Course 1: What is the Cloud?


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.

  1. Excellent content. Recommend all participants take the time to listen/view the recorded session, Selling Managed Cloud Into Vertical Markets.

  2. Excellent introduction to Cloud fundamentals.

  3. Great way to test knowledge and learn at the same time.

  4. Excellent.


    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.

  5. What is the Cloud


    Comprehensive and clearly presented. Wide dictionary of cloud phrases and terms. Time well spent.

  6. Great stuff


    Fairly comprehensive and easy to understand intro course. Quiz was also pretty fun to take.

  7. Loved it


    Great information and well structured. It is easy to understand and follow. I love it!

  8. 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.

  9. Course 1


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

  10. Course 1: What is the Cloud!
