    Introduction to Cloud Computing

    This five-day course includes an introduction to cloud computing, a comparison of traditional and cloud architecture, how cloud technologies have contributed to technological advancement in the world, a detailed understanding of cloud technologies, and learning about cloud computing platforms used in the global cloud market for industry improvement and growth.

    The course includes theoretical knowledge and hands-on labs on different cloud computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. You will gain a good understanding of these different cloud platforms and be able to perform all the basic tasks required, such as deploying virtual machines, configuring storage services, using network services and deploying them, and so on. You will understand the differences between these different cloud platforms and be able to properly use the cloud console of each of these public cloud platforms.

    Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computing system resources, particularly data storage (cloud storage) and computing power, without direct active management by the user. Large clouds often have functions distributed across multiple locations, each of which is a data center. Cloud computing relies on the sharing of resources to achieve consistency and typically uses a "pay-as-you-go" model that can help reduce capital expenditures, but can also lead to unforeseen operational expenses for unwitting users.
