New on Cloud Academy, November ’17: Scenario-Based Learning Paths

Building on public clouds often means finding the best solution to a business problem. Understanding how to evaluate requirements, consider options and recommend the right approach comes with experience. Cloud Academy’s scenario-based learning paths give you and your team exposure to how experts tackle real-world challenges and the opportunity to hone those skills yourselves.

Scenarios are hands-on and interactive, combining video courses, brainstorming sessions, chalk talks, live console labs, and quiz sessions.

Selecting a Cloud Platform and Designing a Highly Available Business Solution

With practice building cloud solutions comes the expertise you need to determine which services will work best to deliver on a particular requirement. Sit shoulder-to-shoulder with experienced professionals designing a cloud solution. This scenario starts by covering requirements, priorities, and constraints. Next, the team evaluates how different platforms—AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform—could be used to meet those requirements, and design solution architectures. Finally, see how to run a price comparison and build a proof of concept. Interactive discussions give you insight into the decision-making process, and labs give you hands-on experience building solutions.
