Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions.
- [Lecturer] So, what do you need to know to take this course? Well, it's good to have a basic understanding of cloud computing and cloud computing services, such as storage and compute services and databases. But you don't have to be an expert, you can be a rank beginner and still understand the basic concepts to grasp architecture. Also, you need to have an understanding of security and some basic understanding of governance, but again, you can be a rank beginner, you don't have to be an expert in those topics either.
This course is targeted at IT professionals who have a basic understanding of the cloud and are ready to move on to creating a cloud architecture. David Linthicum begins with the business case and requirement patterns, and then moves onto mapping requirements to individual architecture concepts. There are multiple aspects to consider: storage, processing, governance, management and monitoring, security, performance, and more. David also includes discussion of advanced topics such as serverless architectures and containers. Watch and learn how to make sense of today's requirements, and plan your cloud-based architecture to scale with what your company needs to succeed tomorrow.
