Your future cloud computing skills: AWS + Google + Azure + ecosystem

Grazed from CloudAcademy.  Author: Editorial Staff.

2014 will be the year of cloud computing.  During the last year we heard about cloud in different situations, often referring a change in how companies and people access and store data. From what I see this change is almost completed.

If I look at the number of services that I use on a daily basis, more than 80% of them are storing and computing data in a cloud computing infrastructure. I cannot even say what is the last time that I used a licensed-software on my PC/Mac. Everything runs on a browser: invoices, payrolls, bank, docs, files.  We have already switched to a Cloud model for all of our data and daily operations...

Over the last year, Piston has been training users on the setup, administration and management of OpenStack from our home city of San Francisco. This two-day course has been a great way for us to share our expertise and hear about how companies are using OpenStack inside their organizations, but holding it here in San Francisco meant that access was limited to those with the time and budget to travel.

I’m happy to announce that Piston’s training program is now available online, and our first course, “OpenStack 101,” is scheduled for August 28th. We’re accepting registrations now. This three-hour interactive instructor-led course will cover everything from the basics of cloud computing to a comprehensive look at the components of OpenStack.

Cloud Computing: Eucalyptus Open Sources Services & Training

Grazed from Sys Con Media.  Author: Maureen O'Gara.

Eucalyptus, the open source private cloud platform partnered with Amazon to give people hybrid clouds, has found selling support and professional services, the usual way an open source company makes money, isn't working as a business because would-be customers are too tight-fisted.  As a result it didn't grow as much as expected last year.

So it's regrouping. It's open sourcing its services and training, CEO Marten Mickos said, to focus on its product business, where it's seeing early indications of large cloud implementations and the potential for a big business thanks in part to its alliance with Amazon, whose APIs are the recognized cloud standard...

Grazed from CMSWire. Author: Anthony Myers.

IDC consulting has produced a cloud-based worker study for Microsoft, and the focus is on how new skill sets are still not prevalent enough in the workforce. More cloud-ready, if you will, workers are needed to fill many positions as businesses continue to shift to the cloud.

Job Growth

A similar study was conducted last year by IDC, also for Microsoft, on how many jobs the cloud will help produce. The numbers are impressive, but now that we know there is a huge demand for cloud-based workers, it seems those fully trained people are in short supply...
