Advanced Cloud Architecture

Module 5
Advanced Cloud Architecture

This course builds upon CCP Module 4 to provide a deep dive into elastic, resilient and multitenant technology architectures, as well as specialized solution architectures, such as cloud bursting and cloud balancing.

Through the study of architectural mechanisms, industry technologies and design patterns, both core and extended components are described that combine to realize elasticity, resiliency and multitenancy as primary characteristics of cloud platforms. By leveraging these native and enhanced scalability and failover-related feature-sets, specialized solution architectures are described to enable bursting between clouds and on-premise and cloud environments, as well as the balancing of runtime loads across clouds for performance and failover purposes.

As with Module 4, the course organizes content so that architectural layers are explored sequentially and, where appropriate, in relation to each other. Newly introduced primary components are described and shared components across architectural layers are highlighted.

The following primary topics are covered:

  • Elastic Environment
  • Resilient Environment
  • Multitenant Environment
  • Direct I/O Access and Direct LUN Access
  • Dynamic Data Normalization
  • Zero Downtime and Storage Maintenance Window
  • Load Balanced Virtual Servers
  • Burst In, Burst Out and Cloud Bursting
  • Cloud Balancing
  • Redundant Storage and Storage Workload Management
  • Elastic Disk Provisioning, Elastic Resource Capacity and Elastic Network Capacity
  • Intra-Storage and Cross-Storage Device Vertical Tiering
  • Redundant Physical Connections for Virtual Servers and Persistent Virtual Network Configurations
  • Load Balanced Virtual Switches and Service Load Balancing
  • Hypervisor Cluster
  • Dynamic Failure and Recovery
  • Synchronized Operating State
  • Resource Reservation

Other technology architecture topics pertaining to cloud platforms, cloud-based solutions and services are also explored.

Duration: 1 Day

About the Text Books

This CCP course module covers a range of in-depth topics that are described in the course booklets and further elaborated by detailed technical coverage and case study examples in the associated Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture, Cloud Computing Design Patterns text books from the acclaimed Prentice Hall Service Technology Series from Thomas Erl.

Certifications

This course corresponds to Exam C90.05, which is required for the following certifications:

Vendor-Neutral Topic Overview

Note that all CCP course modules are focused on vendor-neutral Cloud topics and therefore do not provide detailed coverage of any vendor-specific platforms or technologies. CCP courses are intentionally authored this way so as to provide an unambiguous and objective understanding of Cloud practices and technology that can be further complemented with product-specific training.
