WEBVTT (Music) Welcome and thanks for joining us for the overview for this module on Cloud Deployment. We're going to be taking a look at some of the Cloud Deployment basics that you'll need to know. I'm going to be your learner advocate for some of these episodes. My name is Sophie Goodwin, you'll also see Ms. Lauren Deal in this spot as well. We're going to function as a learner advocate for you, so you can follow along at home and hopefully, we'll ask the questions that you might have. But one constant throughout this course, it's going to be Mr. Wes Bryan. He's going to be our subject matter expert. Wes, tell us a little about yourself. Sure. I've been teaching instructor-led training for about 15 years now. I've done a traditional instructor-led training, including things like you're watching now in an online environment. I've been teaching a variety of subjects, Cloud-based subjects, Microsoft subjects, CompTIA subjects, a variety of the industry leading vendors and certification, and then focusing a lot on skills-based training. I'm looking forward to helping you in your journey as you maybe turn your sights on a career or starting out your career in Cloud technologies. A deployment in Cloud technology is definitely a big thing right now, and I think it's only going to continue to get bigger and become more important for us to understand. So Cloud deployment could be broad, it sounds vague. What specifically are we going to be covering in this course? Most definitely, it's a big generic term here, but there are some specifics. We'll look at things like deployment models and examining those various deployment models and some of the considerations around them. We're also going to look at some deployment strategies as well. How do we take our assets and maybe move them and shift them around, whether it's on-prem, in the Cloud, or maybe the vice versa. Maybe you're going from the Cloud back to on-prem, maybe you're going Cloud to Cloud, maybe we're doing some Cloud provider shopping. So we'll look at some of the deployment strategies. We'll also look at Cloud migrations as well, and some of the subtle differences in the terminology and help you understand and identify concepts around performing Cloud migrations. We're also going to look at things too that as big inside of Cloud today, is more of the programmatic control over the infrastructure. So we'll look at things like concepts surrounding code-based Cloud deployment and configuration. How do we provision devices and then how do we perform configurations programmatically? Then finally, what we're going to look at are some considerations around provisioning Cloud resources, and some of the things that you should be able to identify and be aware of all right here in this course. Now, for those that are watching, maybe this is something that you've been working with Cloud related stuff for a while. This is, you know, like the back of your hand, maybe this is the first time you've heard the term Cloud. So when we're coming into this course, where should our skill level be so that we're ready to consume this information? Sure. So from a Cloud standpoint, you don't have to really know much about Cloud, which is good. If you're just starting out or maybe you're already in a support role and you just want to take your skills a little bit farther, well, the good thing is you don't have to have really any training in Cloud. But there are some, there is, I should say some assumed knowledge, right? You have to have an understanding in basic computer, computing environment, right? Computers, servers, workstations, you have to have a basic understanding of networking because we're not really going to dive too much into those concepts. It's going to be assumed that what you're going to find out is, how do those concepts apply to the Cloud, right? Well, we're going to have to know that ahead of time. We're not going to teach you what subnetting is or TCP IP, or what is the difference between a computer and a server, right? You're going to have to know some of that information. But past that, just come with your pen and paper in hand. If you don't have some of these, say you don't have some of those skills. Well, guess what? This is still for you as well. But just keep in mind that you're going to have to backfill some of that information because like Ms. Sophia said, Sophia, Lauren, and myself, we're not going to spend a lot of time in those categories. What we're going to do is assume you already know that information, and then we're going to move and we're going to look at the applicability in the Cloud. Even if you don't, we'd still love to have you join us for this course. But like Wes said, it might just be a little bit more work on your end as you go through these episodes. But as far as just getting a sneak peek into what we're going to talk about, I think that's pretty much going to do it. So Wes, thank you for giving us a heads up into what we can expect in this course on Cloud deployment. Thanks for joining us for this overview, and we'll see you in the course.
