During this session, you’ll learn what the cloud is, how it works, and what the benefits to moving to the cloud are! With today’s evolving technological landscape, chances are you’ve heard of the term “cloud.” You may have even wondered why anyone would be talking about the weather along with computing infrastructures and data centers. Although the popularity of the cloud has gradually risen, there are many who still don’t know exactly what it is.

    Course 1


    I think video’s and more pictures to demonstrate the differences between the virtualizations would help. Overall good!

    Frustrating but effective


    Gave a very strong overview of what the cloud is. However, I was very frustrated at the software that runs Rapid Scale University. I am learning about how great the cloud is and about PaaS, yet the training platform is busted! I had to retake the whole thing because it would not submit my survey! Anyway, great content. I look forward to taking more.

    I would give 5 stars but the “save” button needs fine tuning or debugging. Great content. I feel more confident already. Looking forward to the next course.
