Course Summary

Cloud Architecture is the way technology components combine to build a cloud, in which resources are pooled through virtualization technology and shared across a network. Currently every organisation in different sectors is working to enable their products cloud enabled. Cloud enables any global enterprise to deliver its services in a more user-friendly manner. This course will discuss different types of architecture in cloud. The solutions can be in core system level or in application level. This course will cover a wide range of Cloud System Design and Architecture topics, beginning with their fundamentals.

We are seeing reinvention across almost every industry due to cloud. This is not surprising given that evidence suggests that cloud adoption boosts an organisation’s ability to innovate, reimagine customer experiences, and make high velocity decisions in an increasingly dynamic world. The global cloud computing market size is expected to grow from US $445.3 billion in 2021 to US $947.3 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.3% during the forecast period. India is also becoming a home for SaaS businesses; the Indian SaaS ecosystem is now the third largest in the world and is expected to fulfil 11% of the global SaaS demand by 2025, as per a Chiratae-Zinnov Study.
