The course is designed to let the student acquire basic knowledge on architecture, hardware, software, services and development of Cloud Computing technologies. The course walks you through hypervisor virtualization as well as container technology, and explains the difference between the cloud execution environment and cloud management. Telco cloud is discussed in the context of the ETSI NFV standard. The course also covers Software-Defined Networking and describes how NFV and SDN intersects and work together. It is a shorter version of the two-day course “Cloud, NFV and SDN”.
