There are multiple management subjects that are important to understand when working with virtualization and/or Cloud solutions. In this course, Basic Management Principles in a Cloud Environment, you'll learn foundational knowledge of the high-level processes and procedures to manage your Cloud environment. First, you'll learn about virtualization and Cloud resource allocation and how it compares with traditional solutions. Next, you'll discuss resource use, deployment and optimization techniques. Then, you'll explore user accounts and the different techniques and tasks that are used when provisioning them. Finally, you'll discover virtualization and cloud SLA metric concepts and how they can be assessed. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Cloud environment needed to manage your virtual or Cloud solutions.
Course Overview Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author, and technical editor at infoDispersion. I am excited to welcome you to my course, Basic Management Principles in a Cloud Environment. In Virtualization Environment Resource Allocation, we discuss the allocation of cloud resources and how they are handled. In Determining Resource Use, Deployment, and Optimization, we talk about cloud resource use, verification, and optimization. In Implementing Security and Policy, Account Provisioning Techniques, we focus on resource provisioning by covering a user's account lifecycle, as well as how it can be automated or orchestrated. And finally, in Reviewing the Common Cloud and Virtualization SLA Metrics, we finish up and discuss resource measurement, including measurement methods and metrics. By the end of this course, you'll have a good base of knowledge to successfully understand the different management concepts, technologies, processes, and procedures that are commonly seen implemented on cloud and virtualization-based solutions. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about the cloud with the Basic Management Principles in a Cloud Environment course at Pluralsight.
