Cloud Computing with AWS Training

Cloud & DevOps

Course Description

Cloud computing enables a user to focus on their projects and customers without worrying about infrastructure concerns. It not only saves time, money, and effort but also allows users to concentrate on more pressing aspects of their business.

Cognitio’s Cloud Computing with AWS course begins by discussing the basics of AWS and Cloud Computing, then moves on to discussing more advanced concepts such as service models (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). We wrap it all up in a deep dive into details on particular elements of the AWS platform.

The course encompasses hands-on exercises and real-time use cases to ensure that participants develop a thorough practical understanding of the concepts. To enrol for Cognitio’s Cloud Computing with AWS course, basic computer knowledge is all you need. Some knowledge of Linux, while not mandatory, is also beneficial.
