This course provides provides a technical drill-down into the inner workings and mechanics of foundational cloud computing platforms. Private and public cloud environments are dissected into concrete, componentized building blocks (referred to as “patterns”) that individually represent platform feature-sets, functions and/or artifacts, and are collectively applied to establish distinct technology architecture layers. Building upon these foundations, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments are further explored as compound patterns, comprised of unique and shared building blocks.
The course is structured as a guided tour through these architectural layers, describing primary components, highlighting shared components, exploring containerization extensions and explaining how building blocks can be assembled and implemented via cloud computing mechanisms and practices.
The following primary topics are covered:
– Understanding the Technology Architecture of Private Clouds and Public Clouds
– Understanding the Technology Architecture of SaaS, PaaS and ISaaS Environments
– Automated Administration and Centralized Remote Administration
– Container Sidecars and Container Chains
– Self-Provisioning and Platform Provisioning
– Rich Containers and Logical Pod Containers
– Bare-Metal Provisioning and Resource Management
– Single-Node Multi-Containers and Multipath Resource Access
– Usage Monitoring and Broad Access
– Realtime Resource Availability and Pay-as-You-Go
– Shared Resources and Resource Pooling
– Rapid Provisioning and Resource Reservation
– Non-Disruptive Service Relocation and Service State Management
– Workload Distribution and Dynamic Scalability
Duration: 1 Day

About the Text Books
This CCP course module covers a range of in-depth topics that are described in the course booklets and further elaborated by more detailed coverage in the associated Cloud Computing Design Patterns text book from the acclaimed Prentice Hall Service Technology Series from Thomas Erl. This text book is included in paperback format as part of the Study Kit and may be provided in paperback or electronic format as part of workshops.
Note that this course contains reading exercises that require the Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture text book that is provided as part of the course materials for the pre-requisite CCP Module 1.
This course is part of the following certification tracks:
– Certified Cloud Architect
Vendor-Neutral Topic Overview
Note that all CCP course modules are focused on vendor-neutral topics and therefore do not provide detailed coverage of any vendor-specific platforms or technologies. CCP courses are intentionally authored this way so as to provide an unambiguous and objective understanding of practices and technology that can be further complemented with product-specific training.
