Deploying cloud-based solutions efficiently and securely requires that the network be configured correctly. In this course, you'll learn about the network services that need to be considered when deploying cloud solutions. First, you'll explore the role of network services such as DHCP, DNS, CDN, IPAM, as well as VPNs. You'll learn about the features of virtual routing including dynamic and static routing. Next, you'll examine virtual network interface controllers and the features of network appliances such as load balancers, firewalls, and virtual private clouds. Finally, you'll learn about the features of virtual LANs, single root input/output virtualization, and software-defined networks. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the CompTIA Cloud+ (CV0-003) certification.

IN THIS COURSE

  • 1m 59s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the course and your instructor. In this course, you’ll learn about the network services that need to be considered when deploying cloud solutions. You’ll learn the role of network services such as DHCP, DNS, IPAM, content delivery networks, and VPNs. Next, you’ll learn the features of virtual routing, including dynamic and static routing, virtual network interface controllers, and features of network appliances. FREE ACCESS
  • 10m 16s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about common network services that might be required to support your solutions in the cloud. You’ll learn two of the core services of almost any network are DNS for hostname resolution and DHCP for IP address assignment. You’ll see you can set up these services as part of your own infrastructure within your cloud environment and manage them yourself or you can have the provider implement them for you. FREE ACCESS

    3.  Virtual Private Networks
    6m 24s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about implementing Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs with cloud services. You’ll also learn about some of the different types of VPNs and different protocols that can be used. You’ll discover any VPN allows for remote connectivity from your on-premises environment to your virtual cloud network so resources can be accessed just as if they were part of your local network, like any other VPN.

    4.  Virtual Routing
    9m 57s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about virtual routing and forwarding in a cloud environment. You’ll learn how this allows you to deal with the constantly changing nature of cloud configurations at the network level. You’ll first review how virtual networks are defined. This begins at the level of Virtual Network Interfaces in virtual machines. You’ll discover the interface itself is defined and managed using software because the physical adapter resides within the physical host. FREE ACCESS

    5.  Network Appliances
    6m 38s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the network appliances that are available to be configured in a cloud environment. You’ll learn more about load balancers and firewalls. You’ll start by looking at load balancers, which help distribute traffic equally across a number of host systems that all provide the same service. You don’t directly interact with a hardware device. Load balancers can be implemented through a dedicated hardware appliance or through software. FREE ACCESS

    6.  Virtual Private Cloud
    8m 29s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the implementation of a Virtual Private Cloud as part of a cloud-based solution. You’ll learn this solution is a private cloud hosted within a public cloud. This is a pool of resources that can be shared by the tenant and allocated on demand while remaining isolated from other tenants. You’ll learn there are two main models of cloud services: public and private. FREE ACCESS

    7.  VLAN/VXLAN/GENEVE
    9m 51s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the features of Virtual LANs or VLANs, with respect to how they can help an organization deploy cloud-based solutions to support its subscribers. You’ll a VLAN configuration is not something you would see as a cloud consumer, rather as a provider. VLANs represent one of the ways you can configure network segments that are partitioned or divided into smaller units, isolated from each other. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Single Root Input/Output Virtualization
    6m 7s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about Single Root Input/Output Virtualization or SR-IOV. You’ll learn this is an extension of the PCI Express specification for network adapter cards. It allows for separation of access to resources of the physical device across various PCIe hardware functions. You’ll discover it allows for virtualization of the adapter in the adapter itself, allowing for multiple virtual machines running on a physical-host system to simultaneously access a single physical adapter. FREE ACCESS

    9.  Software-defined Networks
    6m 11s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the implementation of Software-Defined Networking in cloud solutions. You’ll learn this is an architectural methodology that abstracts the management of networking components from the physical hardware. It provides much more intelligent control and centralized control by using a software management platform, instead of manually reconfiguring the hardware. This is especially useful for an environment that frequently changes its configuration. FREE ACCESS

    10.  Creating Virtual Networks in a Cloud Service
    6m 14s
    In this video, you’ll watch a demo. In this demonstration, you’ll learn to create a virtual network in the cloud. Onscreen, you’ll see you’ll be using Microsoft Azure, but you can use any major public cloud provider. From the home page, you’ll click on ‘New resource’ and search for a virtual network. The first option is a Virtual Network, and you’ll click on that. FREE ACCESS

    11.  Creating a Virtual Network Gateway
    5m 18s
    In this video, you’ll watch a demo. In this demonstration, you’ll see how to add a virtual network gateway to the virtual network you created earlier. This will allow you to access this network from the public Internet and from your on-premises environment, using a VPN. To get started, you’ll click on Create a resource in the upper left-hand corner. You’ll then search for a Virtual network gateway. FREE ACCESS

    12.  Course Summary
    54s
    In this video, you’ll summarize what you’ve learned in the course. In this course, you’ve learned about the network services that must be considered when deploying cloud solutions. You explored deploying network solutions, using network services, virtual private networks and virtual routing, network appliances, and virtual private clouds, VLAN, VXLAN, GENEVE and Single Root Input/Output Virtualization, and features of software-defined networking, and creating a cloud-based virtual network with a virtual network gateway.
