Overview Overview

Day 1 - provides end-to-end coverage of fundamental cloud computing topics as they relate to both technology and business. The module is divided into a series of sections, each of which is accompanied by a hands-on exercise.

Day 2 - explores technology-related topics that relate to cloud computing platforms. It does not get into implementation or programming details, but instead keeps coverage at a conceptual level, focusing on topics that address cloud service architecture, cloud security threats and technologies, virtualization and data processing.

Day 3 - provides a technical insight into foundational cloud computing platforms. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) environments are explored as compound patterns, comprised of unique and shared building blocks. This module is structured as a guided tour through these architectural layers, describing primary components, highlighting shared components and explaining how building blocks can be assembled and implemented via cloud computing mechanisms and practices

Day 4 - builds upon Day 3 to provide a deep dive into elastic, resilient and multitenant technology architectures, as well as specialized solution architectures, such as cloud bursting and cloud balancing. Through the study of architectural mechanisms, industry technologies and design patterns, both core and extended components are described that combine to realize elasticity, resiliency and multitenancy as primary characteristics of cloud platforms. By leveraging these native and enhanced scalability and failover-related feature-sets, specialized solution architectures are described to enable bursting between clouds and on-premise and cloud environments, as well as the balancing of runtime loads across clouds for performance and failover purposes.

Day 5 - presents participants with a series of exercises and problems that are designed to test their ability to apply their knowledge of topics covered previously.
