Course Overview
Hello, everyone. My name is Jurgen Kevelaers, and welcome to my course, Cloud Computing Fundamentals: Management and Technical Operations. I am an independent software architect and developer focused on building scalable solutions in the cloud. Cloud computing is a hot topic. You hear about it everywhere, but that is such an extensive concept that it can be hard to comprehend what it can do for you. This course will teach you everything you need to know about the management and technical operation side of the cloud. You will learn how to handle the day‑to‑day administration of cloud resources. Some of the major topics that we will cover include: high availability and disaster recovery, monitoring and notifications, DevOps, continuous integration and continuous delivery, and optimizing and managing costs. This course was written for anyone involved with the cloud, not just developers, and it looks at different platforms, including Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. You don't need to know a lot up front, but it helps if you have had some exposure to a cloud portal. To drive home the essential principles, we will look at several demos and will also do a scenario‑based review at the end of each module. By the end of this course, you will know all about management and technical operations in the cloud and how you can use this knowledge to optimize your cloud deployments. Join me on this journey to learning about cloud computing fundamentals here at Pluralsight.
