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?


Learning Content & Curriculum of the Training

In the iSAQB® CLOUDINFRA - Infrastructure, Containers & Cloud-Native module, trainees will learn the basics of modern infrastructures. In addition, we also explain the common cloud-native architectures, distributed applications, containers, as well as microservice architectures. By using the typical concepts of current container managers, the CLOUDINFRA iSAQB® module teaches participants how to implement common quality requirements of larger web applications. 

In the CLOUDINFRA iSAQB® training, participants learn the important factors of common architecture types. Moreover, you will understand the mutual interaction of architectures in terms of processes, technologies as well as organizations. All common cloud providers are also classified and the possibilities for automation are shown. Also, all the approaches of the application lifecycle, as well as software development are discussed in the training.

In the iSAQB Advanced Level module, everyone focuses on key points also new tendencies. All certifications are always done as homework. An expert assigned by the iSAQB evaluates the homework and performs the oral examination.

  • Basics of Modern Software Infrastructures (2 hours)
  • Common Architecture Concepts (2 hours)
  • Cloud Native Journey (4 hours)
  • Development, CI/CD and Operations (4 hours)
  • Useful patterns (4 hours)
  • Automation (2 hours)
  • Case Study (2 hours)


What are the goals of CLOUDINFRA Training?

Following the training, you will understand which cloud services are available and how you can use them for your own applications. Most importantly, you will learn about the automation potential in the cloud and how container managers enable this automation. At the end of the training, you will be able to build and operate a cloud native application architecture.

What can CLOUDINFRA graduates do?

  • Design an original, also methodically well-grounded design of medium to large IT systems.
  • Take on technical and content-related responsibility in IT systems of medium to high complexity.
  • Conceptualize, design, and document measures to achieve non-functional requirements. Assist development teams in the implementation of the measures. 
  • Steering and execution of an architecture-relevant communication in medium to large development teams. 

Procedure of Exam & Certificate

Licensed by the iSAQB®, the seminar will contribute to your admission to the final Advanced Level Certification Exam (CPSA-A). With your participation in our 3-day seminar iSAQB® CLOUDINFRA - Infrastructure, Containers & Cloud-Native you will receive 30 credit points - 20 in the technical area and 10 in the methodological area. Additionally, you will receive a qualified certificate of attendance.


For Whom is the CLOUDINFRA Training Suitable?

The training is suited for software developers and architects who design systems as well as develop them. These individuals have already gained practical experience with IT projects. No knowledge of a specific technology or programming language is required. If knowledge of web technologies is already available it is advantageous, however this is not a necessary prerequisite.

What are the Participation Requirements for the Training?

There are no mandatory requirements.

Attendees should be able to design and develop a small to medium sized software system. You should already have hands-on experience with the maintenance and/or further development of software systems. Participants should also be comfortable working with a container. For an understanding of some underlying concepts, the following knowledge is advantageous: 
Practical experience/knowledge of starting up or developing modern microservices architectures.

Is Tectrain an Accredited Training Provider?

Yes, we are an accredited iSAQB® training provider.  You will receive credit points at the end of the certification exam. 

What Do I Need to Know About Credit Points?

Every 12 months the credit points can be re-evaluated by the iSAQB®. Therefore, one should keep this in mind when planning the training activity over several years. It can affect the training measures and the distribution. If necessary, points can be omitted in one of the three areas, which is why the area must then be covered in another seminar. However, there have been very few changes here so far.

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.

Are there also remote seminars?

Since the corona pandemic, many training courses are also offered remotely, regardless of location. That is why a remote exam is the logical step. You can also take a remote exam with us. The exam is taken remotely and controlled by an examiner. They log on to the computer of the examinee and observe him or her with the camera. This eliminates the need for travel. This procedure also avoids abuse, which could occur with an online examination that is not supervised.
In some certification procedures, it is also possible for the examinee to visit a TestCenter or a public examination in order to take the exam under personal supervision.

Where Does The Trainings Take Place?

We offer a variety of training options. Especially in this day and age, we want to offer participants suitable options. Therefore, we offer our courses online, on-site and also as hybrid models.
