Cloud Computing Foundation Training

Cloud computing is the term given to the availability of IT resources usually supplied by an external 3rd party service provider and accessed using the Internet. The ‘Cloud’ itself is a virtualisation of resources – networks, servers, applications, data storage and services – to which the end user has constant on-demand access. These resources can be provided with minimal user management or service provider interaction.

The Cloud Computing Foundation training course delivers a comprehensive introduction to the deployment and support of Cloud IT resources AND a recognised industry standard certification awarded by EXIN.


Essential training for Cloud Computing professionals

The two-day Cloud Computing Foundation course is designed for anyone in an organisation who is researching, planning or supporting an implementation of Cloud computing. It is particularly suited for IT Managers who are responsible for the delivery of Cloud services and IT Directors who need to understand and evaluate the business case and performance of Cloud resources.

Cloud Computing Foundation is intended for everyone playing a role or having an interest in the use and management of internet based IT services. This includes staff from internal and external service providers, their customers, and their managers.
