Hybrid Cloud, Distributed Cloud and Edge Computing training

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Some companies are reluctant to make the move to the Cloud. The benefits and the maturity of the CSPs (Cloud Service Providers) are increasing while the difficulties and dangers of maintaining your own IT are getting bigger. The move to the Cloud is not without risk, security in the Cloud is a shared responsibility. This Hybrid Cloud, Distributed Cloud and Edge Computing training will help you to migrate to the Cloud safely and explains the latest trends in Cloud Computing.

This training is meant for Product Owners, (business) managers and IT engineers.

You can find a detailed agenda at the end of this page. This webinar is also part of our Masterclass Digital Transformation. This training is also offered by our international partner Global Knowledge, click here.

In comparison to a few years ago compliance to rules and regulations by the CSPs (like PCI/DSS or GDPR) has improved considerably. Some CSPs even encrypt all data in transport and rest within the Cloud. However, the move to the cloud remains a matter of confidence.

But threats like fishing mails, DDOS attacks and advanced threats like the Solarwinds hack are the rule rather than the exception. It makes you wonder if you are not safer in the Cloud. When the right conditions are in place and you use the appropriate tools (like CASB and SASE) security can be more effective in the Cloud than in your own datacenter.

Although many companies believe the move to the cloud is a cost deduction, you have to keep a tight control. Elasticity is one of the advantages of the Cloud but it can double your costs within a couple of days easily. It is not in the interest of your CSP to keep your costs as low as possible. In this training we will show you the tools to control your costs.

Distributed cloud is the future of cloud” – Gartner Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2021

It is now possible to reserve your own hardware in the public Cloud (if you pay of course!).  That’s where the Distributed Cloud comes in. Another thing: location is important, especially with the rise of IoT, edge AI (Artificial Intelligence) and everybody working from home. A trend in security is to move the check of an identity and it’s access rights (of a user or device) to the edge. All these factors increase the importance of performance at the edge to ensure user satisfaction. Latency (delay on the network) can be an issue when you move to the public Cloud.

Edge Computing has been a trend for Telcos but will play an important role in Cloud Computing. It is important your CSP offers Points of Presence (PoP) as close as possible to the end-user. At first, this PoP might be exclusive for one customer/consumer. It means having your own hardware close to the user AND maintenance and service offerings by your CSP (depending on your CSP).
