AWS - Introduction to Cloud Computing

Cloud computing allows you to utilize shared resources available through a service provider. Those resources can be storage space, use of software applications, or servers. You can buy more resources in the cloud if you need to and you can give back resources that you no longer need. In this workshop, you will access Amazon Web Services. You will set up virtual servers, work with cloud file storage, learn about a variety of cloud collaboration options, and much more.  This practical workshop will help you make the transition to working in the cloud from any device, anywhere, anytime.
