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.
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
