What you will learn

  1. Multi-Cloud Computing

    Estimated 1 month to complete

    This multiple cloud computing course was designed to introduce learners to multi-cloud architectures and how to design and implement these architectures effectively. It provides learners with the job-ready digital skills they need to approach the shift to a multi-cloud strategy. This involves adopting a mixture of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) services from 2 or more cloud providers and sharing workloads between each—allowing users to choose services that meet their specific needs.

    Prerequisite knowledge

    Basic knowledge of Git, cloud providers & Terraform.

    1. Moving to the Cloud with Multi-Cloud
      • Define a cloud strategy.
      • Identify the most important considerations of cloud implementation.
      • Evaluate multi-cloud implementation considerations for a given use case.
      • Selecting Multi-Cloud Services
        • Identify pros and cons of a multi-cloud strategy.
        • Compare various cloud services and determine the most feasible for a use case.
        • Remediate any shortcomings of a multi-cloud strategy.
        • Designing Multi-Cloud Architecture
          • Identify architecture components for multi-cloud and when and where to use them.
          • Design a multi-cloud application architecture.
          • Explain what is distributed multicloud and when to use it.
          • Deploying Multi-Cloud Services
            • Write Terraform code to deploy to multiple cloud providers.
            • Deploy a multi-cloud architecture using Terraform.
            • Course Project: A Multi-Cloud Application

              In this project, learners will act as employees for a company that has just decided to deploy a cloud-native application. After much deliberation, the company has decided to use a dotnet app and SQL database in Azure, and NoSQL and object storage in AWS. Learners will do some research and provide a rationale for one of these choices, then design an architecture diagram for these services and providers. The end goal is to deploy the infrastructure necessary in both cloud providers using a cloud-agnostic tool to prevent cloud vendor lock-in.
