Course Description

 
Cloud Computing is gaining increasing attention within enterprises of all shapes and sizes, but few technologists actually know how to properly design Cloud solutions. Taking standard software applications, databases, and user interfaces and deploying them in a Cloud environment is a recipe for disaster. Proper scoping, usage modeling, and careful design are all essential to success in the Cloud This two day workshop introduces a Cloud Reference Model and explores various aspects of Cloud solution design from discovery throughout the lifecycle of a Cloud solution all the way to retirement. Special attention is given to requirements and Cloud utilization analysis, Cloud solution design strategies, and deployment scenarios. Upon completion of this course, students will have an understanding of the Cloud Computing environment and practical experience in designing, developing, and deploying Cloud-based solutions. This hands-on workshop consists of 50% hands-on labs in an actual Cloud Computing development environment, and 50% lecture and discussion. Students should have some hands-on experience developing software, but the focus of the course is upon architecture and design considerations within the Cloud.
