Cloud Computing is reshaping the way we think about data centers and deploy our infrastructure and it is just getting started. DropBox, Google Drive, iCloud, Office 365 have become an essential part of our life. We use these products and services every day - in our daily lives, careers, and businesses. From storing selfies and images in the cloud; our emails in Gmail, our bank records, health records, our business data, files all live in the cloud. Cloud has become an integral part of our lives but you probably haven’t realized it. Even at this moment, you are most likely watching this video streaming from a virtual server deployed in the cloud somewhere.
Cloud computing revolution started only about a decade ago when Amazon launched the AWS platform to "expose technology and product data from Amazon and its affiliates, enabling developers to build innovative and entrepreneurial applications on their own." In the beginning, the platform consisted of only a few disparate tools and services.
But today cloud computing is one of the fastest growing industries across the globe. Many major players have taken a foothold in the field of cloud computing. And they are providing infrastructure and services to businesses at all levels- right from small startups to global giants.
Just look at these amazing numbers:
Simply put, there’s a massive opportunity for people like you to equip yourself with the right skillset so that you can:
Now look at these figures:
We know what you’re thinking… “But don’t these pioneering companies and exciting tech startups need a college degree or certifications to even get my foot in the door?” - not quite. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, said during an interview “There’s no need to even have a degree at all, or even high school certificate...if there’s a track record of exceptional ability”....skill trumps credentials.
The challenge is - where do you learn these skills? Not everyone has the 7+ years to get a Ph.D. in computer science or the patience to self-teach from scattered sources and dense textbooks, not to forget the bank-busting financial investment!. It is about time that the world gets an access to these valuable skills and we need it NOW!
Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing service that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications, and services), which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort.
Cloud computing has tremendous benefits over the traditional infrastructure approaches. Let us quickly summarize them for you:
