Summary | ITL3 A3.1 |
This video will summarise some of what you've learnt from the 'What is Cloud Computing?' Video series.
Hello and welcome to the final lecture within this course, which will recap some of the main points at a high level that I raised throughout the previous lectures. And within these lectures, we learned that cloud computing is a remote virtual pool of on-demand shared resources offering compute, storage, database, and network services that can be rapidly deployed at scale. Cloud computing is based on virtualized technology. Typical cloud foundational resources fall under the categories of compute, storage, database, and network. And there are three main cloud deployment models, these being public, private, and hybrid. The main concepts of cloud computing are on-demand, scalability, economies of scale, flexibility, growth, utility-based metering, shared infrastructure, highly available, and security as shared responsibility. And there are three main cloud service models, infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, and software as a service.
And there are a number of different use cases for cloud computing, and among them are migration of production services, traffic bursting, backup and disaster recovery, web hosting, test and development environments, proof of concepts, and big data and data manipulation. That has now brought me to the end of this lecture and to the end of this course. I hope you now have a greater understanding of what cloud computing is and how it can be used, deployed, and the benefits it offers offer a typical data center deployment.

Thank you for your time and good luck with your continued learning of cloud computing. Thank you.
