Cloud Training and Courseware

The latest trend that is sweeping the industry is Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing is a new form of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services). As with any emerging technology, there is a significant degree of both hype and fear. Organizations of all shapes and sizes are pondering the implications of cloud computing upon their enterprises.

WA1929 Cloud Essentials for Architects using OpenStack

Cloud Computing is gaining increasing attention within enterprises of all shapes and sizes, but few technologists actually know how to properly scope, design, and construct Cloud solutions. Taking standard software applications, databases, and user interfaces and deploying them in a Cloud environment is a recipe for disaster. Proper scoping, usage modeling, and careful design are all essential to success in the Cloud. This two day class begins with an examination of the Cloud Computing concept, the structure and key characteristics of Clouds, and takes a look under the hood at how they operate. From there, students are introduced to a Cloud Reference Model and explore various aspects of Cloud solution design from discovery throughout the lifecycle of a Cloud solution all the way to retirement. Special attention is given to requirements and Cloud utilization analysis, Cloud solution design strategies, and deployment scenarios. Upon completion of this course, students will have an understanding of the Cloud Computing environment and practical experience in designing, developing, and deploying Cloud-based solutions. This class consists of 25% hands-on labs in an actual OpenStack Cloud Computing development environment, and 75% lecture and discussion. Students should have some hands-on experience developing software, but the focus of the course is upon architecture and design considerations within the Cloud.

TP2434 Professional Cloud Security Manager

The challenge for professionals in security and governance in IT is in understanding the risks, issues and trade-offs presented by cloud computing.
The emergence of cloud computing has changed both the location and the domain of control of information technology. As on-premise hardware and software, and personal and corporate data are moved off-premise to a cloud or within the premises as a private cloud, the result is a change in ownership and responsibility for the systems, data and services. Current security and legal threats are shifting and new potential threats are being created.
This course is concerned with applying security and governance best practice to a cloud environment. It draws on security guidelines such as CSA and examines the key security issues of cloud computing and what types of business, commercial and technical governance are needed when managing cloud computing security.
