Course Description

Before adopting cloud services, you need to calculate costs and establish the most appropriate contract with cloud providers.

In this course, you'll explore the direct cost and financial implications of various aspects of cloud computing. You'll also examine cloud computing licensing models and subscription types and compare cloud computing's initial costs with the long-term benefits.

Additionally, you'll list core considerations when establishing contracts for cloud service usage. You'll investigate requests for information (RFIs), cloud pricing models, the differences between fixed and dynamic pricing, and best practices for deriving cloud-based professional services.

Moving on, you'll outline the end-to-end services provided by managed cloud service providers (CSPs) and the benefits of those services. You'll examine the essential components of SOWs for cloud managed services. Lastly, you'll configure cost estimates for AWS service usage using the AWS Pricing Calculator.

You can use this course in preparation for the CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ (CLO-002) certification exam.
