AWS Fundamentals for CDP Public Cloud


About This Course

The cloud has transformed the way that organizations manage their infrastructure. The revolutionary new Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) natively supports major cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, enabling our customers to effortlessly deploy and scale workloads while protecting data and keeping costs under control.

Despite the many benefits the cloud makes possible, getting started with the cloud can be challenging. Not only are there multiple cloud providers, the fact that AWS alone offers more than 175 distinct services illustrates how simply finding the relevant services can be an overwhelming task.

This course was designed to solve exactly this problem. During this course, you'll learn the key concepts behind cloud infrastructure, including the benefits, tradeoffs, and costs associated with running your workloads in the cloud. You'll also learn about the specific services, such as EC2 and S3, that are relevant to running Cloudera's products and services on AWS.
