Cloud computing has revolutionized the way we build, deploy, and maintain applications. Due to this paradigm shift, many businesses now rent rather than own IT infrastructure. This new way of approaching infrastructure requirements has given way to multiple cloud computing models, such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Function as a Service (FaaS). Knowing what your options are for cloud computing can help you choose the best models for your needs. Use this course to gain a solid foundational understanding of cloud computing. Compare various cloud service providers based on services, available tools, and pricing. Learn about real-life use cases for cloud computing and how businesses can benefit from this ever-evolving technological feat. When you've completed this course, your newfound knowledge of cloud computing will help you decide how it can help your business.
