Description

In the past decade cloud computing has been gaining popularity at a tremendous rate. Some cloud providers are experiencing a growth rate of 50% year over year – which is just astounding. And the reasons for this growth is obvious – cloud computing enables ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal effort.

As companies across the globe enjoy the benefits of public cloud infrastructure – they also want to leverage the same principles of cloud computing and bring those benefits to how they manage their own private data centers or build private clouds on top of public cloud infrastructure. These private cloud deployments provide secure and highly efficient way to install, configure and manage pooled computing resources which could be shared among various departments or groups within the organization. The provisioning and consumption of these pooled resources become much smoother and consumers can use these resources on self-service basis eliminating lengthy provisioning wait times etc.

OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for building and managing our own IaaS cloud infrastructure. This cloud software platform comprises of various services and components which can configure and manage control hardware pools of computing power, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. Users either manage it through a web-based dashboard, through command-line tools, or through a RESTful API. 

In this course we will learn about OpenStack and its various components and services. 

In this course we will:

  • Learn about cloud computing
  • Learn about OpenStack
  • Learn about various sub-components of OpenStack
Who is the target audience?
  • Cloud engineers
  • System designers
  • Software and IT architects
  • CIOs, CTOs or any technology leader looking to utilize cloud computing in their organization
  • Software engineers
  • IT administrators

I like to work on hard problems and get my hands dirty with cutting edge technologies. In the last few years, I've been a business owner, technical architect, CTO, coder, startup consultant, and more.

Currently, I am the principal consultant, architect and CTO of a software consulting company TetraNoodle Technologies based in Vancouver, Canada. We work with various startups on some cutting edge and interesting problems.

I have been in the software industry since 1997 and I have worked with early stage businesses to Fortune 100 mega corporations.

With proficiency in creating innovative architectures and solutions, I have emerged as a professional who knows how to balance these solutions against cost, schedule, function, quality, and other business considerations.

I am passionate about sharing all my knowledge that I have acquired over the years. I am particularly interested in helping technical and non-technical entrepreneurs, founders and co-founders of tech startups. I will strive to bring courses which provide practical know-how and advice about designing, architecting, optimizing and executing on your next big idea.
