Intro to Cloud Computing Online Training

This foundational CBT Nuggets cloud computing course prepares learners to develop the most essential skills for the most modern IT infrastructures using cloud computing to lower costs and increase effectiveness.

It often seems like the omnipresence of "the cloud" is rivaled only by uncertainty and confusion about what exactly the cloud is and what it does. For many years, it was a buzzword that a lot of people took to mean a better internet, or just a physical repository of information somewhere. But gradually, more organizations and people have come to recognize the cloud and cloud computing for what it is: an opportunity to offload all the physical hardware that goes into storing data and running programs and applications that only charges you for what you use. Cloud computing is an avenue for organizations to lower costs, increase flexibility and flourish — this training can help show the way.

After finishing this Intro to Cloud Computing training, you'll know how to develop the most essential skills for the most modern IT infrastructures using cloud computing to lower costs and increase effectiveness.
