Cloud Computing Training

Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of your computer’s hard drive.

In fact you could just think of the cloud as a metaphor for the internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the internet as nothing but a puffy cloud, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.

Cloud computing gives you access to servers, storage, databases, and a broad set of application services over the internet. A cloud services provider owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.

The cloud also makes it easy and fast to access a broad range such as compute, storage, databases, analytics, machine learning and many other services. In other words, this is the benefit of agility. Companies can quickly develop and roll out new applications. Teams find it easier to innovate and experiment faster and more often.

The cloud allows you to innovate faster because you can focus your valuable IT resources on developing applications that differentiate your business and transform customer experiences rather than managing infrastructure and data centers. With the cloud, you can quickly spin up resources as you need them, deploying hundreds or even thousands of servers in minutes.

What many people (and their organizations) fail to realize is that not all clouds are the same. This means there is no one type of cloud computing that’s right for everyone. Over the years several different models, types and cloud services have developed to serve varying needs.

There are three different ways to deploy cloud services:

  1. Public Clouds – These are owned and operated by third-party cloud service providers who deliver their storage and servers via the internet. The cloud provider owns and manages all hardware, software and other infrastructure.
  2. Private Clouds – This is a cloud computing resource used exclusively by one organization or business owner. It’s not unusual for a private cloud to be located at a company’s  brick and mortar data center where services and infrastructure are maintained on a private network.
  3. Hybrid Clouds – As you might expect, hybrid clouds are a combination public and private with data and applications shared between them. The benefits of a hybrid cloud include giving a business more flexibility, more deployment options and optimizing compliance, security and existing infrastructure.

Cloud computing is a technology well suited for planetary deployment. Cloud computing allows organizations to easily use an application in multiple physical locations around the world with just a few clicks.

This characteristic is extremely beneficial in today’s business climate because companies can provide a lower latency and better experience for customers simply and at minimal cost.

Cloud Computing Training Course by Tonex

In this introduction to Cloud Computing Training course, you will gain a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts and architecture of cloud computing and of the design and deployment of a cloud computing platform.

According to the definition of cloud computing from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), IT services that are delivered as cloud services offer:

  • A pay-as-you-go model with minimal or no initial costs
  • Usage-based pricing, so that costs are based on actual usage
  • Elasticity, so that users can dynamically consume more or less resources
  • Location independence, high availability, and fault tolerance
  • Ubiquitous access to services, where users can access services from any location using any form factor

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in learning cloud computing technologies.
