Course description

Monitoring resources is an important duty in any environment, but it’s even more vital when in the cloud. Crucial to ensuring the existence and implementation of effective services, we’ll take a closer look at monitoring and monitoring techniques, as well as the different protocols and the establishment of baselines. Discover how to administer resources in the cloud both locally and remotely, how to allocate visualization resources to hosts and virtual machines, and how to utilize quotas and limits to ensure compliance and an adequate customer experience. Finally, examine the different methods and concepts related to optimizing the performance of your cloud, as well as the vital policies, procedures, and best practices that dictate the cloud computing environment.

Prerequisites

This course assumes you are familiar with the basic concepts of cloud computing, either from completing CompTIA Cloud+ Part 1 course or through outside study.
