The VMware Cloud Computing Craze

Over the last couple of years, cloud computing has taken the world of enterprise applications of information technology by storm. Almost every enterprise of any size now relies on cloud computing in some or the other way for meetings its targeted revenue and synchronization of work across all its work locations.

With the Internet permeating every aspect of work, cloud computing allows for real time coordination between work activities without the related cost or investment in physical resources. This has made cloud computing an indispensable resource for enterprises as well as individual users. However, its vast applicability has also given rise to the necessity for proper education and training.

Cloud Computing Courses
With a wide array of applications, it is very tough for individuals and enterprises to truly grasp the potential of cloud computing in the bigger picture of things. To understand this, they must first understand the fundamentals of the technology through relevant cloud computing courses.

There are already several cloud computing courses available through many established players in the world IT arena. While each of these courses covers different topics and applications related to cloud computing, an ideal course should cover the following:

A.     Fundamentals:
Fundamentals of cloud computing refer to the very building blocks of the technology. Any cloud computing training course would be incomplete if it does not teach the fundamentals. While most IT users are more or less with the term, its actual characteristics, (how it is designed and structured) and the wide range of its applicability are known to a handful few. The fundamentals of cloud computing courses can clear out this fuzzy understanding and put all concepts in clear light.

B.     Deployment:
Just as there is basic understanding of the concepts of cloud computing among users, the understanding of deployment requirements is also not that great. However, the cloud calls for a good deal of expertise and no IT user would find it easy to deploy cloud computing without actually understanding it in-depth. By enrolling in a cloud computing deployment training course, IT professionals can understand exactly how they can implement this initiative and how they can streamline the new applications for quick and maximum benefits.

Deployment would also normally allow the implementers to understand and define the steps they would have to take, and the pros and cons involved in bringing about a cloud computing initiative in their organization.

C.     Architecture:
An architecture course in cloud computing would equip a user to start designing a cloud computing application from scratch as per the requirements of the enterprise and also effectively implement it. The training would involve understanding the practical aspects and "nuts and bolts" of cloud computing in addition to developing the entire process. Using traditional development technologies, such a course would train users on understanding the application life cycle requirements of the cloud.
