Cloud Training in London

Cloud technology can be best described as a collection of concepts that enable pooling of IT resources for enhanced access, scalability and performance. In simple terms, one can think of it as a massive data center that can handle any requirements.

Cloud technology is changing the way businesses and users interact and use IT resources around the world. A decade ago, setting up an online business website and managing users required significant effort and money for servers, capacity, bandwidth etc. Cloud technology has changed the model by removing these high cost and investment barriers. Many companies do not even have to think or worry about setting up data centers or setting up big IT teams.

Cloud technology enables applications and services to be delivered to users dynamically when they need it from the cloud. Managing uneven volumes of traffic becomes easy because cloud technology caters to pooling and releasing resources dynamically. Think of the iTunes stores and how music is available for download for millions of users.

Introduction to Cloud Computing and Virtualization

Covering the relationship between internet and cloud computing. Exploring different cloud deployment models such as private cloud, public cloud, community cloud and hybrid clouds. This module also covers the current market leaders in cloud and how they differentiate their service offering. Virtualization is when a single server is made to appear as multiple independent servers running the same or different operating systems.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

If you have ever used a browser to buy something online, you have likely used the Software as a Service model. In this module of the training, we cover concepts of mash-ups, pros and cons of a SaaS model, security risks. This module also addresses the role of OpenSaaS solutions and role of Application Service Providers (ASPs).

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

This is akin to providing cloud solutions that run on Windows or a Linus based operating system and support specific programming environment for developers such as .NET or Java. This model makes it easy for a development team to be put together and get started on work without worrying so much about the hardware and the configurations. In most cases, an entire IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is made available through the cloud as a platform.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

When companies require more control over their platform, services and other resources. This is similar to having one’s own turnkey datacenter through the internet. Ideal for larger companies, the IaaS solution requires the customer to install and manage the systems. This module covers the concepts of colocation; Network attached storage (NAS), load balancing, redundancy etc.

Collaboration and Cloud Computing

This module addresses the technologies involved in setting up services such as blogging, virtual meeting, virtual presentation, VoIP, streaming media and Wiki’s in the cloud. Cloud computing has changed the way teams and individuals interact and collaborate.

Storage

This module addresses storage concepts in cloud with discussions centered on cloud based storage. The module covers in detail cloud based database solutions, security concerns and industry specific data storage solutions. Other concepts covered here include Storage area Network (SAN), NAS, Cloud File System(CFS) and cloud data management interface (CDMI).

Virtualization

Through virtualization, servers can run multiple operating systems and increase CPU utilization. Instead of having 5 servers dedicated to performing 5 specific set of functions, virtualization can have one server performing 5 different functions. This reduces the total number of servers required and subsequently costs associated with maintaining different servers. This module covers in details concepts of guest operating systems, virtual desktop, virtual server, virtual private network and Hypervisor.

Cloud Security

One of the biggest concerns that companies have about cloud solutions is around security issues. This module addresses security advantages and disadvantages of cloud solutions. There is also in-depth coverage of data wiping processes and DDoS attack issues. Other concepts covered in the module include packet sniffing, SQL-injection attacks, hyperjacking attacks and Denial of service attacks.

Cloud Operations and migration

This module discusses Service Level Agreements (SLAs), vendor management, help desk procedures, ROI on cloud investments, testing and validation. The module also addresses steps for predictive analytics and load testing on a site. From a migration point of view, this module addresses concepts related to cloud bursting, vendor lock-ins etc.

Business Perspective

The main benefit of moving towards a cloud based IT model is to reduce the operating expenses of maintaining a traditional IT environment with data centers, support teams and other big IT expenditures. Cloud solutions offer tremendous economies of scale. This module addresses the steps involved in determining capital expenditures (CAPEX), operational expenditures (OPEX), Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
