About this courseSkip About this course
Recent years have witnessed the rapid increase of the penetration of AI technology into different areas in the industry. Big data systems, the foundation that enables today’s data-driven AI, are thus becoming critically important. This course is dedicated to lead students into the basic concepts of big data systems, covering how data is effectively stored, processed and analyzed. We start from the general principles in the design of distributed systems; then we provide frameworks on how storage, computation, and network capabilities are scaled in big data systems; finally, to make such design principles easy to follow, our case studies use real industrial systems to demonstrate how the basic design principles are applied in real-world systems as well as how their performance and limitation are analyzed.

While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
