CPD Course: An Introduction to Cloud Computing: Reality and Pitfalls

This session will:

  1. introduce and examine Cloud Computing
  2. describe the software and hardware components from which cloud infrastructure and platforms are constructed
  3. explain the methods for building and managing scalable cloud applications

Case studies drawn from industrial applications of cloud computing will be used throughout to motivate the exploration of cloud service models.

Attendees will gain knowledge about the different types of Cloud Computing service models that exist and will be able to judge which cloud service model (e.g., public, private, hybrid) can be useful for their organisation. They will be able to understand the knowledge and skills that are required to successfully desing and build scalable systems on cloud. The aim of the session is for attendees to leave knowing what is feasible with Cloud Computing and what are the pitfalls that they should we aware of.

Who should attend this session?

The session is particularly suited for decision makers as well as for people who want to gain a better understanding of the topic of Cloud Computing
