Currently, most of the business run on cloud infrastructure directly or indirectly. The main objective of this course is for participants to understand its principles. This course will introduce foundational cloud computing concepts. Basic overview of cloud, cloud vs traditional infrastructure models, different cloud deployment and delivery models, advantages and disadvantages of cloud when considering adoption and some examples. We will cover some popular Software as a service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) applications with hands-on activities in this course.
This course is part of Professional Certificate in Cloud Computing Foundations.
At the end of the course, participants will able to:
• Know about cloud computing, its history, and evolution
• Understand the difference between cloud and traditional infrastructure models
• Learn the different cloud deployment and delivery models
• Understand the advantages and disadvantages of cloud
• Gain hands-on knowledge on some sample SaaS and PaaS solutions in the public cloud
