Course Cloud Computing Overview

Cloud Computing is used by more and more organizations to meet their IT needs. Cloud Computing means a major change in the way we think about the IT infrastructure. Cloud Computing eliminates the need to make costs for the purchase of hardware and software and for setting up and managing your own on-site data centers. Many Cloud Computing services are provided as self-service on demand and at much less cost than an infrastructure in-house.

    Intro Cloud Computing

    The course Cloud Computing starts with a discussion of the advantages of Cloud Computing such as less management costs, better scalability, up to date security and backup. The possibilities for virtualization and monitoring are also treated.

    Type of Clouds

    Furthermore attention is paid to the different types such as public clouds that are managed by external cloud providers and private clouds that are specifically intended for one company. Hybrid and community clouds are also covered.

    Cloud Services

    Part of the program of the course Cloud Computing Overview is also what is called the Cloud Computing Stack. Cloud Services come in four main categories: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Serverless and Software as a Service (SaaS).

    Cloud Providers

    Various Cloud Providers such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud are reviewed. Their differences are explained as well as how you deploy applications on them.


    Attention is also paid to the use of lightweight container images that contain applications with all dependencies and that can be started quickly. The difference between containers and virtual machines is treated and both Docker and OpenShift containers are covered.

    Container Orchestration

    Finally container orchestration with Docker Swarm and Kubernetes is discussed and the use of ADC Controllers with Load Balancing and Multiplexing is explained.
