Who is a Cloud Architect?

In this episode, we will discuss career opportunities in cloud computing and share a 5 step learning path for becoming a Cloud Architect.

Over the last decade, technology has evolved at a rapid pace.

New technologies like AI, Blockchain, Serverless Computing, and Cloud Computing are opening-up diverse job opportunities and raising the demand for skilled professionals.

In many ways, these technologies aren’t just creating new jobs but changing the very nature of the job market itself.

The only way to capture this amazing opportunity is for professionals to be ahead of the curve.

Despite the recent historical events, 2020 is going to be an exciting time for professionals to stay updated with tech trends and acquire new tech skills.

The cloud is being adopted at an increasing rate, and it is expected to become a 400 billion dollar business by 2021, globally.

Almost every organization today has some form of cloud implementation, thus making it one of the most sought-after skills.

We have identified that becoming a Cloud Architect is the best way to stay ahead of the curve and seize the opportunity.

Once Cloud Computing becomes widely adopted, there will be a great demand for Cloud Architects. So you might have two questions in your mind now.

What does a Cloud Architect do? How can I become a Cloud Architect?

A Cloud Architect is responsible for the following things:

  1. Setting up all of the components required for a successful cloud deployment.
  2. Create cloud networks by connecting remote servers, set up both front-end and back-end platforms, and develop an operational cloud-based delivery system.

3.Set up cloud storage and computing systems from scratch, ensuring system compliance and security policy adherence

Now that you have understood what a cloud architect does let’s look at the skills needed to become one.

The following are the top 10 skills needed for a cloud architect.

Database skills, Programming skills, Linux, DevOps, Cloud Migration

Automation, Serverless Architecture, Quality Assurance, Information Security, AI

Did I intimidate you with this list? Don’t worry; it is not as tough as it seems.

While the skill list involves multiple domains, you don’t necessarily need very in-depth knowledge or experiences with each of the domains.

The more important skill of a Cloud Architect is to have a big-picture mindset and orchestrate the different parts of the cloud deployment.

Now that you have got all the information regarding the expected skillsets, you might be confused about how to start upskilling.

Don’t worry; I will explain a learning path for you now.
I hope you have a pen and paper ready!

First, you need to become proficient in at least one of the Operating Systems like Windows or Linux.

We advise you to go with Linux, as most of the cloud servers run on Linux.

The second step is to learn and get hands-on experience, either on Python, JavaScript, or .NET.

You should also learn SQL.

In the third step, you should learn the fundamentals of networking, virtual networks, and other networking functions to understand the back-end cloud infrastructure.

The fourth step would be to learn the basics of DevOps & AI.

The fifth and final step would be to Master a cloud platform, like AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud Platform.

We highly recommend you to learn at least 2 of the top 3 cloud platforms.

Furthermore, if you want to signal to potential recruiters, getting a cloud certification is also good, but make sure you have a portfolio of cloud projects to showcase.

Having a certification is good for landing the interview, but not necessarily the job.

That is all, folks. If you like this video, smash the subscribe button and ring the bell to be updated about our future video releases.

  1. I’m really inspired with your writing talents as smartly as with the layout on your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to peer a great weblog like this one nowadays.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thank you!

  3. I run a vape store directory site and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that likewise offers for sale CBD products. A Calendar month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop website directory. We do not offer CBD goods such as CBD oil. We solely provide internet marketing services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health and wellness Retailer and if you take a good look, you will witness that they promote a rather considerable range of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is applying double standards to many different companies. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has limited my payment options and right now, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is altogether against the law and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am yet to consult with another legal representative from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
