Cloud training options- Many

Cloud computing will generate nearly 14 million new jobs worldwide between 2011 and 2015, as an IDC study funded by Microsoft revealed last year. Another big revelation: There isn't nearly enough cloud talent to go around. A recent survey confirms this finding, with 43% of respondents saying they're struggling to hire engineers and developers with cloud experience.
So what's a cloud provider or vendor to do? Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Rackspace are stepping up their cloud training offerings and certification programs. And vendors like Cisco and EMC are teaming up to promote cloud skills.
Cloud training and certifications are available from many other sources, including CompTIA, the Linux Foundation and Red Hat.


AWS offers a fairly extensive range of role-based cloud training, and recently added a new certification program to recognize IT professionals with the skills and technical knowledge to build and maintain applications and services on the AWS cloud.


Rackspace has expanded its cloud training beyond Cloud U by launching an Open Cloud Academy boot camp in San Antonio to teach cloud skills that are in high demand: Linux,virtualization, hypervisors, APIs, continuous integration and security in the cloud.

Cisco and EMC

In early 2012, Cisco and EMC announced an educational partnership to promote cloud, virtualization, storage, data center networking and data science. They've since launched an extensive portfolio of training and certifications to provide a solid foundation in data center infrastructure, as well as high-value areas of cloud and virtualization.
As the industry evolves to keep pace with complex multivendor architectures and skill sets, new job roles are emerging, so Cisco and EMC plan to continue adding corresponding certifications. For complete story see here
