  20. Manoj says:

    Thanks Ram for the nice short explenation. I have a question what will be the role of a sys admin in this kin of cos who provide cloud service. i have heard that there is cloud computing training given in chennai and Blr by some co. what do you think abt them in a sysadmins point of view,considering that the next hot thing would be cloud computing.
    how can a sysadmin convert to a cloud sysadmin 


  21. Ramdev says:

    @Manoj – The first question we should ask our self is whether we want to become a cloud admin in an enterprise who are either acting as cloud customers or having their own private clouds? … or otherwise do we want to become a sysadmin at cloud vendor side like ( amazon ..etc)?

    In either case you should start with virtualisation concepts, resource management and understand the challenge to migrate physical hosts into virtual hosts.

    At the second level, we have to focus on how to build our own private clouds by integrating various Virtualization technologies, hardware and applications..

    About the training that you mentioned are good place to start but only applicable if your current company having any plans to migrate. But I am not exactly sure how their course curriculum was build and what environment they have for cloud training. During this stage, i would prefer to go with direct vendor certifications .For example IBM enterprise clouds have their own certification and Redhat has their own cloud certifications.
