Overview

Cloud Capacity Management is just as important as capacity management for your current on-premise infrastructure. Whether you are creating a Private Cloud for your organisation or tasked with moving your organisation to a Public or Hybrid Cloud, Capacity Management is one of the major contributors to the business case and future financial viability of the solution. 

In this course, you will learn the techniques, approaches and the design patterns that can be used to calculate, measure and control the capacity of your cloud solution.


Intended for

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