make IT to the Clouds

General description

Have you ever been on cloud nine? Or maybe felt above the clouds or like walking on clouds?

It sounds idyllic and logistically complicated. Why not instead maximise your resources and make IT to the Clouds!

This summer join us in Iasi for an IT experience that will take you beyond the horizon, all the way to the Cloud(s). Be the hero in this incredible journey and discover the romanian engineering that will get the world talking. Cloud Technology is gaining momentum and, it’s safe to say, is becoming a thing of the future brought in our present.

Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.

This cloud model is the basis to our academic summer course.

Besides, don’t forget about the beautiful country with a lot to offer. It would be a total loss not to explore it.

So grab a pen, get your “must go this summer” list and make sure you add this course on it!
