  • About 6 months to a year of basic IT experience will be helpful.
  • Basic systems & networking knowledge.

This course will introduce you to the essential concepts in cloud computing and OpenStack. It is designed such that even a beginner can understand cloud computing and get a high level functional view of the OpenStack cloud, Docker, container orchestration technologies such as the Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Mesos.

My goal is to help my students build a strong foundation to build, operate and manage an OpenStack cloud. So this is the first course in my series of upcoming courses on OpenStack and cloud technologies. You will not be disappointed in buying any of my courses - I will constantly update my course to bring the current cloud and container technologies to you. If you find any relevant information missing, do let me know, and I will strive to update my course and include the details.

In this course, I will focus on building a strong background to help my students grasp advanced subject material presented in subsequent courses. I will teach you about cloud computing basics, IaaS cloud architecture model, compute, network and storage virtualization techniques, Docker containers, container networking, microservices and container orchestration engines. Then I will gently introduce the OpenStack Cloud, at a 500 ft. level, and teach you about all the popular and noteworthy OpenStack services. Then, I will build on the basics we have learned and teach you the OpenStack deployment architecture, functional interaction between the various services and how the networking service works in OpenStack!

My teaching assistant and I will support your learning and strive to clarify your doubts using the Udemy Q&A facility.

We sincerely hope you have a fulfilling learning experience and I am glad to have assisted you in your OpenStack cloud computing journey!!
