Course Description

Explore fundamental cloud computing concepts such as cloud service models, hosting options, and security considerations, among other topics covered in this 14-video course. Begin by examining cloud benefits, components, and service models; the differences between cloud computing roles such as cloud service customer, cloud service architect, and cloud auditor, and learn the differences between on-premises and cloud implementations. This leads to an overview of the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud service model; the SaaS (Software as a Service) cloud service model, and what needs to be considered when using the PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) cloud service model. Next, take a look at benefits and potential pitfalls for private cloud implementation; advantages and disadvantages of using a public cloud; benefits of using a hybrid cloud solution, and benefits and potential pitfalls of using a community cloud. Learners will examine the potential risks and benefits of migrating to the cloud, and explore common cloud vulnerabilities such as negligence, cyber threats, and system vulnerabilities.
