The word “Cloud” no longer refers only to white puffy formations in the sky; technology has transformed the word “cloud” into today’s hottest buzzword. It starts with the word cloud as a metaphor for the Internet: derived from the cloud symbols that often represent the internet on diagrams. Cloud Computing gets a little more hazy, but generally describes a type of internet computing or utility computing and refers to the delivery of computing and storage capacity as a service to a community of recipients.
Vubiz Elearning has launched one of the first online learning courses to explain this important new service and learn how businesses can benefit from cloud computing.
The online module "Cloud Computing: An Introduction" introduces learners to the exciting world of cloud computing. The learner will explore how cloud computing evolved, learn how businesses can benefit from cloud computing, and understand the risks involved in cloud computing. Topics covered in the module include: basic computing attributes; cloud computing defined; the characteristics of cloud computing; the cloud computing service delivery models; cloud implementation models; the financial, technological, and operational benefits of cloud computing; and the risks of cloud computing along with the mitigation of those risks.
