This course 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, along with elasticity, resiliency, multitenancy and associated containerization extensions as primary characteristics of cloud platforms.

The following primary topics are covered:

  • – Understanding the Technology Architecture of Private Clouds and Public Clouds
  • – Understanding the Technology Architecture of SaaS, PaaS and SaaS Environments
  • – Understanding the Technology Architecture of Elastic, Resilient, Multitenant and Containerized Environments
  • – Automated Administration and Centralized Remote Administration
  • – Container Sidecars and Container Chains
  • – Self-Provisioning and Platform Provisioning
  • – Usage Monitoring and Broad Access
  • – Realtime Resource Availability and Pay-as-You-Go
  • – Shared Resources and Resource Pooling
  • – Rapid Provisioning and Resource Reservation
  • – Workload Distribution and Dynamic Scalability
  • – Elastic Resource Capacity and Elastic Network Capacity
  • – Storage Service Gateway and Live Storage Migration
  • – Dynamic Failure Detection and Recovery and Zero Downtime
  • – Service Load Balancing and Load Balanced Virtual Server Instances
  • – Load Balanced Virtual Switches and Persistent Virtual Network Configurations
  • – Dynamic Data Normalization and Synchronized Operating State
  • – Intra-Storage Device Vertical Tiering and Cross-Storage Device Vertical Tiering
  • – Storage Workload Management and Storage Maintenance Window
  • – Cloud Balancing and Redundant Physical Connection for Virtual Servers
  • – Cloud Bursting, including Burst In and Burst Out to Private/Public Clouds

Duration: 1 Day
