It can get a group of people working on any project to build a platform for sharing data in relatively a very short time (one or two days) and with a minimal investment.
 This course will help students build each private cloud storage and provide access to the stored data with minimal cost and in a very short time. The course provides a basic knowledge of Information Technology networking needed to build a private cloud service.
