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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Finally container orchestration with Docker Swarm and Kubernetes is discussed and the use of ADC Controllers with Load Balancing and Multiplexing is explained.
The course Cloud Computing Overview is aimed at everyone who wants to use Cloud Computing and requires a detailed understanding of the relevant technologies.
Experience in modern IT technologies and preferably development methodologies is required.
The subject matter is treated on the basis of presentation slides. Demos are used to clarify the theory. During the course theory and exercises are interchanged. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.
Participants receive an official certificate of participation in Cloud Computing Overview after successful completion of the course.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
