Introduction to Cloud Computing

Welcome to the Cloud... now, what is it?

Created by Xavier Corbett - 


Students: 234040, Price: Free

There is no such thing as ‘the cloud,’ it’s just somebody else’s computer” – Did you ever hear that one?I have, and it’s what prompted me to create this course!

In this introduction to Cloud Computing, we answer the key question “What is the cloud?” With a solid, standards based approach and examples from the real word, we look at all the definitions that come together to mean cloud.

After this course you will have the foundation you need to launch into a career using cloud, to spearhead the cloud initiative within your organisation, or simply hold your own in that infuriating water cooler conversation with Simon the datacentre manager about how “there is no such things as ‘the cloud’”.

Using a web browser and an electronic blackboard my style is to talk and draw.There are no technical prerequisites so, let’s get going….

A Practical Introduction to Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing made simple with real world practical examples

Created by Neil Anderson - Building your Cloud and Data Center career


Students: 81607, Price: Free

The 2nd top hit for 'Cloud Computing' on Google says 'Cloud computing is a general term for the delivery of hosted services over the internet.' Unfortunately, that definition is completely wrong.

This course is designed to clear up the many misunderstandings about Cloud Computing and to give you a crystal clear and easy to understand explanation of exactly what it is, how it works, the different options available, the advantages provided and how much it's going to cost.

And I'm not just going to give you the theory, I'm going to show you practical examples which you can follow along with yourself so you'll understand exactly how Cloud Computing works in the real world.

I start off with a review in Module 1 of the traditional deployment models of On Premises and Colo so you can understand how Cloud changes things, then explain how server virtualisation revolutionised data center design and paved the way for Cloud.

Module 2 defines Cloud Computing by listing the Essential Characteristics of Cloud services.

You'll learn about the Cloud Service Models of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and XaaS in Module 3. I start with an overview of the different models and then dive deep into the details and options of each. I also give lab demos of how to deploy each type.

The Cloud Deployment Models of Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud and Community Cloud are covered in Module 4.

Finally in Module 5 I list out the advantages of Cloud Computing and then break out the spreadsheet to show you how to do a TCO cost comparison when choosing between an On Premise or Cloud deployment for a real world workload.

A verifiable course certificate stating you have completed this training will be provided at the end of the course. This will prove to potential future employers that you have the basic cloud knowledge necessary to be an effective member of their IT team, and the motivation to complete further training and be a real asset to their company.

As a student in this course, you will get an answer to every question you ask in the Ask Question section. I love interaction with my students- anything you want to know, please ask.

Thank you for taking the time to read about the course. I hope you now have enough motivation to get into the learning right away. If so, click the Enroll Now button at the top of the page to get started!

Starting your Career with Amazon AWS

If you are looking forward to starting a career in cloud computing with Amazon AWS, you must watch this course first.

Created by Andrew I - Cloud Computing Instructor


Students: 13006, Price: Free

Did you know that the average pay of entry-level professionals is $124,300?

If one thing is certain in IT, it’s never too late to cash in on the cloud. As the cloud becomes more critical to IT and the business at large, demand for cloud skills will only grow. But proving you have the right skills and knowledge in a competitive job market can be difficult. If you’re looking for an extra edge in landing a new job or promotion, cloud certification can be a great option.

A Forbes article on cloud computing forecasts summarizes key statistics regarding the current cloud computing landscape and also includes a look to the future. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the dominant cloud computing player and achieved an incredible 43 percent year-over-year growth. According to Wikibon predictions, AWS revenue should top $43 billion by 2022. AWS is followed closely by Microsoft Azure and the Google Cloud Platform.

A close examination of what's available to IT professionals by way of cloud-related certifications shows a large and growing number of credentials. For 2019, the best cloud certifications include both vendor-neutral and vendor-specific certification options from some top players in the market. However, certification providers watch technology areas carefully, and seldom jump into any of them until clear and strong interest has been indisputably established.

The big question is... What Cloud Certification track should you start with?

No matter which direction you choose, cloud certifications are sure to take your career to the next level. Here’s my round-up of the most sought after cloud computing certifications you should consider.
