Module 1: Cloud Characteristics and Models
This module starts by describing common cloud characteristics. Cloud computing is drastically changing the way IT and data centers are being architected today. Lesson 1, "Describe Common Cloud Characteristics," introduces the technical concepts needed, including NIST’s cloud definitions, and also cites the main milestones that enabled the evolution of computer science to this modern service delivery model. Lesson 2, "Describe Cloud Service Models," presents cloud computing classifications based on their offering (Infrastructure as a Service [IaaS], Platform as a Service [PaaS], and Software as a Service [SaaS]) and examples for each of them.
