Course Description

What is cloud computing? According to NIST, ?Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.? Why do I need this certification? Professionals and users must be able to identify technology enabled for securing mission critical cloud-based assets under the scope of all policies, processes and compliance considerations that go along with this increasing trend in technology adoption. What will I learn? Application, data migration and infrastructure architecture of cloud based systems Get your Cloud Fundamentals Certification Today: Many businesses have moved to the Cloud for its agility, scalability, and of course monetary savings, but with all the benefits, of course, are risks. Professionals such as system owners, custodians, and even users must be aware of these risks and implement a plan to protect against them.
