About this Course

In the cloud networking course, we will see what the network needs to do to enable cloud computing. We will explore current practice by talking to leading industry experts, as well as looking into interesting new research that might shape the cloud network’s future. This course will allow us to explore in-depth the challenges for cloud networking—how do we build a network infrastructure that provides the agility to deploy virtual networks on a shared infrastructure, that enables both efficient transfer of big data and low latency communication, and that enables applications to be federated across countries and continents? Examining how these objectives are met will set the stage for the rest of the course. This course places an emphasis on both operations and design rationale—i.e., how things work and why they were designed this way. We're excited to start the course with you and take a look inside what has become the critical communications infrastructure for many applications today....

A phenomenal course on the challenges and solutions of today's Cloud infrastructures. The material is high quality and sourced from the best in the world. I'm extremely satisfied.

Best course ever! Very well-thought-about content. Requires you to go beyond just the videos and assignments. Far far better that course 3 & 4 of Cloud Specialization.

This course was the best in the entire specialisation. The tutors were too good, very very dedicated.

The course on networking with so less labs, it can never help a regular student who wants to work in the industry. Not happy with the course content.

The content of this course is presented more clearly than that of the two courses before it. The tutors are engaging speakers. The programming assignments provide some interaction, which is better than nothing, but they are very unchallenging. Setting up and configuring the VM took more time than the programming.

Excellent content and well thought out Quizzes.

Programming assignments can be made a little more detailed.

Very interesting but a lot of material in few time... very complex to be covered (and to be assimilated)
