Exin's Cloud Computing Foundation is not only a technical cloud course, but also focuses on the business and management side of cloud computing. This course examines the auditing and service response within cloud computing, as well the delegation of IT responsibilities within an environment focused on cloud technology. This course covers cloud technology within a variety of different areas, including: Hardware, Software, Processes, OS and Application Licenses, People, Power and Backups.
Cloud Computing signifies a major shift in the roles and responsibilities of IT. The provision and procurement of internet-based IT services offers many prospects in terms of scalability, cost reduction and higher efficiency.
This program provides IT professionals with the knowledge required to successfully implement cloud computing. Within a short period of time, you will become familiar with the opportunities and risks it involves and you will be able to formulate a business case and evaluate cloud services.
The EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation training provides you with the basics of cloud computing. EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation emphasizes the characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, and general management aspects of cloud computing.
In the official certification exam, candidates are tested on five categories which are covered in this preparatory training course. These five categories are:
- The Principles of Cloud Computing: This chapter deals with definitions, types of clouds (Public, Private and Hybrid) and cloud services (IAAS, PAAS, SAAS)
- Using the Cloud: This section is about accessing the cloud and mobility in the cloud
- Security and Compliance: This chapter is about the risks of cloud computing and the measures you can take to prevent these risks.
- Implementing and Managing Cloud Computing: In this section, you will learn about local cloud networks and how to support the use of cloud computing.
- Evaluation of Cloud Computing: Examples of the subjects covered here are cost aspects, (dis)advantages, and SLA's.
EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation is for everyone playing a role or having an interest in the use and management of internet-based services. Specific roles that would benefit include cross-functional management positions (Commercial, IT, Procurement, Finance, etc.), IT Professionals (Administrators, Service Managers) and staff of service providers.
There are no prerequisites to take this training course or take the official exam.
