This course explores various system requirements for the cloud. Learn the difference between cloud and non-cloud component interactions, how to select a cloud architecture, which tools to deploy and how to create a deployment plan. After you’ve deployed the cloud, learn how to test and troubleshoot.
Deployment Example Objectives ExplainedDuration: 6:20
This episode brings clarity to the Cloud+ objectives 1.1 through 1.4. Some confusion is common with these objectives and this episode will help to clarify the intentions of these objectives.
Cloud Component Interactions, Part 1Duration: 6:53
Cloud components can interact with each other. Understanding what each component is used for helps to understand how they interact. This episode is part 1 of cloud component interaction.
Cloud Component Interactions, Part 2Duration: 7:56
This episode is part 2 of cloud component interaction and covers storage, compute and security interactions.
Non-Cloud Component InteractionsDuration: 8:51
This episode explains the interaction components for non-cloud interaction. These interactions involve communications between cloud components and local components on your network.
Platforms and ApplicationsDuration: 5:26
This episode introduces the concept of platforms, which are used to provide everything needed for an application to operate properly.
Baselines LabDuration: 6:52
This episode provides an overview of baselines and a lab that you can work through on your machine to experience the creation of a performance baseline.
Target HostsDuration: 4:40
Selecting the hosts to move to the cloud is an important step in cloud deployment. This episode explains some of the important factors to consider when selecting target hosts for the cloud.
Existing Systems LabDuration: 9:08
Selecting hosts to move to the cloud begins by known the hosts that you have. This episode describes two common methods used to identify existing systems.
Architecting for Elements and Targets DemoDuration: 6:50
Selecting the right architecture and model for your cloud solution is important and it is driven by the elements and targets required. This episode provided guidance on selecting the best architecture for your needs.
Selecting Deployment Tools DemoDuration: 7:20
This episode introduces the tools that can be used for cloud deployments. Tools include command line tools, graphical tools, and automation/orchestration tools.
Executing a Deployment Plan DemoDuration: 9:25
Learn how to execute a deployment plan demo in this episode.
Evaluating Testing PlansDuration: 5:26
A testing plan should be evaluated and used to test the deployment. Business-critical functions should be validated. This episode provides guidance on testing cloud deployments.
Testing TechniquesDuration: 5:18
The testing methods used for cloud deployments are much the same as those used in traditional networks. This episode covers three common testing methods.
Analyze Testing ResultsDuration: 3:46
After testing, the results should be analyzed to identify any areas requiring attention, such as configuration changes, new services, removal of software and services, and so forth. This episode provides an overview of the considerations to be made during test results analysis.
Baseline Confirmation LabDuration: 8:21
In this episode, you will be shown a lab that you can perform to compare a baseline with actual performance in the cloud.
Deployment Problem Resolution LabDuration: 7:54
This episode completes the deployment planning and implementation with a discussion of problem resolution. It also includes a lab that you can perform in your cloud accounts to enhance the learning experience.
