Welcome to the Complete Cloud Computing Bootcamp – where we go from Instance Deployment to Remote Administration.

This course offers a comprehensive guide for aspiring cloud administrators looking to expand their knowledge in Cloud Computing and virtual instance configuration. In this course we will explore a number of key concepts starting from instance deployment, right up to remote server management, scaling and security.

This course starts by exploring the benefits of cloud computing from various aspects including cost efficiency, agility, scalability, and reliability. We explore the three main cloud computing service models including: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). We offer a detailed overview and comparison of the three models with example use cases of their application in modern enterprises. From there students gain hands-on experience in deploying and configuring virtual instances using one of the most robust and user-friendly cloud computing platforms out there: Linode.

The cloud computing section includes several key topics including:

  • Deploying virtual machines using pre-configured disk images.
  • Remote server administration using PuTTY, Terminal, and OpenSSH
  • Installing web servers & database management systems on Ubuntu.
  • Distinguishing between SQL and NoSQL Databases, including Database Transaction standards.
  • Understanding the foundations of Linux.
  • Installing and Configuring LAMP Stack for Ubuntu.
  • Installing and testing server-side scripting languages on Ubuntu
  • Server security with network and hosted firewalls
  • Scaling virtual machines vertically & horizontally with application load balancers.
  • Creating disk images and automated backups

After taking this course you will undoubtedly have the skills necessary to pursue a career in cloud computing.
