The cloud has various deployment and service models that can be combined with Agile software development methodologies to help your organization design and create your very own cloud strategy based on your organization's needs. In this course, you'll learn about Agile software development, cloud management, cloud identity and access management, the cloud physical infrastructure, the cloud logical infrastructure, and cloud privacy. Next, you'll examine the available cloud deployment models such as public, private, hybrid, community, and virtual public clouds, as well as multi-cloud and multitenancy environments. You'll then move on to explore cloud service models such as Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service. Finally, you'll learn about advanced topics such the Internet of Things.

IN THIS COURSE

  • 1m 50s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about your instructor and the course. In this course, you’ll learn more about Agile software development, cloud management, cloud identity and access management, the cloud physical infrastructure, the cloud logical infrastructure, and cloud privacy. You’ll also learn about cloud deployment models such as public clouds, private clouds, hybrid clouds, community clouds, virtual public clouds, multi-cloud environments, and multitenancy environments. FREE ACCESS
  • 7m 55s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about reducing code branching requirements in your Agile processes. You’ll learn the concept of Unlimited Servers in the cloud. You’ll discover virtualization in most cloud providers means it may be unlimited, which means the cloud eliminates the need for physical servers. This will help you eliminate the wait time for standing up a system. The cloud also provides the ability to perform parallel activities. FREE ACCESS

    3.  Cloud Management
    5m 8s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about cloud technology choices. You’ll learn there are many systems hosting the solution. When making a cloud technology choice, it’s important to consider the risks and be informed about your decision. One of the biggest considerations to keep in mind is Security. You must understand user identity management and access controls. The second consideration when it comes to security is Compliance. Is the system compliant to all regulations? FREE ACCESS

    4.  Cloud Identity and Access Management
    8m 36s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about Cloud Identity and Access Management. You’ll learn identity refers to your user account, but applications can have an identity, too. Once you have identities configured, you can set up access management or IAM to make sure those identities have access to the correct cloud resources. You’ll learn IAM can also make sure identities have access to the right things at the right times. FREE ACCESS

    5.  Cloud Infrastructure
    8m
    In this video, you’ll learn more about cloud infrastructure. You’ll learn the infrastructure is composed of many components and moving parts. Some are physical and some are virtual. You’ll discover the job of the cloud is to Abstract everything you need. This means the cloud provides you with everything you need, without you needing to be involved in the physical aspect of the servers needed or the installation processes for the software. It's all Automated. FREE ACCESS

    6.  Cloud Privacy Concerns
    7m 18s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about privacy issues with the cloud. You’ll learn that while people tend to trust external parties with their data, this isn’t always the best idea. You’ll learn that the user’s servers are remote. This means they're virtual and on someone else's physical systems. Service providers have access to those physical machines. This means users’ data is a critical asset to organizations. These organizations put data on someone else's system. FREE ACCESS

    7.  Cloud Deployment Model Considerations
    4m 1s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about cloud deployment models. You’ll learn there are several different models of cloud deployment and each has its own considerations. You’ll discover the most common deployment model is the public cloud. The public cloud is generally managed by cloud providers like Google, IBM, Microsoft, or Amazon. The opposite of that is the private cloud. A private cloud refers to your own data center. This means you manage the systems. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Cloud Application Architecture
    6m 37s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about cloud application architecture. You’ll learn that one of the reasons to use the cloud is because you want to build globally distributed and highly available and scalable applications or services. You can divide cloud architecture into two parts. These parts are the front end and back end. The front end is where users interact with systems, and the back end is where things happen behind the scenes. FREE ACCESS

    9.  Cloud Deployment Models
    4m 47s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about cloud deployment models. You’ll learn how to choose the right one for you. To do this, you’ll need to consider things like cost, compliance, and your specific demands. First, you’ll learn about the Public cloud. The Public cloud represents significant cost savings because you don't have to manage anything. The Private cloud is very flexible. It’s owned and operated by you, so you can scale as needed.

    10.  Infrastructure as a Service
    5m 24s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about Infrastructure as a Service, or IaaS. You’ll learn IaaS is a mechanism for providing virtualized computing resources over the internet. An IaaS provider is a cloud vendor. They manage the physical compute resources behind the scenes. Meanwhile, the virtual infrastructure like VMs, databases, and networking is delivered to the client. The main characteristic of IaaS is that resources are provided as services. FREE ACCESS

    11.  Platform as a Service
    6m 9s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about Platform as a Service or PaaS. You’ll learn PaaS is a mechanism of delivering a framework for developers so they can create customized cloud applications and services. PaaS provides the needed hardware and software tools required by the customer. These are delivered by a service provider virtually over the internet. One of the components of PaaS is the infrastructure. FREE ACCESS

    12.  Software as a Service
    6m 25s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about Software as a Service, or SaaS. You’ll learn SaaS is a software distribution model that allows for the deployment of applications or services to third parties over the internet. You’ll discover SaaS is a software on-demand model. Providers give network-based access to applications to their customers. A common example of this is Gmail. Google provides you with a software service for reading and sending emails. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    13.  Internet of Things
    5m 6s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the Internet of Things or IoT. You’ll learn the IoT is a system of interconnected physical devices that transmit data to and from the cloud and even each other. This includes things like a smartwatch, a phone, or a Fitbit. To facilitate that data exchange, you need a device manager in the cloud to take care of device registration, routing of data, and security of information during transmission. FREE ACCESS
