Cloud Computing 101

Free Online Courses

Coursera offers free online classes on a variety of topics. I selected “Cloud Computing Basics (Cloud 101”; this course covered the basic terminology and tools implemented in a cloud computing environment. The course included online lectures and videos, discussion groups and quizzes to test your knowledge base.

The course covered the material thoroughly and was easy to understand. I enjoyed reading the comments from other students; there is always something new to learn from others. Coursera classes offer Certificates from a University or an organization when the course is completed. This class provided a Certificate of Acknowledgement from Coursera. This is a three week course.

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
