Moving to the Cloud

Course Summary

The Moving to the Cloud training course provides an overview of the key concepts, technologies, products, implications, paradigms, development methodologies, project management practices, and business models/implications associated with developing a platform-based infrastructure such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Students start by reviewing the history of the Cloud, as well as the current trends in the industry. The course then provides some strategies with dealing with the Cloud paradigm shift and will then describe a process for how to move operations to the cloud. The course concludes with an introduction to AWS and how to work with it. This course can be delivered to support AWS, Google, RackSpace, and other cloud computing/PaaS solutions.
