Cloud-based applications have now become a norm due to zero upfront costs and ease of management. Deployment of cloud-based applications can get a digital product to a wide market without the need to purchase costly server equipment and hire hardware professionals. Use this course to learn about the characteristics of cloud-ready applications and the different concepts, tools, and techniques related to deploying and managing cloud applications. Start by discovering key concepts related to cloud storage technologies and platforms. You'll also examine and compare Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Finally, you'll get a chance to explore data centers and their major types. After you've finished this course, you'll be able to identify cloud-ready applications and implement tools and solutions to make them ready for cloud deployment.
