Learners will explore an overview of the cloud and its various forms, including public, private, and hybrid clouds, in this 10-video course, which helps prepare for the Microsoft 365 Fundamentals (MS-900) exam, including Windows 10, deployment, licenses, and upgrades. The course opens by discussing specifically what the cloud means and what it represents to individuals and organizations today, beginning with basic concepts: first, the cloud is at its core, networking, but uses the Internet to connect to the cloud network rather than a private dedicated connection to a local area network; the most common cloud services, including remote storage and retrieval of data; and the three types of clouds: public, where space is purchased on shared servers; private; and hybrid, a combination of the two. Similarities and differences between on-premises data solutions and cloud-based data solutions are also covered. A concluding exercise asks learners to describe the cloud, the public cloud, and the private cloud, and to explain pros of the cloud.
