Description Cloud computing has become a driving force for information technology over the past several years, and it is moving towards a future in which we won't rely on local computers, but on centralised facilities operated by third-party compute and storage utilities. Governments, research institutes, and industry leaders are rushing to adopt Cloud Computing to solve their ever-increasing computing and storage problems arising in the Internet Age. This unit offers "Academy Cloud Foundations" (ACF) curriculum as part of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Academy. Students will develop knowledge and skills in the areas of virtualization technologies, cloud architecture, AWS core services and their pricing, security, architecture, and support.
