Introduction to Cloud Computing

Video Description

Technology is evolving and changing to embrace the cloud. Cloud computing allows you to utilize shared resources available through a service provider. Those resources can be storage space, use of software applications, or servers. You can buy more resources in the cloud if you need to and you can also give back resources that you no longer need. In this hands-on VTC course, you will access a variety of cloud services and work with different cloud providers such as Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Amazon. You will set up virtual servers, work with cloud file storage, learn about a variety of cloud collaboration options, and much more. This practical course will help you make the transition to working in the cloud from any device, anywhere, anytime! To begin learning today, simply click on the movie links.
