Hello all, I am not even be called a newbie for Cloud hosting. But I heard about this many times, and want to learn and explore new things. So can anyone suggest to me where can I start learning Cloud Hosting? Not about tutorials classes or institutes but what tools are needed to learn.

Thanks for your suggestion in advance!


Well in todays world, cloud hosting is catered towards enabling the ability to build out custom scaleable applications to meet businesses needs for scaleability, reliability and security.
The top cloud providers int he world are Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

In terms of learning you should use the top resources which are the actual provider training options:



Then if you have more you want to know you can look at 3rd party resources similar to ITProTV, ACloudGuru, Youtube, Udemy, Udacity, Edx, and more.

Though, you will probably need to filter down exactly what you are wanting to learn after taking a look into each cloud providers introductory certification material.

If you are wanting to build a cloud you are best off using VMware vCloud Suite, Nutanix, RedHat Cloud Suite, Proxmox Cluster or if you enjoy pain and suffering and an oldschool interface and crazy work you can always go with OpenStack or just build your own technology or use many of the other options out there.

Well, I'm not sure what do you want to achieve learning about Cloud Computing but as far as my experience goes, and I'm looking forward to follow this path as well, I believe Google has some solid foundational courses to get you started with Cloud Hosting.

Since Google has its own cloud platform, I'm sure that after learning a thing or two, you can apply your knowledge on one of the world's most popular cloud platform.

The reason I'm suggesting Google is that it has its own skill assessment program where it assesses your skills and suggests a path from there. Besides, it also offers courses in different domains of cloud computing such as managing APIs, Google Kubernetes, etc.

So I'd suggest you to look it up.


I think first you need to study the very concept of the cloud, what it means, where it is used, what is needed in order to protect yourself from intruders. And only then to study cloud hosting in more detail.


Heard a lot about Microsoft Azure, many companies require knowledge and experience in this cloud service from Microsoft. So you can start studying with him, and then it will be easier to deal with others.

Hi! If you are a beginner, I can recommend Digital Ocean. It is the most budget-friendly of all cloud providers. It offers minimal but sufficient tools for fully automatic resource management.

To answer the question of where to start learning about Cloud Hosting, you need to understand why you need it at all. Many users of this platform can bombard you with topics about what are cool schools and the like, but before choosing one of the schools, heed my advice.
1) Find out what technologies to focus on (the answer to this question can be found on the Cloud Hosting forums or on YouTube)
2) Learn where the technologies of this school are applied (practical examples)
3) Find out if the schools have certificates and who issued them (the Internet is a rookery of deceivers)
4) Get an authoritative opinion about the school.
5) Use social networks as one of the sources of reliable information (only official pages).

If you ask me which school/courses I chose, I would name Udemy and Edx (they have a good base for those who are far from cloud hosting and similar topics).

Cloud hosting is a type of hosting that uses several different servers to spread the load and maximize uptime. Providing access to applications and sites occurs through cloud resources.

The difference from regular webhosting is that solutions are deployed not on one, but on several servers at once. The website is hosted on a network of connected virtual and physical cloud servers, which guarantees flexibility and scalability. This is very convenient, because if one server fails, the other immediately connects, and everything continues to work.

For a better understanding, cloud web hosting can be visualized as follows: imagine a cloud as a network of different computers connected to each other. As the number of devices connected to the network increases, so does the amount of resources in the shared cloud.
Cloud hosting gives access to a part of the so-called cloud cluster. On traditional hosting, access is only to limited space on a single server.

The main advantages of cloud hosting:
Increased uptime
Dedicated Resources
Simple scaling
Dedicated IP address.
