Course Syllabus


Cloud Computing is a technology that allows to use the resources of large number of com-puters connected through a real-time communication network. By using cloud computing, you can gain access at any time through any device, via the Internet, to data and files which you have uploaded, or to software applications which you need to use for personal or professional use. Cloud сomputing being used more and more in business today and it is very important for any professional to understand what it is all about. This course defines Cloud Computing and establishes a strong working knowledge of the concepts and technologies needed to work effectively with the cloud. The course allows to understand what cloud computing is and how it works. It describes the benefits of cloud computing along with its potential drawbacks. The course enables to determine which сloud is appropriate from a business and technical perspective, to select appropriate сloud providers and to plan and implement a сloud adoption strategy. Formation of the theoretical knowledge and practical skills in practical realization of the benefits of cloud computing in today's business, learning the tools of the technology. The course covers technologies required to build classic (traditional), virtualized, and cloud data center environments. These technologies include compute, storage, networking, desktop and application virtualization.
