In this introductory to intermediate-level, 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
