Learn the true potential of cloud computing and Linux.
According to rackspace, “Linux is a natural technology for enabling cloud computing because: it's modular, power efficient, reliable, open source, scales to support critical workloads and is ubiquitous. The proof-point for Linux’s success comes in its use: it runs 90% of the public cloud workload, has 62% market share of embedded operating systems, 99% of the supercomputer market share and 82% of all smartphones run on Linux. In addition, every time someone uses Google, they’re using a machine running the Linux kernel.” This course will teach students how Linux is used in the cloud and how to use the Linux operating system in cloud environments with cloud methodologies.
