CompTIA Cloud+, Part 3 of 8: Understanding Network Infrastructure

with Patrick Loner

Dive into network infrastructure, one of the foundational components of cloud computing environments, beginning with a basic understanding of network infrastructure concepts. In addition to examining the different network types and categories, such as intranets versus extranets and Local Area Networks versus Wide Area Networks, network optimization using network segmentation and the various considerations when it comes to bandwidth and latency will be explored. Finally, as we seek to implement a network infrastructure on which to build our cloud services environment, we will take a close-up look of some of the major foundational concepts behind network routers and network switches including different network ports and protocols that are heavily used for client-to-server communication.
