Description

The core of Cloud+ is configuration and deployment. In this course, Configuration and Deployment for the Cloud, you will learn the basics of a virtualization/cloud solutions initial deployment. First, you will learn about system and plan requirements to develop and execute testing of a plan and assess virtual network elements, along their required use in a scenario. Next, you'll gain knowledge of CPU and memory sizing along with storage technologies and assessment. Finally, you'll learn about workload and service infrastructure migration. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Cloud+ needed for configuration and deployment.

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 Configuration and Deployment for the Cloud. This course is one of many courses that are being introduced into the Pluralsight library to cover Cloud topics. This course specifically focuses on configuration and deployment topics. In executing a deployment plan, we look at the elements that go into a deployment plan and the process that is used to create a solution. In virtualization and cloud architectures, we discuss the different cloud and virtualization technologies that are available. In CPU and memory sizing analysis, we discuss the different technologies and features involved to ensure proper solution sizing. In determining the best storage solution, we will go over each of the different virtualization and cloud storage options and how they are implemented. In analyzing virtual networking requirements, we review a number of networking concepts and technologies that are often utilized. In testing plan requirements, execution and analysis, we discuss how testing plans are performed and used in these environments. In analyzing the workload for successful migration, we review the different migration options and technologies. And finally in extending the infrastructure into the cloud, we take a look at some of the different solutions that need to be extended when moving to a virtualization or cloud solution. By the end of this course you'll have a good base of knowledge to successfully configure and deploy cloud and virtualization based solutions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the cloud with the Configuration and Deployment for the Cloud course at Pluralsight.
