Cloud Computing 101

Free Online Courses

Coursera is offering free online classes on a variety of topics this month. I selected “Cloud Computing Basics (Cloud 101”. This online course covers the basic terminology and tools implemented in a cloud computing environment. The class included online lecture and videos, discussion groups and quizzes to test your knowledge base.

I thought the course covered the material thoroughly and was easy to understand. I enjoyed reading the comments from other students. Some Coursera classes offer Certificates from a University or an organization. This class provided a Certificate of Acknowledgement from Coursera.

This is designed as a three week course. It is at your own pace and you receive a grade at completion.

Class Schedule

Week One – Course covered the Cloud and Levels of Managed Service: Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, Software as a Service, and Function as a Service

Week Two – Discussed deployment models of Cloud computing: private and public deployment models, hybrid cloud, HPC cloud, and big data cloud

Week Three – Lectures were on Comparing Cloud Platforms: Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, and SalesForce
