FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is Cloud Computing ?

Cloud computing is Internet based computing where virtual shared servers provide software, infrastructure, platform,devices and other resources and hosting to customers on a pay-as-you-use basis. All information that a digitized system has to offer is provided as a service in the cloud computing model. Users can access these services available on the “Internet cloud” without having any previous know-how on managing the resources involved. Thus, users can concentrate more on their core business processes rather than spending time and gaining knowledge on resources needed to manage their business processes.

Cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure; rather they rent the usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use. Most cloud computing infrastructures consist of services delivered through common centres and built on servers.Sharing resources amongst can improve, as servers are not unnecessarily left idle, which can reduce costs significantly while increasing the speed of application development.

What is SaaS/PaaS/IaaS ?

• Software as a service (SaaS)

Cloud-based application or software as a service (Saas) runs on distant computers that are owned and operated by Cloud service providers. Users can use this service on pay-per-use basis via the internet, usually a web browser.

• Platform as a service (PaaS)

Platform as a service provides a Cloud-based environment with everything required to support the complete lifecycle of building and delivering web-based (Cloud) applications, without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware, software, provisioning and hosting.

• Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a service provides companies with computing resources including servers, networking, storage and data center space on a pay-per-use basis.

What is AWS ?

Amazon Web Services, or AWS, is a cloud computing platform from Amazon that provides customers with a wide array of cloud services. Among the cloud options offered by Amazon AWS are Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon SimpleDB, etc.

Amazon first debuted its Amazon Web Services in 2006 as a way to enable the use of online services by client-side applications or other websites via HTTP,REST or SOAP protocols. Amazon bills its customers on the basis of usage of the various Amazon Web Services.

Why Learn AWS ?

AWS has :-

• Diverse customer base.

• Broadest range of use-cases (cloud native applications, e-business hosting, general business applications, enterprise applications, development environments and batch computing).

• Large tech partner ecosystem including software vendors that integrated their solutions with AWS.

• Extensive network of partners that provide app development expertise, managed service and professional services such as Data-Migration.

• Richest array of IaaS and PaaS capabilities.

• Rapid service offerings and higher level solutions expansion.

Amazon has been in the business the longest time compared to the other two giants, Microsoft and Google, and this gave them a first-mover advantage in what Amazon has called the cloud virtuous cycle: value based pricing → more customers → more usage → more infrastructure → economies of scale → lower infrastructure costs → continued innovation/back to value.

Do you offer LAB Practices ?

Yes, each Course that we offer has its own Learning Path which includes several LAB-sessions (Practice on Production-Level Cloud Servers, Real-Time Task Assignments & POC.)

I’m a 2nd/3rd/4th year B.Tech Student. How will this Training help me today & in future ?

In today’s competitive IT World, it has become mandatory to have extra technical skill-sets that will give you the edge w.r.t. your College Curricullam, Project-Works and also during Campus Interviews (or Off-Campus Interviews.) At Zero To One Cloud we’re not just training you on latest Cloud Tecnologies but for College Students we have our “College & Beyond Program” where we will talk about the IT MNC Work-Culture globally.
Here you’ll learn about different departments inside an IT-MNC. You’ll also learn about departments such as Sales/Pre-Sales/RnD/QA-Testing/Development-Operations/Client-Services/etc & how these departments work together as a company, what types of meetings/conferences are held inside an IT-MNC, how each department operates its day-2-day activities. In-short you’ll learn the IT-MNC Trends and Work-Culture.

This program will prepare you in-advance to adapt to the work-culture that lies ahead of your graduation and you’d also be aware in-advance about various Job-Roles that you can target in future.

We will ensure that post training-completion we conduct quizzes & mock-interviews so that our candidates develop the right-mindset to appear for IT-MNC interviews and clear them eventually.

Why a 2nd Year B.Tech/BCA student should consider learning Cloud Computing with AWS ?

Prime Time of Your Life. Now, Live It !!

We encourage 2nd Year Engineering/BCA students to explore our Training Programs so that these individuals may also have an opportunity to experience Technology & Training at its very best and that too during the prime time of their lives. Just imagine being in your 2nd year of B.Tech/BCA and already working on Client-Projects, gaining Industrial Experience and earning at the same time for your efforts. By the time you enter into your 3rd year you would already be working as an AWS Cloud Freelancer in the world-market completely on your own. Also, we’ll ALWAYS be there for you (even post-training) when you need our guidance/expertise w.r.t. your on-going freelance project works.

Why get AWS Certified ?

Those attempting to navigate their cloud-careers must take specific paths and understand that certain skill-sets are valued more than the others.

In an office space we rarely come face to face will ‘all’ Amazon Web Services, hence we have structured our “AWS Certification – Preparation Path” in a way such that our candidates are able to interact with all major Amazon Web Services and also attempt our Quizzes/Mock-Exams which are a part of our Professional Training Courses. Later, these professionals can attempt and clear the AWS Certification Exam which would certainly put them ahead of the rest of the Cloud Engineers.

Professionals with at-least 1 yr of work experience can aim for ‘AWS Certification Exam.’

What is DevOps ?

DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support.

Agile software development paved the way, steering away from the waterfall method of software development towards a continuous development cycle but it didn’t include the operations-side so while development could be continuous, deployment was still waterfall-oriented.

In a DevOps environment, cross functionality, shared responsibilities and trust are promoted. DevOps essentially extends the continuous development goals of the Agile movement to continuous integration and release. In order to accommodate continuous releases, DevOps encourages automation of the change, configuration and release processes.
