Cloud Computing Cell

Cloud Computing Cell has been a part of Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College since Feb 2016. The members are exposed to the latest Cloud Technology that enable them to be market ready thereby increasing their opportunities in placements and research. It provides a platform to the students to compute, manage and deploy the cloud.


Cloud computing is a growing idea in the world of IT, born out of the necessity for computing on the go. It brings the user access to data, applications and storage that are not stored on their computer. For a very simple cloud computing overview, it can be understood as a delivery system that delivers computing the same way a power grid delivers electricity. To the average computer user it offers the advantage of delivering IT without the user having to have an in depth knowledge of the technology.

Additional Information

The Cloud Computing Cell, has successfully installed private cloud using Apache Cloudstack. Cloudstack works on IaaS model of cloud where the services are the complete virtual computers that are able to do the computation as on local machine. In this cell, we are progressing our research by detecting intrusion in cloud at host, network and virtual machine level.
The various technologies on which the members of Cloud Computing Cell works are:

  • CloudStack
  • OpenStack
  • Amazon Web Services
  • DevOps Tools


Since its establishment the lab has been conducting various workshops to guide more and more students. Our latest project was to detect and prevent the DDoS intrusion on the cloud system. The workshops conducted are:

Workshop conducted on- Cloud Essentials & Linux.
