This technical training class includes hands-on workshops. Proof points from actual implementations and workloads are used to help you make architecture choices to design an effective solution on Bluemix Infrastructure's (formerly Softlayer) Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Proof points from actual implementations are used to help you make architecture choices to design an effective solution. For each workload, a structured design process will be followed, including: Analyzing business drivers and workload requirements Making architecture decisions and justifying the choices Designing the infrastructure Creating the detailed design The workloads?application hosting with e-commerce and social collaboration?have been selected because of common business application elements and workload characteristics that are pertinent across industries. Each workload infrastructure is designed to give you an extensive overview of SoftLayer?s capabilities, which you can use when designing your own IaaS solution. The infrastructure designs are presented to the class to encourage facilitated discussion, which will help reinforce understanding, approach, and application of architecture principles. You will be guided through an initial workload on e-commerce, given assistance with a second workload on social collaboration, and apply what you have learned to a third workload on big data and cost optimization.
Infrastructure Leaders, IT Operations Manager/Systems Administration, IT Security Management, IT Strategy & Enterprise Architecture, Solution/Software Architecture
This course is designed to teach you how to:
Apply SoftLayer capabilities in a structured process to meet workload characteristics
Weigh architecture design alternatives in order to meet business goals, including scalability, availability, and cost effectiveness
Justify the choices made and the benefits to be gained
Architect a design to meet your workload needs, based on the presented scenarios
Guided analysis of e-commerce needs using a client case study
Make the architecture choices: moving from an architecture to a component viewpoint
Identify key infrastructure requirements
Design the infrastructure
Create the detailed design
Applying the process: summarize the process, technologies selected, and lessons learned
Instructors will guide you through the e-commerce infrastructure design and decisions, including compute, storage, network, security, and other choices. You will view the infrastructure design from its component and functional levels to a logical diagram.
Assisted analysis of a social collaboration workload using a client case study
For each architecture decision:
Discuss the problem statement
Evaluate the possible alternatives
Justify the decision made
Determine the architectural decisions for:
Instructors will assist and consult with you on a social collaboration infrastructure design and decisions, including compute, storage, network, security, and other choices. You will present your group's findings to the class, get feedback, and provide feedback to the findings of the other groups.
Apply What You Have Learned to a Third Workload
Analyze a big data and cost optimization workload using a client case study
Evaluate possible component alternatives
Justify the decisions made
Determine the architectural decisions for
Present your group's findings to the class, get feedback, and provide feedback to the findings of the other groups. Your work group will collaborate on a big data and cost optimization workload design, including compute, storage, network, security, and other choices. Your group's findings will be presented to the class, get feedback, and provide feedback to the findings of the other groups.
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
