Part of administering a cloud implementation is ensuring that correct resources are available and that users can access them in a timely manner. In this course, you'll focus on managing the cloud provider data center, including the allocation and monitoring of physical and virtual resources, the implementation of a disaster recovery and high availability strategy, and the tools provided for remote access of hosts and virtual machines. This course is one in a series of Skillsoft courses in the learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Cloud+ CV0-001 certification exam.

Target Audience
This CompTIA Cloud+ training course is targeted toward IT personnel with at least 24 to 36 months of IT experience in networking, storage, or data center administration. Good computer literacy along with a sound technical acumen should be present. It is also suitable for students looking to acquire job skills and to be trained specifically to pass the associated CompTIA Cloud+ certification exam. It is recommended, but not required, that candidates for the CompTIA Cloud+ exam obtain the CompTIA Network+ and/or CompTIA Storage+ certifications or equivalent knowledge.
