For a cloud-based solution to run efficiently and cost-effectively, the appropriate sizing of resources is essential. In this course, you'll learn to configure the correct compute sizing for a deployment, as well as how to perform cloud migrations. First, you'll explore the features of virtualization such as hypervisors and how to compute. Next, you'll learn about the features of and how to correctly size CPUs, vCPUs, and GPUs. You'll explore memory allocation and the features of a hyperconverged infrastructure. You'll then learn about cloud migrations such as storage migrations, database migrations, physical to virtual migrations, virtual to virtual migrations, and cloud-to-cloud migrations. Finally, you'll examine cloud migration implications for access control lists, firewalls, and vendor lock-in. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the CompTIA Cloud+ (CV0-003) certification.

  • 2m 3s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the course and the instructor. In this course, you’ll explore considerations for determining resource requirements for cloud deployment and examine how to perform cloud migrations. You’ll learn the features of virtualization considerations, such as the types of hypervisors to assist with determining resource needs. Then you’ll learn the features of physical and virtual CPUs, physical and virtual GPUs, memory allocation, and features of a hyperconverged infrastructure. FREE ACCESS
  • 7m 48s
    In this video, you’ll learn some considerations for determining the sizing requirements with respect to resource allocation and other factors when deploying cloud solutions. You’ll start by looking at the degree to which virtual machines will be used. When considering your virtual machine usage from a consumers’ perspective, it's a matter of deciding how many you'll need and the specifications they’ll need. As the provider, virtual machines need to run on hardware of some kind. FREE ACCESS

    3.  CPU, vCPU, and GPU Estimation
    7m 13s
    In this video, you’ll look at considerations for estimating compute requirements for deploying a cloud solution. You’ll learn these must be considered from both the perspective of the consumer and the provider. When it comes to the consumer, you'll be dealing with virtual resources. If you're the provider, you need to determine if the physical resources you have can accommodate the needs of your subscribers. FREE ACCESS

    4.  Hyperconverged Infrastructure Estimation
    5m 26s
    In this video, you’ll examine the implementation of converged infrastructure and hyperconverged infrastructure for data center environments that are considering implementing private cloud solutions. You’ll learn this is only a consideration for those looking to become providers. Cloud consumers need not be concerned with any type of infrastructure at all. You’ll learn converged infrastructure is a method of data center management that combines infrastructure elements like compute resources, networking and virtualization, into a single appliance.

    5.  Memory Resource Estimation
    7m 6s
    In this video, you’ll examine considerations for estimating the memory allocation requirements of a cloud solution. You’ll learn this is a factor considered by both consumers and providers. Consumers will want as much as they can get, but this can drive up costs. Memory is often one of the most constrained resources in a cloud environment. FREE ACCESS

    6.  Physical and Virtual Cloud Migrations
    6m 10s
    In this video, you’ll learn about migrating your existing servers into the cloud, this includes both virtual and physical servers. You’ll learn these processes are referred to as Physical to Virtual or P2V Migrations, and Virtual to Virtual or V2V Migration. This refers to the process of capturing the configuration of an existing physical server into a virtual machine for P2V, and copying, replicating or otherwise moving an existing virtual machine for V2V.

    7.  Platform as a Service Migrations
    5m 48s
    In this video, you’ll learn about migrating from one cloud provider to another, or cloud-to-cloud migration. You’ll learn there are a number of business factors that drive the choice to migrate, but in most cases, it comes down to a change in your business needs. This change results in a situation where your current provider can't meet the needs required by those changes. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Software as a Service Migrations
    4m 32s
    In this video, you’ll learn about migrating Software as a Service solutions from one cloud to another. You’ll learn this can represent an easier migration because there are generally no concerns for infrastructure. The reasons for needing to migrate are generally the same as those for any cloud-to-cloud migration. There are several factors to take into consideration before undertaking your migration.

    9.  Cloud Migration Security Services
    9m 37s
    In this video, you’ll learn about cloud-to-cloud migrations from the perspective of the security services available. You’ll learn this includes firewalls, access control lists, and considerations with vendor lock-in, with the primary concern being the fact that services such as firewalls and access control lists aren’t services that can be migrated, as is, from one provider to another. You’ll also learn cloud-to-cloud migrations don't always mean public cloud provider to public cloud provider. FREE ACCESS

    10.  Storage Migration
    5m 17s
    In this video, you’ll learn about methods for migrating storage into the cloud, which can end up being the most important aspect of any migration project. You’ll discover applications, processes, websites, and databases all require access to data. For any type of migration project, you'll need to determine where data will be migrated to based on the workloads that will be accessing it and the types of data you're working with. FREE ACCESS

    11.  Cloud Database Migrations
    5m 38s
    In this video, you’ll learn about Migrating Databases to the Cloud. You’ll learn this can offer greater scalability, better performing infrastructure, more variety in terms of platform and management utilities, and pay-per-use subscriptions which help avoid costly upfront purchases. You’ll learn better performance can result from a migration which can enhance the performance of your queries by offloading the processing to more robust database engines as compared to what you may have had locally.
