Course overview

The Cloud Platforms course makes an overview of cloud computing systems and gives basic practical knowledge to hit the ground running:
  • The course starts with core concepts, like compute power, storage, networking, and how they are represented in public cloud environments.
  • Then it explains how to stitch applications together: resource management, identities, security, and monitoring. cloud economics and how not to get skyrocketed bill.
