Cloud Computing Specialization

Starts Dec 18

Cloud Computing Specialization

Cloud Computing Specialization

Clouds, Distributed Systems, Networking. Learn about and build distributed and networked systems for clouds and big data.

About This Specialization

The Cloud Computing Specialization takes you on a tour through cloud computing systems. We start in in the middle layer with Cloud Computing Concepts covering core distributed systems concepts used inside clouds, move to the upper layer of Cloud Applications and finally to the lower layer of Cloud Networking. We conclude with a project that allows you to apply the skills you've learned throughout the courses. The first four courses in this Specialization form the lecture component of courses in our online Master of Computer Science Degree in Data Science. You can apply to the degree program either before or after you begin the Specialization.
