Cloud Infrastructure and Services (CIS) v2

Cloud Infrastructure and Services (CIS) v2 Course Description

Duration: 5.00 days (40 hours)

In this course, you will learn how to build cloud infrastructure based on a cloud computing reference model. The reference model includes five fundamental layers (physical, virtual, control, orchestration, and service) and three cross-layer functions (business continuity, security, and service management) for building a cloud infrastructure. For each layer and cross-layer function, you will learn about the comprising technologies, components, processes, and mechanisms. You will also learn about the concepts and technologies, which are further illustrated and reinforced with EMC-related product examples.

The course follows the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a guide for all definitions of cloud computing. Upon completing this course, you will have the knowledge to make informed decisions on technologies, processes, and mechanisms required to build a cloud infrastructure.
