This course is a comprehensive overview of cloud computing. Defined categories of compute, storage, and network are examined with emphasis on network. Application of the cloud delivery models of Infrastructure-, Platform- and Software-as-a-Service (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) to deployment models of public, private and hybrid clouds are covered. Physical and logical cloud architectures are thoroughly reviewed. Server and network virtualization using virtual machine hypervisors and virtual containers are surveyed. Data center applications of cloud technology, particularly internal and external data center network architectures, are discussed in depth. Public cloud provider implementations and cloud management are observed. Learning is confirmed and enhanced by real world case studies and labs.
