Virtualization and cloud
Lecturers and associates
The objective of this module is to enable students to learn:
• the differences between on-premise, local infrastructure and cloud infrastructure
• the various methods of moving from virtualized to a cloud-based environment
• how to administer security, objects and remote access for an environment based on Microsoft public cloud infrastructure
Studnets learn about the nteraction between a standard virtualized environment and cloud-based environment. As cloud adoption grows and partially replaces traditional, on premises environment, it's important for students to learn when to use on-premise vs cloud solution, as cloud-based solutions are not the be-all end-all sloutions for every scenario.
It is important for students to take this module because virtualization and cloud are the two most common ways for providing IT infrastructure. That means that this knowledge and understanding will be very beneficial for students future careers as non-virtualized environments are nowadays almost non-existant. This module will expose students to practical experiences in addressing virtualized and cloud-based solutions.
