Overview

As they say, Data is King, and all that data needs to be stored and managed properly. This course explores cloud storage devices, structures, and technologies from a more technical and implementation-specific perspective. A set of cloud storage mechanisms and devices are established, along with in-depth coverage of NoSQL and cloud storage services. In addition, various cloud storage-related design patterns, and the overall information lifecycle management as it applies specifically to cloud-hosted data are introduced.


Intended for

IT Professionals, Cloud Architects, Technical Architects, Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Infrastructure Architects, IT Managers, anyone that is tasked with building and running cloud capability.
