NICF- Cloud Computing for Solution Architects

Overview

As cloud computing success stories are becoming more common, demand for good design and architecture is growing. Standards have been raised and practitioners are looking into best practices, open-source products and transparent vendor management strategies.

This course teaches participants how to design a cloud service hosting platform effectively. It discusses how to select the right cloud service model(s) based on given business and technology requirements in a vendor-agnostic manner.

For starters, the course discusses various service models, usage scenarios, and the pros and cons of each service model, before highlighting considerations such as service design, security, data privacy, service metering, logging, storage, monitoring and similar concerns.

The course also touches on the three basic service models, such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). Popular practices and case studies are discussed from the service consumer perspective, in the areas of suitability aspects, application design aspects, application migration from traditional hosting, engineering evaluation, service cataloguing, pricing strategy, service level agreements, governance, outage management and service delivery mechanisms.

On top of that, it looks into the sweet spots and trappings of selected top market offerings, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM's Blue Mix, Google's Google App Engine (GAE), and Microsoft's Azure Cloud Services.

This course is part of the Software Engineering & Design Series offered by NUS-ISS.
