Without the concept of virtualization, large-scale and dynamic cloud computing data centers would not exist to the extent that they do. The ability to have a software layer that pools together underlying physical resources is provided by hypervisors. In this course, you'll explore the concept of hosts and the types of hypervisors they may use. You'll learn about the virtual machine (VM), various virtual resources, and common management tasks required to deploy VMs. You'll also learn about the key benefits of using virtualization. This course is one in a series of Skillsoft courses in the learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Cloud+ CV0-001 certification exam.
This CompTIA Cloud+ training course is targeted toward IT personnel with at least 24 to 36 months of IT experience in networking, storage, or data center administration. Good computer literacy along with a sound technical acumen should be present. It is also suitable for students looking to acquire job skills and to be trained specifically to pass the associated CompTIA Cloud+ certification exam. It is recommended, but not required, that candidates for the CompTIA Cloud+ exam obtain the CompTIA Network+ and/or CompTIA Storage+ certifications or equivalent knowledge.
