Overview

While IT Professionals today are expected to understand some basic cloud terminology and concepts, and have likely worked with public cloud or Software-as-a-Service solutions, the ability to analyze, evaluate, design, and test cloud computing solutions are hard skills to find, and are in high demand. In this course, participants will apply the skills required to evaluate and implement standard deployments. Participants will implement, maintain, and deliver cloud technologies including network, storage, and virtualization technologies to create cloud solutions. Participants will manage workload migrations, manage cloud vendors to control costs, use automation and orchestration to bring business value from cloud solutions, and ensure security of cloud implementations through the use of cybersecurity best practices. In addition, this course prepares participants to pass the CompTIA® Cloud+® exam and earn the corresponding certification.
