iSAQB CPSA-Advanced Infrastructure, Container and Cloud Native (CLOUDINFRA)

Course Description

In this accredited iSAQB® Infrastructure, Containers & Cloud-Native (CLOUDINFRA) training, participants will learn the basics of modern software infrastructures. Participants will learn the typical concepts of cloud-native, distributed applications, including containers, microservices, self-contained systems, etc., as well as how to implement common quality requirements of larger applications.

In the CLOUDINFRA training, participants learn the important factors of common architecture types. Moreover, they will understand the trade-offs of architectures in terms of processes, technologies, and organizations. Common cloud providers are also classified. The corresponding approaches for  software development, automation, and application lifecycle maintenance are also discussed in the training.

This training is conducted in cooperation with tectrain.

Seminar goals

  • Design an original, methodically justified design of medium to large IT systems.
  • Assign technical and domain-related responsibility within IT systems of medium to high complexity.
  • Conceptualize, design, and document measures to achieve quality requirements. Assist development teams in the implementation of these measures.
  • Management and execution of an architecturally relevant communication in medium to large development teams.

Course Content

This accredited training is based on the current ISAQB® syllabus for the iSAQB® module Cloud Infrastructure (CLOUDINFRA).

  • Basics of Modern Software Infrastructures
  • Common Architecture Concepts
  • Cloud Native Journey
  • Development, CI/CD and Operations
  • Useful patterns
  • Automation
  • Case Study


The iSAQB® Certified Professional for Software Architecture (CPSA) program offers participants an internationally recognized, standardized training for software architecture.

This training course is part of the Advanced Level Program of iSAQB.
