Introduction to Cloud Computing

Students learn how to administer and manage a cloud infrastructure by examining the distinguishing characteristics to implement cloud solutions for AWS, Azure & GCP. Students examine the similarities and differences between Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) to assess how organizations move from traditional on-premises data centers to the cloud. Central to this discussion is how to remove upfront costs and the complexity of owning and maintaining a physical infrastructure.
