Hi everyone! Although I can't really consider myself a newbie when it comes to cloud hosting, I've heard a lot about it and I'm eager to discover and learn new things. Could anybody recommend where to start with learning about cloud hosting?
 I'm not looking for tutorials, classes or institutes, but rather the tools that are essential in mastering this subject.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions!


In today's world, cloud hosting is focused on providing businesses with the ability to create custom scalable applications that fulfill their needs for reliability, scalability, and security. The leading cloud providers in the industry are Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.

To learn more about cloud hosting, it's recommended to make use of the training options offered by these cloud providers.

For AWS, you can visit https://www.aws.training/learninglibrary.
For Azure, you can visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/azure/.
For Google Cloud, visit https://cloud.google.com/training.

If you need further knowledge on the subject, you can refer to third-party learning resources like ITProTV, ACloudGuru, YouTube, Udemy, Udacity, Edx, and others. After reviewing the introductory certification materials provided by each cloud provider, you'll be better equipped to determine what specific information you need.

If you're interested in building your own cloud, we recommend using VMware vCloud Suite, Nutanix, RedHat Cloud Suite, Proxmox Cluster, or exploring other options. However, if you prefer a more challenging and old-school approach, you could also try OpenStack or building your own technology.

I'm not exactly sure what your goals are in learning about Cloud Computing, but in my experience, Google has some excellent foundational courses that are a great starting point for Cloud Hosting.

Google's cloud platform is one of the most popular in the world so having knowledge of it would be beneficial.

The reason I'm recommending Google is because they offer a skill assessment program that evaluates your current skill level and recommends a learning path based on that. Additionally, they also provide courses that cover various aspects of cloud computing like managing APIs, Google Kubernetes, etc.

Overall, I highly recommend that you check out Google's offerings.


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 utilizes multiple servers to distribute the workload and ensure maximum uptime, allowing applications and websites to be accessed through cloud resources.

Unlike traditional web hosting, cloud hosting deploys solutions across multiple servers to provide a network of virtual and physical cloud servers that offer flexibility and scalability. If one server malfunctions, another server can immediately take over, ensuring consistent performance.

To visualize cloud web hosting, imagine a cloud as a network of interconnected computers. As more devices are connected to the network, more resources are available in the shared cloud. In contrast, traditional hosting only provides access to limited space on a single server.

Cloud hosting provides access to a portion of a "cloud cluster" and offers key benefits such as increased uptime, dedicated resources, simplicity in scaling, and a dedicated IP address.
