  • You should be familiar with the basics of layer-2 switching, VLANs, IPv4, IP routing and Internet-related protocols (DNS and HTTP).
  • Awareness of virtual networking concepts and VMware-related challenges are highly recommended.

This 3-hour cloud computing training course describes the networking requirements of various cloud services (from infrastructure Virtualization to software-as-a-service solutions) with focus on virtual networking technologies needed in multi-tenant infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environments.

The second half of the cloud computing training course focuses on IaaS networking scalability and helps you select the most appropriate architecture for your environment based on the number of physical servers and tenants you envision in your environment.

Take this Cloud Computing Training course and learn virtual networking for cloud computing.


Who is the target audience?
  • If you’re a network architect, designer or implementation engineer planning or introducing public or private cloud solutions, this course is a must-have overview of available technologies, network designs, and scalability concerns.
