  • Earns a Badge
Cloud load balancing enables splitting workloads and computing properties to balance load and maximize resource utilization for better user experiences. In this course, you'll recognize techniques to implement load balancing in the cloud, including selecting the appropriate load balancer. You'll also explore the concept of the virtualization of hardware resources. Next, you'll examine the prominent load balancing architectures implemented in the cloud and the critical load balancer configuration attributes to manage load distribution and session data. You'll also identify common DNS servers to resolve hostnames into IP addresses and queries used to resolve names. Later, you'll identify the characteristics of the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Secure Shell (SSH) You'll then investigate disaster recovery failover in cloud. Lastly, you'll create and configure a load balancer and DNS routing. This course can be used to prepare for the CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ (CLO-002) certification exam.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • discover the key concepts covered in this course
    identify the importance of load balancing in the cloud and the various techniques to implement it
    recall the Open Systems Interconnection model and describe the concept of load balancing defined by the associated layer of The OSI Model
    compare the features of application load balancers, network load balancers, and classic load balancers that help select the appropriate load balancer based on application requirements
    describe the concept of the virtualization of hardware resources and how they are allocated to VMs running in the cloud server
    recognize and compare the prominent load balancing architectures that can be implemented in the cloud
