Overview

Cloud Computing was made possible by the availability of virtualization. The ability to make virtualized versions of physical IT assets such as servers, network controllers, storage and more allowed better use and more efficient governance of capacity.

This course provides the technologies, mechanisms, platforms, and practices based upon and associated with contemporary virtualization environments and cloud-based virtualization architectures.


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.
