Overview

Cloud computing has passed the hype stage and is now mainstream. While many in IT understand the technology components that enable the cloud, it is the concepts and reasons that are missing. This course provides the overview that explains why the cloud is important, how to approach it and what to do to enable cloud from both a provider and a consumer view. You’ll learn the business needs and the technology enablers that lead to the creation of the cloud as well as the design patterns and approaches necessary to ensure you are building a cloud solution that meets the needs of your employer or your clients.


Intended for

IT Professionals, Technical Architects, Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Infrastructure Architects, anyone that wants to understand more about the cloud.
