Hello And on behalf of the entire cyber security, a 90 learning team. Welcome back to Cloud Architecture Foundations. This is Module 1.1. Ah, Cloud overview. And this is Kevin Mayo, your cyber instructor and data nerd. And let's get this cloud party started.
So you don't know where you're going unless you know where you've been The last time we got together, we introduce to you the Cloud Architecture foundations course. It's 10 different learning modules. The various supplementals, like cyber, is amazing hands on cloud labs. And why you, as a 90 professional, need to be supporting the three types of networks today? Those networks that are cloud always
those networks that are cloud first
or are those networks that are just beginning their journey into the cloud and are today cloud curious.
So what we learn in this video? Well, we're gonna learn to be the who, what and why of the cloud. Who are the players? What type of service is the cloud delivering tor networks and why is the cloud so compelling to businesses? Today?
We will review the most common cloud platforms such a software's of service computers. A service platform is a service and cloud networking. We will review the various cloud modeling architectures, says the Private Cloud Public Cloud and that in between space known as hybrid cloud and community cloud archetypes. So if you're ready to go, let's start having some fun
and let's get cloudy.
About five years ago, I'm at the airport on business travel and having one of my favorite things a cold microbrew.
The guy sitting next to me, as it turns out, is a team leader of eight Microsoft Exchange administrators for a U. S Fortune 50 company.
This man tells me the story of how he and his team traveled the world with one purpose. To patch software, upgrade the software, and then eventually migrate the software to the next release of over 100 Microsoft Exchange servers across seven exchange force across the globe.
The story's a great example of white cloud platforms such as Microsoft Office 3 65 Software as a service is so compelling to the enterprise, imagine just the maintenance cost of nine guys traveling the world to manage gesture, Cos. Email.
And as the team leader of exchange server administrator's finishes his story, I remember him excitedly excitingly saying, I can't wait for Microsoft office 3 65
My team can stop managing, exchange and get back to the businesses. Team cares about servicing his networks and users and their customers. And for Microsoft, the delivery of the office suite and exchanges so much simpler. And enterprise used to have an on site on it from Microsoft, where they would audit your network to determine how much of their licensing,
client and device access licenses
you were really consuming so that your subscription fees could be Trude up. Now, every time whenever your users opens their office 3 65 delivered service, Microsoft could easily and in a friendly way keep your client and device access licenses enforced and not have to rely on the honor system.
Software as a service really is the answer to simplifying software consumption and saw for an application management.
So most of this course will be on the Big Three. In the cloud Amazon Web service is AWS, Microsoft Azure and now Google's cloud platform G C P, which is really gaining steam,
and there are so many cloud providers and cloud service offerings that is impossible to list them all
the cloud could mean so many different things to different organizations. For now, I want to focus on IBM International Business Machines Corporation because it's a recognized name. And it's a great example of how traditional computing and software companies are changing the way they do business by shifting from on premise business technologies
to cloud delivered and cloud managed business models.
This picture is from IBM is website shows the use of computer punch cards in 1928. IBM invented the computerized punchcard IBM punch cards became the industry standard for the next 50 years, holding nearly all of the world's known information at the time.
IBM is punch cards helped automate large scale projects such as the U. S Census. IBM today continues to hold more U. S patents than any other company.
IBM is. Cloud offers Air Justus Big and let me share just a small list of thumb compute bare metal and virtual servers. Network service is like load balancers, virtual private network VP and tunnels and firewalls, storage management tools, tools that monitor cloud appointments, tools that even manage a competitors. Cloud service is
databases like sequel, no sequel and querying tools, data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Internet of things I ot service is that connect and manage I OT devices and software an application developer tools. IBM is a great company
and a great example of how premise based solutions have become compelling and competitive cloud solutions.
So what do we mean by cloud computing and cloud computing architecture? The lowest levels Infrastructure is a service I. A s. This is where pre confer Gator Hardware's provided to the cloud customer. There is infrastructure only, and no software is provided, such as the operating system or the applications. The's a responsibility of the buyer
platform is a service P A s goes one step further and includes the operating environment. Such of the operating system and application service is platform is the service is primarily for organization to our developers and require a development environment for a given application, but really like the idea of someone else. Maintaining the deployment platform forthem
and software is a service
offers fully functional applications On demand to provide specific service is such a email customer relationship management, CR M enterprise resource planning, E R P Web conferencing and a whole host of other applications.
There are so many cloud service is out there. Another great example is this great cloud communications company called Brant's Off, recently purchased by Cisco. I could buy a bunch of hippie telephones in my business. I can plug them into the Internet, and then Cisco's broad soft communication cloud platform will provide me. My phone lines
will provide me my telephone system features
my voice mail messaging, my WebEx meeting service's and customer cloud spaces in business team spaces. My intelligent contact center and call recording service is and all the analytics about how I can better improve and how I currently use my communication platform service's.
So there are four primary cloud deployment models. An example of a private cloud is my company's cloud that I own and manage. Like extending my service is to a data center out of state, where I house my own email servers and some of my application servers. Public Cloud is just that, a cloud provider who shares their clout with the public for a fee.
Microsoft Office 3 65 is a great example of a public cloud
hybrid. Is that between state you see hybrid for companies who are a little shy and don't want to trust the clown for everything. So some of their critical service is air shared on premise and also in the cloud like secondary servers and fail over servers being cloud based. But Primary service's are still on prim, where they can control the environment
and trust the management of their critical systems to their own personnel.
And a great example of a community cloud is a big city network where smaller cities and counties might share each other. Service is to reduce costs and maximize their personnel across their shared cloud environment.
Oh, for crying out cloud, it's time for a learning check. Here's four questions I'd like you to look at Hit pause. Come up with the answers, and then when you're ready, hit play and we'll review the answers together.
So if you're ready, let's review. So what are those three primary cloud platforms? You've got your infrastructures of service, which is your infrastructure, but without the operating systems and the applications you've got. Your platform is a service which is your infrastructure plusher operating system in your applications. Perfect for those
companies that like to develop their own applications, but not have to manage the infrastructure themselves.
And then there's that software as a service right, which is the easy way to go get our software.
What are the four different cloud deployment models? Why you got your private cloud, You got your public cloud, you got your hybrid. Which is that in between and in the community. What are the two advantages of software is a service. Well, it's just dang easy. It's also a great way to deliver software to our users by opening up a browser.
The other thing that we could do with software as a service is it's really easy for manufacturers like Microsoft to do things like
Cal client access, license enforcement
and what it was a great way of holding most of the world's information. Well, for 50 years, thanks to IBM, we were able to use punch cards to control and hold the world's information in hand.
So in today's brief lecture, we discussed some of the who's some of the whats and some of the wise of the cloud.
We learned a little bit about infrastructures of service. Platform is the service and software is a service, and we learned about private public hybrid and community cloud architectures and cloud model types.
So cloud on friends And in our next module, infrastructures of service, we're gonna be looking at how I e. S delivers networking as a service. Wireless is a service and firewall on VP and security technologies to the enterprise from the Amazing Cloud.
So, until next time, on behalf of the entire cyber security and I t team, we wanna wish you
your network and you're in users
Happy, Paige, it's
