Cloud Computing Infrastructure
About this courseSkip About this course
As Cloud Computing shapes businesses of all sizes, it is vital to understand the technologies behind cloud infrastructure, both public and private.
This course, part of the Cloud Computing MicroMasters program, focuses on components of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud service model. These components include: compute, storage, network, and auxiliary services. The class will also discuss most popular cloud IaaS deployment architectures.
You will examine these IaaS issues in depth, and then apply the acquired knowledge in 2 lab projects to migrate a website to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) IaaS environment, deploy the necessary infrastructure, install and configure the web server, set up the website, and monitor the deployment in action.
This course is part of the Cloud Computing MicroMaster’s program from UMGC. Upon completion of the program and receipt of the verified MicroMaster’s certificate, learners may then transition into the full UMGC Master’s Program in Cloud Computing Architecture. See the MicroMasters program page for more.

Frequently Asked QuestionsSkip Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a student have to apply to and complete the full UMGC degree?
To ensure that your program remains relevant and up-to-date, UMGC sets time limits for completing a program. Students have five (5) consecutive years from the start of the graduate degree to complete their degree. For students who start with a MicroMasters, their “time clock” begins on the date that they complete their last course in the MicroMasters program and receive their Verified Certificate. This means that students should apply to UMGC promptly to begin the degree and have as much time as possible to complete it.
