Data Center Management - Using the example HPI Future SOC Lab
Offerings such as Amazon Webservices (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and most web pages available on the Internet offer easy-to-use services to consumers. But what is required to deliver these services? In this course, we take a look at the data center and learn how to meet the various requirements necessary to deliver the service. From the metal (hardware) to the operating environment (software) to the user, all facets will be highlighted and the practical implementation will be demonstrated using the example of the HPI Future SOC Lab.
