5 Cloud Course Teaching Platforms

5 Cloud Course Teaching Platforms

Though Cloud Computing has been in the offing for some years now, its inner core is still enshrouded in a cloak of mystery as people only see the surface. One of the more important sides of the service include the platform, which is useful for teaching the fundamentals of the technology that ties together all networks in a developing cloud. Though the platform is important for developing concepts and doing practical work, it is, however, still the best stepping stone for learning about the subject. This is because app-based platforms are always evolving.

There have been many brands that have come up to replenish the role of Platform as a Service (PaaS) which is the application arm of the cloud. They approach the technology from various angles, which suit particular business models, while others are mere development platforms for stats.

Here are five of the leading platforms that use cloud courses as their teaching models.

Appistry

For slightly more than a decade, this platform has targeted courses that rely mainly on PaaS. It helps to expand the usability of current software. While students use it to learn more on how to think outside the box when employing an already functional application, it also helps them to make their own contributions.

Companies keen to reduce their operational costs can use this teaching model to improve their technicians’ knowledge. By doing this, they will no longer have to rely on rented app stages on the public cloud. The technicians can come up with industry-specific apps that can help a tech entity meet its challenges, head on, without relying on generic software.

Windows Azure

This Microsoft-based cloud course teaching platform is the quintessential example of knowing both the fundamentals of network interactions and all about hosting. It also pays especial attention to the architectural bit of cloud computing. This is through its presence as a dynamic option for hosting information remotely while tapping into dynamic technology without any need to install the same in one’s personal computer.

Because of its long-term existence, the Azure has entrenched itself as a perfect example of what it means to scale the network and experiment with it. If one needs to leverage on the performance of his/her organization, they just need to rent more space, tap into more apps and employ them on a pay-as-you-use basis. It is no wonder then that it should be a beginner’s workbook while at the same time great for Information Technology experts who want to learn more.

AppScale

This is a search engine-based platform that mainly helps in the deployment section of the cloud, meaning when choosing a private, web-based or hybrid area of operation. Though compatible to many networks, it is mainly perfected for the particular search engine’s horde of related software.

As a teaching course, the platform switches gears and concentrates more on app profiling rather than mere deployment. It helps learners to know how they can change particular software essentials so that through this profiling, the programs can work in another cloud setting other than the one they were originally intended for.

AT&T

Among the platforms that serve as the cloud course teaching areas, this particular one exemplifies how one can be independent and still be on a free-for-all World Wide Web. One does not even have to be in the Private Cloud to manage their affairs. This provider helps to supervise the access and core infrastructural layers, provides the machines, and remotely hosts them.

However, because it allows those using the service to come up with their own stats and tools, it can be a perfect way to learn how to improve on software. It’s also serving as a good example of how IT students can get savvy with managing their own databases, though from a remote locale. They would also learn how there are no contractual details in this arrangement, where users come and go as they like as long as they provide the usual live-renting costs.

Amazon EC2

For those who want a cloud course on a very functional and flexible platform, then this is the one to seek. It helps to understand how one can contract and expand space as need be. It also enables one to comprehend how to maintain an operational scope for a business depending on the current economical climate: when the going gets tough, a user contracts the rental space and vice versa.

It is also a way out for IT enthusiasts who want to test new applications, upload something huge, and manage other affairs, expeditiously, before closing them again in a matter of fractions of minutes. This is the way to go for those who need to be in a web setting where they can make hosting decisions quickly.

There goes the curtain to some of the platforms that have proved to be worthy learning courses in the Cloud. All, in their different ways, embrace particular learning environments like infrastructure, deployment or the platform aspect itself.
