LBUSD Cloud Computing Pathway


Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing.

Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access technology services, such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS)

The Cloud Computing pathway prepares students to establish virtual private networks, managing databases, and storage within a secure online environment.
