Course Description

Certified Cloud Architect has demonstrated proficiency in the technology architecture that underlies cloud platforms and cloud-based IT resources and solutions, and has mastered the hands-on application of design patterns, principles, and practices used to engineer and evolve such environments.

To achieve this certification, the following exams must be completed with a passing grade:

  • Exam C90.01: Fundamental Cloud Computing
  • Exam C90.02: Cloud Technology Concepts
  • Exam C90.04: Fundamental Cloud Architecture
  • Exam C90.05: Advanced Cloud Architecture
  • Exam C90.06: Cloud Architecture Lab

Note that all certification requirements and course contents are reviewed and revised quarterly to stay in alignment with industry developments.

Course Objectives

This course provides a highly technical drill-down into the inner workings and mechanics of foundational cloud computing platforms. Private and public cloud environments are dissected into concrete, componentized building blocks (referred to as “patterns”) that individually represent platform feature-sets, functions and/or artifacts, and are collectively applied to establish distinct technology architecture layers.

Building upon these foundations, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) environments are further explored as compound patterns, comprised of unique and shared building blocks. The course is structured as a guided tour through these architectural layers, describing primary components, highlighting shared components and explaining how building blocks can be assembled and implemented via cloud computing mechanisms and practices.

The following primary topics are covered:

  • Technology Architectural Layers of Cloud Environments
  • Public and Private Cloud Technology Architecture
  • laaS, PaaS and SaaS Technology Architecture
  • Cloud Computing Mechanisms as part of Platform and Solution Technology Architectures
  • Bare-Metal and Elastic Disk Provisioning
  • Multipath Resource Access, Broad Access and Intelligent Automation Engines
  • Usage and Pay-as-You-Go Monitoring
  • Platform Provisioning and Rapid Provisioning
  • Resource Management and Realtime Resource Availability
  • Shared Resources, Resource Pools and Resource Reservation
  • Self-Service and Usage and Administration Portals
  • Workload Distribution and Service State Management

Other technology architecture topics pertaining to cloud platforms, cloud-based solutions and services are also explored.

Target Audience

This course explores a range of the most important and relevant technology-related topics that pertain to contemporary cloud computing platforms and architectural structures. The course is therefore primarily intended for (Cloud) Architects.


This course prepares participants for the following five examinations:

  • Exam C90.01: Fundamental Cloud Computing
  • Exam C90.02: Cloud Technology Concepts
  • Exam C90.04: Fundamental Cloud Architecture
  • Exam C90.05: Advanced Cloud Architecture
  • Exam C90.06: Cloud Architecture Lab

Only upon successful completion of all three examinations, will you receive the Certified Cloud Architect Certification. Every exam is multiple choice and can be taken online or in a Pearson Vue test center. Pink Elephant will provide you with an exam voucher for the examination.

There are no pre-requisites for this course. Some fundamental knowledge about computers is recommended.

Pink Elephant will provide you with exam vouchers. With these vouchers, you can register for the exam at any moment of your convenience.

Due to the in-depth nature of this course, the course is available in classroom format.

Learning Material

Certified Cloud Architect Study Materials

Participants will receive five official course booklets that are necessary to complete the course (one course booklet per day). The course booklets contain all the necessary study materials, slides and sample questions to adequately prepare for the examination.
