Cloud – building block of all tech
Cloud computing has become an essential component of modern businesses, and it is present in almost every industry today. With the increased adoption of digital technologies, cloud computing has emerged as a game-changer, enabling companies to store and access data and applications on remote servers instead of on-premises infrastructure. This allows organizations to reduce their costs and increase efficiency, as they can access their resources from anywhere, at any time. Cloud computing provides scalability, flexibility, and security to businesses of all sizes, making it a preferred choice for companies across various sectors, including healthcare, finance, education, and manufacturing. It enables businesses to leverage advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things, to enhance their services and products. Today cloud computing has become a critical component for businesses to stay competitive and adapt to the changing market dynamics.
Azure- the global Computer

Technologies taken under ACS
For the year 2023 we will be taking up few of the products/services of Azure which are extremely useful for engineering students. Our set of experts have identified below technologies
- Azure Fundamentals
- Azure Storage Services
- Azure Data Services
- Virtual Machines (VM)
- Cognitive Services including Azure OpenAI Service
Azure Fundamentals is a beginner-level course that provides an introduction to Microsoft Azure, including its features and services. Participants will learn about cloud computing and its benefits, as well as explore different Azure services such as compute, storage, and databases. This course is ideal for those who want to start their journey with Azure and gain foundational knowledge.
Azure Data Services is a suite of cloud-based data management and analytics services provided by Microsoft Azure. With Azure Data Services, you can store, process, and analyze your data in a scalable and cost-effective way. You can build modern data applications, integrate with other Azure services, and leverage advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities to gain insights and make informed decisions.
The Azure Certification Program (ACP) at Vision Institute of Technology (VIT) offers hands-on training in the latest Azure technologies for engineering students. The program is designed to help students become proficient in cloud computing and earn their Azure certification. Day 1 begins with an introduction to cloud computing and an overview of Microsoft Azure, followed by a hands-on lab session. On Day 2, students will learn about successful cloud implementations and receive an introduction to Azure Storage. Day 3 focuses on Azure Data Services and includes a hands-on lab session. By the end of the program, students will have a deep understanding of Azure technologies and will be well-prepared for diving further in cloud!.
The Azure Storage platform is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution for modern data storage scenarios. Azure Storage offers highly available, massively scalable, durable, and secure storage for a variety of data objects in the cloud. Azure Storage data objects are accessible from anywhere in the world over HTTP or HTTPS via a REST API. At Azure Certification Series of VIT we give you hands on training on various aspects of building & hosting Azure Data Services
Virtual Machines (VMs) are software-based emulations of physical computer systems that run on top of a physical host machine. They provide a virtualized environment for running operating systems and applications, and offer benefits such as increased flexibility, scalability, reliability, security, and cost-effectiveness. VMs are a popular solution for hosting and running applications at remote locations, as they can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. At VIT Azure Certification Course we give you hands on training on various aspects of building & hosting VM on Azure
