Course overview

In the past few years, new information technology has become the latest buzzword among businesses and computer professionals. In addition, that technology is “Cloud Computing”. Cloud Computing is sweeping over the technological landscape. This course will explain the definition of this concept and give you a basic idea about how to get started using this technology. You are most likely, already using some form of cloud-based computing in your daily activities.

To understand the definition, consider the following. Almost everyone has a Google Account. Included in your Google account is Google Drive. This is a cloud-based service that enables you to create, edit & store documents, forms, etc. that were once limited to your desktop machine. After you have created your documents, you can share them with others, and access them from any internet-connected device.

Of course, Cloud Computing is more complicated than described here, in that we need to include the fact that there are three service models and four deployment models (which we will discuss in this course). This course aims at offering a holistic understanding of cloud computing on Google Cloud and developing a compute example on Google Cloud Platform. 

Our cloud computing course is accurate and intended to focus on offering time-tested and proven techniques you need to learn cloud computing and also be a pro in this technology. This course will tell you about what cloud computing is, and:
