Details

Hello and welcome to CompTIA Cloud Essentials. In this class, we will prepare you for the CompTIA CLO-001 certification which is CompTIA’s entry-level cloud certification. If you have not had any experience with cloud computing this is the perfect place to get started. We will look at the basic concepts of cloud computing and the major advantages and challenges of cloud computing. Specifically, in this class, we will first start with an introduction to cloud computing. We will review the basic terminology and the major cloud service categories.


Next, we will look at cloud computing from a business perspective and the major issues that are important to an organization. After that, we will look at cloud computing from a technical perspective. We will look at such issues as the major difference between public and private clouds, techniques for cloud computing deployment, cloud computing risks and challenges and the impact of cloud computing on application development.


After that, we will look at the steps an organization must take to successfully adopt cloud computing.


For the final two sections, we will look at how a company should operate with cloud comping and the steps they need to take with basic governance.


By the end of this class, you will be well prepared for the CLO-001 exam and will thoroughly understand the basic concepts that drive cloud computing today. You will be in a great position to help your organization transition to cloud computing and take advantage of one of the most exciting areas of information technology today. Thank you so much for your interest in this class. So let’s go ahead and get started. See you in class!
