Learn Cloud Computing with my free online training videos.

You can find my Cloud Computing tutorials and Cloud training videos on this page. Full descriptions with screenshots are also included with each video if you prefer the content in a text format.

You can learn about the Essential Characteristics of Cloud services, the Cloud Service Models of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and XaaS,  and the Cloud Deployment Models of Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud and Community Cloud. I also explain the advantages of Cloud Computing and show you how to do a TCO cost comparison when choosing between an On Premise or Cloud deployment for a real world workload.
