Overview:

In this course, you will learn how to implement, maintain, and deliver cloud technologies including network, storage, and virtualization technologies to create cloud solutions.

Prerequisite(s):

Students must complete the Firewall 9.0 Essentials: Configuration and Management (EDU210) class and be familiar with Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall management and basic networking concepts, including routing and IP addressing.

Audience:

This course is designed for IT professionals who wish to develop cloud computing skills to enable them to move IT workloads to the cloud and integrate products and services from different providers and industries. Their focus is to ensure that cloud deployments are secure, that automation and orchestration are used effectively to bring business value from the cloud, and that costs are controlled through effective management of cloud vendors.

This course is also designed for students who are preparing to take the CompTIA Cloud+ certification exam CV0-002, or who plan to use Cloud+ as the foundation for more advanced cloud certifications or career roles.
