Cloud Computing Cell has been a part of Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College since February 2016. The members are exposed to the latest Cloud Technologies 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. The Cell is coordinated by Dr. J. K. Seth, Dr. Anupama Sharma and Dr. Parneet Kaur, faculty members, IT department.
Cloud computing is a growing computing technology that provides almost unlimited computing resources on demand. It connects a number of other technologies like IoT, Big Data, Fog etc. The users of cloud can access data, applications and storage etc. with least management of local environment. It can be understood as a delivery system that delivers computing in the same way as a power grid delivers electricity. The Cloud Computing Cell, has successfully installed private cloud using Apache Cloudstack. Cloudstack works on the IaaS model of cloud where the services are the complete virtual computers that are able to do the computation as on local machine.

The cell helps students to boost their learning about latest technological trends. The cell is also promoting research work and projects in the field of cloud computing and related technologies.
The cell conducts a series of activities every year few of them are mentioned here.
The Cloud Computing Cell has conducted a workshop from 28th to 29th April 2022 titled as “CloudSplore” . The workshop was conducted under the guidance of Dr. Parneet Kaur and Dr. Abhilasha Singh (Coordinators Cloud Cell).
The Cloud Computing cell has been in successful execution for more than 6 years and has bookmarked itself as the one of the prestigious technical societies of AKGEC, IT Department. In order to continue the trends of the effective learning and capturing intelligent minds to serve the college in even bigger and better way, it is necessary to organize events which help students to gain extra knowledge and sharpen their technical skills. Thus, in this series another workshop ‘Cloudsplore’ was conducted by the cell on 28th and 29th April 2022. This event was open to all first- and second-year students, 140 students were registered for this Workshop.
The workshop was carried out in following manner:
1) Round 1: This Round was conducted in 2 days in which we explained the cloud and its application along with Hands-On-Experience on Virtual Machine creation on AWS and GitHub to all the participants. This round was held at Web technology lab, IT lab 1 and IT lab 2 on 28th and 29th April at 4 PM.
2) Round 2: This Round was consisted of quiz based on cloud and it`s services such as Virtual Machine creation and GitHub questions which was self-paced to access the basic technical and IQ of the students. The students were shortlisted on the basis of their marks for this round. This round was held online at D2C Platform on 30th April 2022 at 7:00 PM.
The top three winners of the event were awarded with the cash prizes:
|Atul Kumar||IT||1st Year||1st|
|Archas Srivastava||CS||1st Year||2nd|
|Malika Garg||CS||1st Year||3rd|
Finally, everyone present in the workshop appreciated the sessions and desired more sessions to be held which must focus primarily on Cloud Computing and its latest trends and technologies. Some of the main pics of the event are as follows:
Cloud Computing Cell conducted a 9-hour interactive workshop Erudition’20 on AWS, GitHub, Raspberry Pi, version control system and other trending topics on IOT. The event included hands on project for deploying home based Personal Cloud Storage. A Raspberry Pi kit worth ₹ 3000 is rewarded to the top performing student in the event.
