This course is aimed at the entry level Cloud architect who is either responsible for the design and build of a Hybrid cloud, or where an existing private Cloud or on-prem cloud appliance led drive to Hybrid is enforcing change.
The course explores where Hybrid Cloud has evolved from, the common mistakes made by organisations and architects building out early evolutions of cloud enabled connectivity to on-prem enterprise platforms.
Where organisations have already developed private cloud resources using tools such as vScaler, Openstack, Oracle Cloud in a Box or using platforms such as AWS Storage applicances we will explore the dynamic and changes that often challenge conceptions about safe pathways to Hybrid Cloud
Understanding our responsibilities as businesses around the protection of data, our audit and reporting responsibilities in a blended new enterprise Cloud schema. How to work with and satisty auditor expectations and how to enforce culture change in organisations where there are conflicts around data privacy and ownership of risk.
What is the difference between Hybrid Cloud and Multi Cloud ? What are the common misconceptions and what is it that we are trying to architect and do we need to do it all from scratch ?
The course will provide pathways to understand partnership and the value of reuse or replatforming of technologies to aid the adoption onramp to service provision.
We will look at the core disciplines required around storage ownership, virtualised services and the move to microservices architectures, automating our ability to provision with confidence.
Containers and application provisioning and how different providers provide core technologies around the model of infrastructure as code.
We will take a high level look at cloud monitoring and cloud application reporting, using data sensibly to understand our cloud usage as we evolve and allowing organisations to understand why so many Hybrid Cloud designs are as much as 30-40% over budget and how to avoid these mistakes.
How to choose the best provider and exploring whether the incumbent provider you may already be using may not be the best partner to solve all of your catalogue service items approach to Hybrid Cloud.
