EMC Cloud Infrastructure and Services

Track Room Location: Room H123, Heritage Hall (Collin College's Preston Ridge campus)

This “train the trainer” track will prepare faculty to teach the technology-based Cloud Infrastructure and Services (CIS) course offered through participating in the EMC Academic Alliance program and provide the hands-on experience to do the online CIS labs available through Network Development Group (NDG). Further, it prepares faculty to become an EMC Proven Professional Cloud Infrastructure and Services Associate.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the phases of transition from classic data center to virtual data center to the Cloud
  • Describe virtualization technology at compute, storage, network, desktop, and application layers of IT infrastructure
  • Describe business continuity solutions in a VDC environment
  • Explain the key characteristics, services and deployment models for the Cloud computing
  • Describe the Cloud infrastructure components and service management processes
  • Recall the Cloud security concerns and solutions
  • List the key considerations for migration to the Cloud

To understand the content and successfully complete this course, faculty should have knowledge and skills associated with the following:

  • Basic understanding of computer architecture, operating system, networking and database
  • Experience in Compute system, storage and network infrastructure will be an added advantage


Mike Murphy is a professor at Foothill College in the Computer Science Department. He also teaches at the Foothill College Kraus Center for Innovation at Foothill College. In the past, he has been a senior programmer at IBM. Mike and Foothill were the first public educational institution in California to offer EMC ISM course.

This class provides ICT faculty with the widest spectrum of topics starting from Classic Data Center to IT-as-a-Service. It is a “technology-based” course covering cloud deployment and service models, cloud infrastructure, and the key considerations in migrating to cloud computing. Providing 40 hours of content, the CIS course provides the required technology essentials across all domains—including server, storage, networking, applications, and databases—to help develop a strong understanding of virtualization and cloud computing technologies.

Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the EMC CIS spiral bound student guide that contains PowerPoint presentations and notes. Faculty who are participating in the EMC Academic Alliance program will receive the teaching and learning aids to deliver the course including PowerPoints and facilitator guide for each chapter, videos, course lesson planning, and more …

The training qualifies you to take the Cloud Infrastructure and Services certification exam (E20-002), and each attendee will receive 63% discounted exam voucher.

Labs Planned for EMC CIS Course by NDG

Lab exercises will be conducted via NETLAB+ remote lab setup. NDG’s remote access solution, NETLAB+, enables academic institutions to host remote computing labs comprised of virtual topologies.

The following online labs that will be taught to support the CIS course via NETLAB+ are:

  • Lab 1 – Understanding RAID
  • Lab 2 – Block-level and File-level Storage
  • Lab 3 – Backup and Recovery Concepts
  • Lab 4 – Replication and Deduplication
  • Lab 5 – vSphere and vCenter
  • Lab 6 – vSphere Datastore Implementation
  • Lab 7 – vSwitches – Networking in the VDC
  • Lab 8 – Benefits of vMotion and Storage vMotion
  • Lab 9 – VMware HA and VMware FT
