EMC Cloud Infrastructure & Services

Track Room Location: U235


This “train the trainer” track will prepare faculty to teach the technology-based EMC Cloud Infrastructure and Services (CIS) course offered through participating in the EMC Academic Alliance program. CIS covers the principles and concepts of virtualization and cloud infrastructure technologies. The course is ideal for gaining a broad understanding of the transition from classic data center, to virtualized data center, to the cloud. In addition, it prepares faculty for the EMC Cloud Infrastructure and Services certification exam (E20-002).

This course will educate faculty about cloud deployment and service models, cloud infrastructure, and the key considerations in migrating to cloud computing.

For all definitions of cloud computing, the course has resorted to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology as a guide.

The course covers technologies required to build classic (traditional), virtualized, and cloud data center environments. These technologies include compute, storage, networking, desktop and application virtualization. Additional areas of focus include backup/recovery, business continuity, security, and management.

Faculty will learn about the key considerations and steps involved in transitioning from the current state of their data center to a cloud computing environment. Upon completing this course, faculty will have the knowledge to make informed decisions about migrating to cloud infrastructure and choosing the best deployment model for their organization.

Faculty will receive a complimentary copy of the CIS course book. Faculty who are participating in the EMC Academic Alliance program will receive the teaching and learning aids to deliver the course including PowerPoints and facilitator guide, videos, course lesson planning, activities, and more …


Prior to attending this course, participants should have:

  • Basic understanding of computer architecture, operating systems, networking, and databases
  • Experience in compute system storage, and network infrastructure will be an advantage
