Overview/Description
Learners can explore cloud deployment considerations, cloud management, and some of the challenges and considerations resulting from different types of cloud platforms, in this 14-video course. To begin, take a look at the challenges of cloud service such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). This leads into learning about challenges introduced by different types of cloud platforms such as public, private, hybrid, and community. Learners next explore considerations related to cloud management and study specifics about cloud application architecture, and Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions. Discover how to differentiate between physical versus logical infrastructure for cloud operations, and how to implement operational controls and standards. Observe how to ensure compliance with regulations and controls, such as Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and ISO/IEC 20000-1; learn to recognize different privacy concerns; and take a look at auditing, its processes and methodologies. Examine the importance of Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and finally, learn about vendor management considerations such as supply chain risk.
