Cloud Computing Training in Toronto Can Get You Ahead!

Looking for an Cloud Computing course in Toronto? Here’s some insight to get you started!

Cloud computing is still young in Canada compared to the US and UK, but it is growing rapidly. You’ll find many well-known technology companies in the Toronto-Waterloo corridor like Shopify, Google, Salesforce and FreshBooks all leveraging or providing cloud computing solutions in some form.

The cloud computing industry, primarily owned by familiar names like Amazon, Microsoft and Google, has been around for over 10 years and is worth over $247 billion. Canadian corporations have shifted their perception of cloud computing from just a cost-cutting measure, to rather a “cloud-first” technology approach in all areas of their organizations. This is supported by a research report conducted by IDC who forecasted a 11% shift of budget dollars in Canada toward cloud technologies 2016. As the cloud computing industry continues to grow and become an accepted approach to solving business problems and maximizing opportunities, skilled tech workers with cloud architecture training will be in high demand.

According to a report prepared by the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC), more than 57,000 people are expected to be employed in Canada’s “cloud economy” and that number will increase each year.

Web Age Cloud Computing classes are taught at locations throughout the Toronto area and other Ontario venues, delivered in traditional classroom style format or synchronous instructor led format.

What is Cloud Computing? Should I attend Toronto Cloud Computing classes?

Cloud computing is like a public utility service, but instead of delivering electricity or gas, it delivers computing services – servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more – on demand as needed over the “Cloud” (aka the Internet). This is a fundamental shift in the delivery of IT services away from corporations owning and managing all their own technology infrastructure.

There are three main categories of cloud computing services:

  1. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS): a third-party provides virtualized computing resources like storage capacity or bandwidth. This allows companies to quickly scale up and down with demand and pay only for what they use. i.e. Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure
  2. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS): a third-party provides access to hardware (like IaaS), but also provides software tools – usually those needed for software application development. i.e. AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Heroku
  3. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): a third-party hosts software applications and makes them available to customers over the Internet. Customers are not required install software on their hard drive. i.e.,
