Course Description

This course prepares you for the Microsoft 365 Fundamentals Exam (MS-900), by focusing on cloud concepts, one of the four main categories in the exam. In its 10 videos, learners will explore several forms of the cloud, including public, private, and hybrid clouds, and how the cloud differs from on-premises data. You will learn about MS Office 365 Cloud services and its key features and benefits, and examine the key features and benefits of Internet-based public clouds. Then learn about private clouds, which are often on-premises, owned and operated by the organization, and rely on the organization's own security structures to maintain privacy and stay secure. This course goes on to discuss pros and cons of on-premises data centers. You will also explore the costs of on-premises IT infrastructure versus a cloud-based deployment, and learn the pros and cons of a cloud solution, as well as its attractive features: for example, uptime. Finally, you will learn that a cloud provider offers 99.999 percent uptime, since it relies on redundancy.
