Coursework: “Research on Linux and Windows Operating Systems commands and their applications in Cloud computing Platforms”
Assessment Due Date: 11th January 2021
This Research is on “Linux and Windows Operating Systems commands and their applications in Azure and AWS Cloud computing Platforms”.
1.0 Course Work and Assessment:
This course work constitutes of 25% of the overall module assessment. The assignment must be carried out as individual or a group of max of 2 students in a group. Each student must conduct a literature review on modern Operating Systems commands and their application in the implementation of cloud platforms.
Note, please follow the step below to do your work:
Task 1 – Operating Systems
The first part of the course work is to conduct research work on any modern Linux and Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. You are required to critically analyse some new design features in these two Operating Systems.
Then select 10 Commands Line Interface (CLI) commands and illustrate how they are used in Linux and Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. Take screen shots and document the work carried out.
Task 2 – Cloud computing platforms
The second part of the course work is to critically compare Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud computing platforms. Then select 5 of the Commands Line Interface (CLI) commands and demonstrate how they are implemented in Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud.
Task 3 – Evaluation (Individual)
Write a reflective evaluation on the commands selected and used in the course work and justify why these commands were chosen. Briefly explain your findings on how these commands are used in modern operating systems. Discuss how you demonstrated your implementation in Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud platforms.
Task 4 – Conclusion (Individual)
Write a conclusion, which summaries the work done.
Note the following:
- Your evaluation and conclusion must be supported by literature review, with citations and
- The work must have references with in-text citations using Harvard Referencing
- Attached are some operating system commands, which will help you to carry out the tasks listed above.
- The pass mark for course work is 50% and students must gain it to
The written report for the course work and the practical work must be submitted online on or before 11th January 2021.
Your work must be submitted on 11th January 2021, using the submission link available on Moodle.
3.0 Documentation guidelines and other requirements;
The Report must include the following
- Brief overview of the Linux and Windows Operating Systems.
- Selection and demonstration of 10 commands for your course
- Critical comparison of Azure and AWS cloud computing platforms
- Demonstration of how commands are implemented in Azure and AWS.
- Reflective evaluation of the use of commands in Operating Systems and Cloud computing
- Appendices (include screen shots, test results )
You should include all the assumptions you have made while undertaking the tasks together. Your work must have an assignment header sheet and make sure that your student ID numbers are clearly legible.
4.0 Assessment Criteria
- A high level of understanding of the subject must be demonstrated;
- Demonstrate a wide and thorough understanding of the Operating System Commands and their use in Cloud computing.
- a high level of analytical ability;
- An ability to analyse concepts and apply them in
5.0 ASSESSMENT FEEDBACK
- Feedback on your assessment will be available in four working weeks from the submission
- The Feedback details will be on Moodle.
6.0 Rules and PLAGIARISM:
- The report must not exceed 2000 +/- 10% words; diagrams will not be included in the word
- All materials must be original in the sense that you prepared
- At least 25% of the work must demonstrate your views in the form of discussion, evaluation and
- All sources must be Failure to state the source of any part will be penalised according to the University’s regulations.
- There should be a full reference list at the end of the
The University defines an assessment offence as any action(s) or behaviour likely to confer an unfair advantage in assessment, whether by advantaging the alleged offender or disadvantaging (deliberately or unconsciously) another or others. A number of examples are set out in the Regulations and these include: “D.5.7.1 (e) the submission of material (written, visual or oral), originally produced by another person or persons, without due acknowledgement, so that the work could be assumed the student’s own.
For the purposes of these Regulations, this includes incorporation of significant extracts or elements taken from the work of (an) other(s), without acknowledgement or reference, and the submission of work produced in collaboration for an assignment based on the assessment of individual work. (Such offences are typically described as plagiarism and collusion.)”. The University’s Assessment Offences Regulations can be found on our web site. Also, information about plagiarism can be found on the programme’s handbook.
