Developing new software systems can be costly and time consuming. Cloud-based solutions can help get your system online quickly and cost-effectively and help to meet all your business requirements. In this course, you'll learn how to analyze the cloud solution design in support of business requirements. First, you'll explore how to analyze the solution design while considering requirements for software, hardware, system integration, security, network, disaster recovery, budgeting, service level agreements, and compliance. Next, you'll learn about the benefits of using multiple environments for development, quality assurance, staging, and production. You'll also examine the advantages of performing blue-green deployments. Finally, you'll learn about software development testing techniques such as performance, regression, functional, usability, vulnerability, and penetration testing. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the CompTIA Cloud+ (CV0-003) certification.

IN THIS COURSE

  • 2m 7s
    In this video, you’ll learn about your instructor and about the course. The CompTIA Cloud+ certification is targeted at IT infrastructure specialist audiences who want to develop multi-vendor skills in the areas of cloud computing. You’ll learn this certification addresses system architecture, security, deployment, operations, and automation, and aims to prepare system administrators to perform the tasks required of their job, not just to rely on a narrow set of vendor-specific product features and functions. FREE ACCESS
  • 7m 7s
    In this video, you'll learn how to decide if a cloud solution meets the requirements of your business. You'll learn why performing a detailed analysis of the requirements for a solution is critical and you'll learn what this assessment should include. You'll learn that you need to assess the requirements for hardware and infrastructure, software, backup and compliance, integration, and budget. FREE ACCESS

    3.  Service Level Agreements
    7m
    In this video, you'll learn the purpose of a Service Level Agreement when using cloud services. This agreement between the provider and the customer ensures a minimum level of service is maintained, which in turn provides reliability, availability, responsiveness, and governance for any solution that is implemented in the cloud. You'll learn that the two main sections of a Service Level Agreement include service elements and management elements. FREE ACCESS

    4.  Satisfying User and Business Needs
    5m 5s
    In this video, you'll learn about the process of ensuring user and business needs are satisfied by a cloud solution. You'll discover that this begins by understanding what the vision of a system is, its general purpose and behavior, how users will interact with it, and the environment in which it will be used. You'll then learn how to address the requirements of the users who will interact with the system daily. FREE ACCESS

    5.  Cloud Security
    10m 31s
    In this video, you'll learn about cloud services security, which includes a collection of technologies, policies and procedures, control, and services designed to protect data, applications, and infrastructure from inherent threats. You'll learn that you need to address both the security implementation of the provider themselves and the security of the solution that you build on top of their infrastructure. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    6.  Network Requirements
    7m 43s
    In this video, you'll learn the network requirements when implementing cloud solutions. You'll discover the resources available when using a major cloud provider are considerable. You'll learn that configuration of the network is handled virtually in the cloud and that the key challenges of the network configuration include determining the bandwidth requirements for a cloud solution. You'll also learn why proper configuration is so important. FREE ACCESS

    7.  Solution Environments
    6m 16s
    In this video, you'll learn the benefits of using different types of solution environments when developing a solution from its inception through to its deployment. You'll learn creating these environments within the cloud is less complicated than in an on-premises organization. You'll learn that the advantages of using multiple environments include the level of productivity that can be attained. With multiple environments, different development teams can work in dedicated environments instead of sharing them. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    8.  Blue-Green Environments
    5m 58s
    In this video, you'll learn about using Blue-Green Environments. This is the practice of running two identically configured production environments. One is called blue, the other is called green. In the cloud, adopting a blue-green approach to develop and deploy solutions is cost-effective and efficient. You'll learn that the benefits of these environments include a significantly reduced risk of deployment and more accurate validation and quality assurance. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    9.  Disaster Recovery
    9m 4s
    In this video, you'll learn about implementing disaster recovery with respect to cloud services. This is an approach that uses multiple strategies and services to ensure that in the event of failure, your business is able to resume and restore normal operations with as little disruption as possible, while ensuring your most valuable business resources are protected against loss. You'll learn that cloud providers have redundancy measures in place, in order to provide disaster recovery facilities. FREE ACCESS

    10.  QA Testing Techniques
    5m 40s
    In this video, you’ll learn methods of testing cloud services and solutions for quality assurance. You’ll learn that a cloud testing platform can be scaled to meet the level of demand without having to build or acquire anything in-house. This provides greater team efficiency for testers by facilitating the ability to easily and quickly spin up new testing environments with different configurations or to support different platforms. FREE ACCESS

    11.  Security Testing Techniques
    5m 25s
    In this video, you'll examine techniques for testing the security of a solution which focuses on identifying any vulnerabilities, threats or risks that may be present in a service or that might result from its implementation. You'll learn there are seven main types of security testing that have been defined the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual. Those types include vulnerability scanning, security scanning, penetration testing, risk assessment, security auditing, ethical hacking, and posture assessment. FREE ACCESS
