Openstack Architect

2Cloud Computing is gaining increasing attention within enterprises of all shapes and sizes, but few technologists actually know how to properly scope, design, and construct Cloud solutions. Taking standard software applications, databases, and user interfaces and deploying them in a Cloud environment is a recipe for disaster. Proper scoping, usage modeling, and careful design are all essential to success in the Cloud.


This OpenStack cloud architecture training will let you gain a deep and practical understanding of the benefits and challenges associated with cloud computing and how to address them at the design stage of your projects. We use the components of the OpenStack project to expose students to cloud deployment best practices and reference example cloud implementations, providing valuable insight for anyone building a new cloud environment through internal program and configurationsProfessionals holding this level of knowledge have continually helped their companies with successful deployments and migrations.

A Candidate is able to perform the following tasks :

  • Deploy and Configure their own public or private cloud without any framework or automation tools
