What’s a Cloud (VMware Definition), and where can I learn all about it May 13, 2012Posted by vbry21 in VMware Training.
What is Cloud Computing?
I discovered this on the vCloud Director Course from VMware.
Define Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing is a method and approach to computing that leverages the efficient pooling of on-demand, self-managed virtual infrastructure consumed as a service.
Private Cloud, this is an infrastructure operated solely for an organisation, usually this would be contained within the firewall
Public Cloud, this is a deployment that is accessible over the internet for general consumption.
Hybrid Cloud, is a composition of multiple interoperable clouds, enabling data and application portability.
We hear so much about the cloud, but let’s face it there’s no one definition, the above definition is one I learned from VMware. I’m sure everyone has their own definition. My daughters definition of a cloud is a white and fluffy thing that floats in the sky.
The course I mentioned above however teaches how to configure VMware’s vCloud Director 1.5 product.
The course teaches Installing, Configuring and managing the product, click the link below to get the course outline.
