Cloud Computing

Hi, this is my first post, I have been an IT Support Tech for many years and have now decided to step into the cloud computing world and pursue a career as a Cloud Systems Engineer / Administrator, I'm a novice in Virtualisation and Server Admin and not sure where to begin as I've read that I need experience of up to 2 years of working in a data centre as a pre-req. I'm looking at taking a few courses, VMWare and CompTIA Cloud+

I was wondering whether I can get any advice on where to start, courses to look for, recommended on-line training sites etc. I do have Pluralsight at my disposal, so have been looking on there so far.

Also what provider I should concentrate on AWS or Azure.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cloud computing is a general term that refers to internet-based hosting services. Unlike traditional web hosting, cloud services are provided on-demand, delivered in a flexible manner which means that users can use as much or as little of the service as they need and are fully managed by the service provider. A cloud can also be private or public. A public cloud sells services on the internet to anyone, such as how Amazon Web Services (AWS) operates, while a private cloud provides a limited number of users with hosting services.

What is Cloud Backup?

Cloud backup, also known as online backup or remote backup, is a technique to send a copy of a physical or virtual file or server to a secondary, off-site location in case of equipment failure or disaster. Secondary database and processing systems are typically operated by a third-party service provider who charges a fee to the backup customer based on the storage space and capacity used, bandwidth of data transmission, number of users, number of servers and number of accessed data.

Cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing services -- from applications to storage and processing power -- typically over the internet and on a pay-as-you-go basis.

How does cloud computing work?

Rather than owning their own computing infrastructure or data centers, companies can rent access to anything from applications to storage from a cloud service provider.

One benefit of using cloud computing services is that firms can avoid the upfront cost and complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure, and instead simply pay for what they use, when they use it.

In turn, providers of cloud computing services can benefit from significant economies of scale by delivering the same services to a wide range of customers.

Simply, cloud computing means computing services all over the internet. Instead of having to run that software on their computers. Some simple examples of software are accounting, file storage, shared calendars, shared contacts, etc. So we can use a huge range of cloud computing services such as Dropbox, Google Calendar.

In other, businesses cloud computing includes a lot more than these which we can not enough to write here. Simple examples that you might be familiar with, they include anything ranging from supplying data to supplying testing environments.

The implication of this is that we and other businesses have access to many more computing services, and for a much lower cost because we don't have to pay for the IT equipment, and other more important thing is we should not pay money to the employees and expertise. However, cloud computing has its downsides, Because of all things, there is an issue of data security - you are handing over your data to a third party, you trust the third party to keep your data safe from hackers/frauds and secure (from accidental data loss). For all things, cloud computing provides these types of services and, it offered their services by a cloud computing provider, who would run just one server to serve up calendars for each of the companies. The cloud computing provider only has to run one server to serve all these companies.
