Description

The demand for Cloud Architects is very high and you as a technical guru can take advantage of this.If your currently a Solutions Architect, System Administrator or Developer this course is a great transition.

As your well credentialed instructor I will be working with you for over 10 hours going thru what a Cloud Architect needs to know.   We will cover the basics of cloud, then we will cover cloud frameworks, cloud ecosystems, cloud migrations, cloud analysis, etc.   This is a vendor neutral course where you will learn the basics but i will apply the fundamentals to the three major providers so you can take this knowledge and run...  We will touch on Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and MS Azure for IaaS/PaaS.   Salesforce and Servicenow for SaaS as well as O365 briefly.   Lastly, I will go thru what you need to look for in a Cloud role and the best resources for finding a new job or gig.  

The materials are based on the The Professional Cloud Solutions Architect certification which equips solution architects with insights and familiarity with the topology and ecosystems that are being created as a result of cloud technology adoption and operating models. 

Organizations want to leverage cloud computing to it’s full potential, which is changing architecture requirements. Professionals who are defining the architecture of future generation technology solutions need to grasp these changes and approaches to facilitate the needs in the solutions architecture.

The PCSA syllabus outlines the impact of cloud on business and information architecture, application design, data management, and security architecture.

Amazon VPC lets you provision a logically isolated section of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways. You can also create a hardware Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection between your corporate datacenter and your VPC and leverage the AWS cloud as an extension of your corporate datacenter.

The vast majority of enterprises today are planning for a multi-cloud strategy that will encompass a portfolio of public and private cloud options. There are a wide range of business requirements that drive the need for a heterogeneous set of cloud resource pools — including geography, cost, features, and existing investments. For example, an enterprise may have teams using AWS and Azure and other teams using vSphere to meet the needs of different applications and business goals.

cloud management platform (CMP) should make it even easier and faster for enterprise users to get fully configured stacks or applications in public or private clouds via an easy-to-use interface without sacrificing the necessary visibility, governance, and control.

In this multi-cloud world, organizations are looking for ways to broker and manage cloud applications and services from a single pane of glass.
