
Question 5: 
A) Popek and Goldberg laid down the foundations for computer virtualization in their 1974 paper, 
Formal Requirements for Third Generation Architectures. 
a. Identify and explain the different types of classification of instruction sets for virtualization 
to occur according to the theorem of Popek and Goldberg. You should include the 
relationships between the instruction sets. [3] 
b. Describe how these principles are realized by modern virtual machine monitors/hypervisors. 
[2] 
c. Explain the differences between full virtualization and para-virtualisation. Give an example 
of a hypervisor that uses full virtualization and an example of a hypervisor that uses para- 
virtualisation. [2] 
d. Describe the role of a virtual machine manager/hypervisor with regards to memory 
management and shadow page tables. [3]

Question 6: 
A) Explain what is meant by the following security terms: 
• single sign-on [1] 
• federated authentication [1] 
• authorization [1] 
• certification authority [1] 
• identity provider [1] 
B) Discuss the challenges in supporting finer-grained security in hybrid Cloud environments. You may 
refer to the importance and/or role of (some of) the terms in part A) of this question. [5] 
 
Question 7: 
A) The NeCTAR Research Cloud is based on the openStack technology. 
a. Describe the role and features of the following openStack components: 
i. Nova [1] 
ii. Swift [1] 
iii. Glance [1] 
iv. Keystone [1] 
b. Describe the interplay between these components that allows a researcher to create an 
instance of a virtual machine through a pre-existing snapshot. [3] 
B) The NeCTAR Research Cloud has multiple availability zones. 
a. What is meant by the term: availability zone? [1] 
b. What are the implications of availability zones with regards to virtual machine instance 
creation and data volumes offered by NeCTAR? [2]
