Nowadays, a huge variety of internet services are being used everywhere: On your smartphone, your laptop and an increasing number of home appliances. Therefore, today's service and IT infrastructure providers have to meet higher user requirements than ever. Outages inflict huge financial and reputational damage on IT companies. Engineers working on solutions for questions like "Do all my services run as planned?", "How can my services be improved?", or "How can my services be made simpler to use for customers?" continuously drive the innovations in this area.

In this seminar we will follow up on these questions in the area of operating complex IT-Systems by consulting selected research papers and recent textbooks including but not limited to current hot topics such as:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Virtualized Infrastructures
  • Management of Large Scale Computing Clusters
  • Big Data Analysis and Visualization
  • Internet of Things 
  • Quality of Service
  • Fault Tolerance
  • Self-x and AIOps
  • as well as related and emerging challenges regarding the design of Distributed Systems 

Although there is no guarantee for acceptance, students may propose own topics covering the mentioned or related areas. Please note that we will publish a list of available topics separately.
