Short description

This course covers the operating principles, utility and risks of migrating functions and services to the cloud.

Expanded description

The Cloud is being widely adopted today for a diverse set of reasons. There are many questions that can be asked related to this fast adoption of cloud offerings. We see anything from the ease of sharing documents with co-workers to the use of a cloud access security broker to supply enforcement of our security policies for many cloud-based implementations. This course will begin by providing the necessary architecture components to help us understand what technologies are being used under the hood so that we can make informed decisions when choosing a cloud vendor. We will then look at different types of cloud products, how they work, what they can do for us and how we can make informed decisions on benefits of migrating to the cloud. We will also discuss the negatives, as there are many times one should not move to the cloud with certain types of data or when costs are too high. We will spend a lot of time on understanding security as it relates to our data and includes discussions on agreements with cloud vendors. This is a well-rounded course that will meet the needs of any individual or organization that is considering a move to the cloud or has been there and is not sure why.
