Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Cloud Computing: BC/DR Best Practices.
- [Narrator] So what should you know before taking this course? Well we're assuming a few things. We're assuming that you have a basic knowledge of cloud computing and an interest in business continuity and disaster recovery. This includes planning, architecture, and core enabling technology. Skills you need include a rudimentary understanding of business. This does not mean you have to be an MBA, but you have to understand how business works. A core understanding of how cloud technology works and what it is, the differences between storage, compute and databases, for instance. You need to have a basic understanding of how backup systems work. The ability to put information from one storage system to tape or another storage system. Also some basic security concepts. In other words, what security is, what encryption is, and what it does. Also a very basic understanding of what governance is, service governance, resource level governance, API level governance, things like that. And then some business skills. In other words, understanding why business is looking at this particular problem in a particular way. In other words, if we're looking at business continuity and disaster recovery, it's ultimately something that serves the business. Understanding that will provide you with an advantage.
