About this course

Cloud networking helps enterprises deliver information rapidly, reliably, and securely without bearing the cost of building and operating their own networks. In this course, you'll investigate the process of migrating to a cloud computing model from a legacy one. You'll explore the concept of a VPC, the key technologies to isolate VPCs from public clouds, and the CSP interface types to manage VPCs. Moving on, you'll examine how a DMZ works in the cloud and how to isolate a single DMZ network from others. You'll also explore how firewalls, the intrusion detection system, and virtual network interfaces work in the cloud. You'll then outline when and how to attach multiple network interfaces to an instance. Lastly, you'll investigate how SDN and DNS work in the cloud, use AWS to set up a VPN, and connect to cloud resources using various protocols. This course can be used in preparation for the CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ (CLO-002) certification exam.
