This video covers defining the types of cloud networking solutions.
- [Instructor] So now let's look at the types of cloud networking. So, keep in mind that the cloud is not really a network, but it provides some networking services. Things come out of the cloud on demand, so obviously it's not networking hardware or even networking software, but it does provide some networking services, such as virtual private clouds, domain name services, things like that. These services vary a great deal from cloud to cloud. So, ultimately, what you're gonna see in terms of networking services from Microsoft is gonna be very different than what you're gonna see from Amazon web services.
The core to this is that you understand how cloud networks are to interoperate with external and internal networks. So, let's look at the types of cloud networking solutions. We'll have the external and we have public clouds, the public cloud networking services, and we have virtual private networks, or virtual private clouds. We have load balancing, the ability to, in essence, balance loads between various systems and servers. And the domain services, which are part of that. So, there are other things that are gonna be specific that are native to a particular cloud provider, or public cloud provider you're using, but these are the three basic systems you're gonna see from cloud to cloud, whether it's a private cloud, public cloud, or even something that's a part of a larger community cloud network, things like that.
They're gonna have the ability to do a virtual private cloud. In many instances, the ability to do load balancing between servers and the ability to do basic DNS activities. So, keep in mind that cloud networking is in essence the core concept here. So, whether you're leveraging the virtual private cloud, domain name service, or load balancing, that goes to the cloud networking solution that's in the cloud. So, we leverage this on-demand out of the cloud, in essence, leveraging these services to become part of our network. So, what we're doing here is thinking about how we're gonna take our internal networking system and extend it seamlessly out to the world of cloud computing using any number of networking services, such as the three that are listed here.
So, we have network security and performance, part of VPC, DNS, which resolves IP, internet protocol addresses, load balancing, distributing loads over the Internet. So, the key takeaways are cloud networks are not complete networks, and thus must be managed with your external and internal networks. Key features they provide make using cloud-based systems easier and more secure. Keep in mind that the types of cloud networks differ from provider to provider.
- Internal and external cloud network requirements
- Moving networking to the cloud
- Considering cloud network performance
- Troubleshooting a cloud network
- AWS, Azure, and Google cloud networking
- Picking your cloud networking solution
- Planning for your cloud network
- Testing and operating your cloud network
