Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Vlad Catrinescu, and welcome to my course, Virtualization and Cloud Computing, part of the Computer Fundamental series. I am a Microsoft MVP in both PowerShell and Office 365 from Montreal, Canada. Virtualization and cloud computing are at the core of every enterprise's IT strategy and a key part of their digital transformation. As you start your career in information technology, it's important to understand the basics of both virtualization and cloud computing before diving deeper in specific vendors and technologies. In this course, we are going to learn the concepts and benefits of virtualization and cloud computing. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include benefits of virtualization and cloud computing, common cloud models, virtual desktop, and virtual application streaming. By the end of this course, you'll know what a virtualization and cloud computing really means, as well as the different types of services and options you have in order to get the most out of those technologies. As this course is part of the Computer Fundamentals series, there is no prerequisite before listening. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about virtualization and cloud computing with the Computer Fundamentals Virtualization and Cloud Computing course, at Pluralsight.
