This half-day Technology Primer introduces the audience to the concepts of Cloud Computing and Virtualization. Cloud Computing is generally characterized by its Service Model types. The course first introduces the audience to the idea of Virtualization, Virtual Machines, Hypervisors and Containers. These are the first building blocks of Cloud Computing. Then the course introduces the audience to second set of building blocks of Cloud Computing - the Cloud Computing Service Models - and presents a high level comparison of the three primary Service Models and where they may fit into a wireless networking environment. The final building block introduces the audience to OpenStack and wraps up the discussion with a simple example of Cloud Computing implemented using OpenStack.

A high-level technical overview to personnel involved in product management, marketing, planning, design, engineering, and operations.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Describe Virtualization
• Describe Virtual Machines
• List the role and tasks of a Hypervisor
• Describe Containers
• Describe Cloud Computing
• Explain Cloud Computing in the context of a Wireless Network
• Describe OpenStack
