Computer Information Technologies - AAS: Cloud Computing Technologies Track
The Cloud Computing Technologies Track covers the fundamentals of building IT infrastructure using cloud-based technologies. The track is designed to teach future cloud technologists how to optimize the use of cloud-based services and how these services fit into cloud-based solutions. Because architectural solutions can differ depending on industry, type of applications, and size of business, this track emphasizes best practices for cloud technologies, and it recommends various design patterns to help you think through the process of architecting optimal IT cloud-based solutions. Within the Cloud Computing Technologies Track there is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) course sequence that is designed to prepare you to pass the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification Exam and the AWS Cloud Architect Certification Exam.
