  • 8m 31s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about cloud architectures. Cloud computing is the availability of computing resources on-demand without active management of underlying hardware required by the user. The private cloud is one model of cloud computing. Traditionally organizations would purchase hardware to meet the specific needs of the application. The private cloud is an extension of that model, and the delivery model has changed. A private cloud can be on-prem or off-prem. FREE ACCESS

    3.  Cloud Architecture Challenges and Opportunities
    6m 36s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the challenges and opportunities of cloud architecture. The shift in paradigm and the multitude of cloud services and offerings have shifted skill sets and moved the traditional infrastructure support model to a service-oriented scripting encoding centric model. There are many operational opportunities for the IT professional and administrators looking to adopt cloud services. FREE ACCESS

    4.  Hybrid or Multi-Cloud Implementation Planning
    7m 11s
    In this video, you’ll learn how to plan for a hybrid or multi-cloud implementation. Planning for implementing cloud services either in tandem with existing infrastructure in a hybrid configuration or as a replacement involving multiple clouds is a complex process. The organization should take preliminary actions to prepare the infrastructure for cloud migration to reduce the chances of failure. Cloud operations move away from a capital expenditure model to an operational expense model. FREE ACCESS

    5.  Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Design Patterns
    5m 50s
    In this video, you’ll learn about hybrid and multi-cloud design patterns. Every organization has a unique landscape of workloads with its own requirements and constraints that can be translated to a design pattern within a hybrid or multi-cloud architecture. In one category there are patterns that run applications best suited to deployment in a single computing environment. In the other category, patterns are deployed across multiple cloud platforms for redundancy or capacity. FREE ACCESS

    6.  Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Network Topologies
    6m 15s
    In this video, you’ll learn about hybrid and multi-cloud network topologies. A network topology is a description. It’s often visualized in a network diagram of the elements within the network. It’s used to define the arrangement of the network and the components within. There are two types of topologies, physical and logical. The physical describes the ways nodes are connected to each other. The logical topology describes how data flows between points in the network. FREE ACCESS

    7.  Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Topology Best Practices
    7m 27s
    In this video, you’ll learn hybrid and multi-cloud topology best practices. When an organization starts its journey into cloud adoption, it must perform critical analysis to determine which network topology to adopt. Following best practices ensures the network is stable, available, and performs well. The application must be analyzed to determine how many nodes can suffer a failure before the application's performance either drops below acceptable levels or fails entirely. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Disaster Recovery Planning Using Load Balancers
    8m 25s
    In this video, you’ll learn about disaster recovery planning using load balancers. Utilizing multiple cloud platforms for disaster recovery is a standard architecture adopted by many organizations. Disaster recovery using the cloud is beneficial in hybrid and multi-cloud models. Cloud services providers may offer disaster recovery services on the platform, like automatic replication, offsite, and failover. FREE ACCESS

    9.  Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Architecture
    6m 2s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about hybrid and multi-cloud architecture. System architecture defines how components of a system are structured. It defines how they interact and behave with one another. They offer additional view models for a specific application stack. Multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures focus on what service the clouds are providing, but system architecture focuses on how the components of the application work together. FREE ACCESS

    10.  DNS-based Load Balancer Traffic Routing
    6m 28s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about DNS-based load balancer traffic routing. DNS load balancing operates with a round Robin algorithm, where each subsequent request for the target IP address will receive the next in the pool. This provides easy configuration and can span globally with no extra server-side requirements. Because of the simplicity of the implementation, DNS load balancing does not incorporate any health checking on the backend services. FREE ACCESS

    12.  Designing a Hybrid Cloud Architecture
    6m 12s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about designing a hybrid cloud architecture. Many organizations are moving towards a hybrid cloud model. Many service providers deliver their services online or require integration with their cloud services for modern workspace tools. For the example in this course, you’ll look at an organization that utilizes office applications because these are very common. FREE ACCESS
