Cloud Services Planning and Design

Cloud Services Planning and Design Course Description

Duration: 5.00 days (40 hours)

This expert-level course provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to plan and design for robust cloud services in a cloud and IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) environment. Building on the skills acquired in the Cloud Infrastructure Planning and Design course, this course focuses on governance, organizational, financial, and technology aspects as well as the management and operation of cloud services. Through lecture, discussions, case studies, design examples, and a series of interactive labs, you will learn how to design solutions that transform business operations and cloud environments to support a cloud services model. The course is applicable to enterprise, service provider, and existing data center operations considering cloud and cloud services. This course focuses on core concepts, principals, and technologies rather than specific products. To provide context, the course includes EMC-specific examples and case studies.
