The Cloud Governance Specialist certification track is associated with the following courses and the courses can be delivered via instructor-led training.

CCP Module 1: Fundamental Cloud Computing

This foundational course provides end-to-end coverage of fundamental cloud computing topics as they pertain to both technology and business considerations. The course content is divided into a series of modular sections, each of which is accompanied by one or more hands-on exercises.
The following primary topics are covered:
– Fundamental Cloud Computing Terminology and Concepts
– Basics of Virtualization
– Specific Characteristics that Define a Cloud
– Understanding Elasticity, Resiliency, On-Demand and Measured Usage
– Benefits, Challenges and Risks of Contemporary Cloud Computing Platforms and Cloud Services
– Cloud Resource Administrator and Cloud Service Owner Roles

– Business Cost Metrics and Formulas for Comparing and Calculating Cloud and On-Premise Solution Costs
– Formulas for Calculating and Rating SLA Quality of Service Characteristics

CCP Module 2: Cloud Technology Concepts

This course explores a range of the most important and relevant technology-related topics that pertain to contemporary cloud computing platforms. The course content does not get into implementation or programming details, but instead keeps coverage at a conceptual level, focusing on topics that address cloud service architecture, cloud security threats and technologies, virtualization and containerization.
Proven technologies are defined and classified as concrete architectural building blocks called “mechanisms”. The purpose of this course is to introduce cloud computing-related technology topics in a manner that is accessible to a wide range of IT professionals, as well as to empower participants with an understanding of the fundamental mechanics of a cloud platform, how the different “moving parts” can be combined, and how to address common threats and pitfalls.
The following primary topics are covered:
– Cloud Computing Mechanisms that Establish Architectural Building Blocks
– Virtual Servers, Containers, Ready-Made Environments, Failover Systems & Pay-Per-Use Monitors
– Automated Scaling Listeners, Multi-Device Brokers & Resource Replication
– Understanding How Individual Cloud Computing Mechanisms Support Cloud Characteristics
– An Introduction to Containerization, Container Hosting & Logical Pod Containers
– A Comparison of Containerization and Virtualization
– Cloud Balancing and Cloud Bursting Architectures
– Common Risks, Threats and Vulnerabilities of Cloud-based Services & Cloud-hosted Solutions
– Cloud Security Mechanisms used to Counter Threats and Attacks
– Understanding Cloud-Based Security Groups and Hardened Virtual Server Images
– Cloud Service Implementation Mediums (including Web Services and REST Services)
– Cloud Storage Benefits and Challenges, Cloud Storage Services, Technologies and Approaches
– Non-Relational (NoSQL) Storage Compared to Relational Storage
– Cloud Service Testing Considerations and Testing Types
– Service Grids and Autonomic Computing
– Cloud Computing Industry Standards Organizations

CCP Module 3: Fundamental Cloud Virtualization

This course provides solid, end-to-end, foundational coverage of virtualization technologies, types and mechanisms. Core topic areas pertaining to the fundamental virtualization mechanisms and types used within contemporary cloud computing platforms are explored, along with various key performance indicators and related metrics.
The following primary topics are covered:
– A Brief history of Virtualization
– Virtualization Concepts and Definitions
– Traditional vs. Contemporary Virtualization
– 10 Virtualization Types
– Data Center, Storage, Application, Desktop, Network, Server, etc.
– 18 Virtualization Mechanisms
– Virtualization Agent, Virtual Server State Manager, Virtual Appliance, Virtual Firewall, etc.
– Virtual Machines, Hypervisor Drill-Down
– vCPU, vRAM, vDisk, Virtual to Virtual Conversion
– Thick and Think Provisioning, Virtual Switches, NIC Teaming
– Service Virtualization ROI and Strategic Benefits
– Virtualization Considerations for Cloud Providers and Consumers
– Resource Pooling and Management, Virtual Infrastructure and Management
– Monitoring and KPIs
– Capacity Planning and Management Considerations

CCP Module 4: Advanced Cloud Virtualization

This course builds upon Module 16 by exploring a range of industry practices and management and design topics for cloud-based contemporary virtualization environments, by breaking them down into design patterns and technologies that can be combined to form common cloud-based technology architectures and solutions.
The following primary topics are covered:
– Connectivity and Accessibility Considerations
– Virtual Server and Virtual Switch Isolation
– NAT/Host and External Connectivity
– Performance, Capacity and Scaling Considerations
– Direct I/O and Single Root I/O Virtualization
– LUN Access and NIC Teaming
– Elastic Resources and Resource Workload Management
– Load Balanced Virtual Server and Virtual Switches
– Different Forms of Virtual Server and Host Affinity/Non-Affinity
– Memory Over-Committing and Power Consumption Reduction
– Failover and Recovery and Zero Downtime
– Resource Pooling and Reservation and Auto Crash Recovery
– Hypervisor Clustering and Redundant Physical Connections
– Migration and Relocation Considerations
– Cross-Hypervisor Workload Mobility and Non-Disruptive Service Relocation
– Persistent Virtual Network Configurations and Virtual Server Folder Migration
– Virtual Disk Splitting and Stateless Hypervisors

CCP Module 5: Cloud Virtualization Lab

This course module presents participants with a series of exercises and problems that are designed to test their ability to apply their knowledge of topics covered previously in course modules 16 and 17. Completing this lab will help highlight areas that require further attention and will further prove hands-on proficiency in cloud computing virtualization mechanisms, patterns, technologies and platforms as they are applied and combined to solve real-world problems.
As a hands-on lab, this course provides a set of detailed exercises that require participants to solve a number of inter-related problems, with the ultimate goal of evaluating, designing and correcting cloud virtualization technology architectures to fulfill specific sets of solution and business automation requirements.
For instructor-led delivery of this lab course, the Certified Cloud Trainer works closely with participants to ensure that all exercises are carried out completely and accurately. Attendees can voluntarily have exercises reviewed and graded as part of the class completion.
For individual completion of this course as part of the Module 18 Study Kit, a number of supplements are provided to help participants carry out exercises with guidance and resource references.

Duration: 5 days
