The Cloud Infrastructure and Services (CIS) course educates participants about cloud deployment and service models, cloud infrastructure, and the key considerations in migrating to cloud computing. For all definitions of cloud computing, the course has resorted to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology as a guide. The course covers technologies required to build classic (traditional), virtualized, and cloud data center environments. These technologies include compute, storage, networking, desktop and application virtualization. Additional areas of focus include backup/recovery, business continuity, security, and management. Students will learn about the key considerations and steps involved in transitioning from the current state of their data center to a cloud computing environment. Upon completing this course, participants will have the knowledge to make informed decisions about migrating to cloud infrastructure and choosing the best deployment model for their organization.

  • Experienced IT professionals, who may not have had exposure to the emerging field of Cloud computing
  • IT professionals responsible for architecting and managing IT infrastructure
  • Industry-wide IT teams who are directly or indirectly responsible for transitioning their traditional IT infrastructure to the Cloud infrastructure
  • Students and professionals who are looking to pursue career in Cloud computing
  • Individuals who are seeking EMC Cloud Associate (EMCCLA) certification
  • Basic understanding of computer architecture, operating system, networking and database
  • Experience in Compute system, storage and network infrastructure will be an added advantage
