INT-2688 Cloud+ Preparation

Credits 3
The Introduction to Cloud+ course maps to the Computing Technology Industry Association’s (CompTIA) Cloud+ Certification exam, which validates the skills needed to maintain and optimize cloud infrastructure services. The course provides students the knowledge and skills required to understand standard cloud methodologies; to implement, maintain, and deliver cloud technologies (e.g., network, storage, and virtualization technologies); and to understand aspects of Information Technology (IT) security, and the use of industry best practices related to cloud implementations. Cloud+ is a good introductory course for students who want to explore cloud computing, as well as, those who feel they need extra preparation for Advanced Virtualization courses like VMware, Citrix, and Amazon Web Service (AWS).
Prerequisite(s): INT-1460   with grade of C or higher.
