iSAQB® CLOUDINFRA - Infrastructure, Container & Cloud-Native

It is a matter of various factors how to design and produce a software system. Through container managers, containers, as well as microservices, there have been strong changes in requirements, as well as pre-conditions, over the course of time. An up-to-date application today must be placeable, dynamic, scalable, as well as mistake-tolerant.

In addition, the software must work smoothly in a cluster consisting of multiple nodes. We deal in the software architecture training iSAQB® CLOUDINFRA for example with the topics: Infrastructure and Cloud Native Containers. The new curriculum module in the iSAQB Advanced Level program also addresses the significant question: How to design, as well as deploy, adaptable cloud infrastructures?

Cloud infrastructure involves the use of virtualized IT resources that can be scaled dynamically and elastically to meet the changing needs of the business. Cloud infrastructure also includes a variety of services such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that provide companies with the ability to quickly and easily access and utilize IT resources.

How does CLOUDINFRA help companies achieve their goals?

Cloud infrastructure can help companies achieve their goals in various ways. Some of the ways that cloud infrastructure can contribute are:

  • Increased efficiency: Cloud infrastructure can help companies optimize their processes and workflows and increase their efficiency. By quickly providing resources and services, companies can quickly respond to changing requirements.
  • Cost reduction: Cloud infrastructure can help companies reduce costs by only paying for the resources they actually need and not having to maintain physical hardware.
  • Scalability: Cloud infrastructure can help companies quickly and easily scale resources to meet changing requirements. Companies can quickly deploy new applications and services without adding physical hardware.
  • Flexibility: Cloud infrastructure offers companies a wide range of tools and services that enable them to quickly and easily develop and deploy new applications. This allows companies to be more flexible in responding to changing market requirements.

How can I prepare for the exam?

To prepare for an exam in the field of cloud infrastructure, you could take the following steps:

Create a study plan: Create a study plan that helps you prepare for all the topics and areas covered in the exam. Divide the study plan into smaller, manageable units so that you can study more effectively and focus better.

Use official resources: Use official resources such as textbooks, manuals, and online courses provided by the exam providers. These resources often offer comprehensive and detailed coverage of the topics covered in the exam.

Use additional learning resources: Use additional learning resources such as trade journals, online forums, and communities to deepen your understanding of the topics and prepare for specific areas of the exam.

Practice with exam questions: Use exam questions and practice exams to familiarize yourself with the format of the exam and test your understanding of the topics.

How is the exam carried out?

The certification authority will send you the examination task after consulting you, which you have to solve after about 40 working hours. The solution of the task must be documented.

Within three months of receiving the assignment, the homework must be returned to the certification center. The certification center will then inform the examinee of the deadline for submission of the assignment when it is sent to him/her. Earlier submission is possible. If the term paper is not returned by the deadline, this part of the examination is deemed to have been unsuccessful.

In this connection, in addition to adherence to a deadline, the entire deadline of the examination must also be observed. If it is violated, the entire exam is considered failed - regardless of whether or not one has met the three-month deadline.

Two independent examiners are appointed by the certification center and you are given the solution to check. Then the examiners talk to you by phone. In the conversation, you have to explain and present your solution. You will be presented with the CPSA-A® certificate by the certification authority when the examiners confirm that the solution meets the guidelines, is well documented, and has been explained and successfully defended. You can take the exam in English or German.
