What is cloud engineer?

If you’re aspiring to become a cloud architect or a cloud engineer or even a cloud manager right and we’ll finally look at how great learning and retakes together can help you in getting up to that particular no aspired position or your next career transition right so I hope that that the agenda becomes a little clearer if you have any questions to start with I’m happy to answer now do you guys any of you have questions as yet okay so no questions now all right let’s start in that case.

If you look at the first slide here really don’t have a title slide right I don’t have a slide just telling you the name of this particular session and so on just to keep it really simple and straightforward and to drag the point with what the market leaders are saying right so what people like phones and Gartner and even the best of the companies write Microsoft Amazon Google Oracle Alibaba everybody’s saying the future is cloud right.

Now when you say the future is cloud it’s really not entirely true because the present is also cloud right that’s what I mean not just the future the present also is cloud and as you will see in the following slides more than 90% of organizations with small-large and medium are using cloud and some of the other form and not just organizations it’s also individuals individual professionals students at universities everybody is literally using cloud and some of the other form right.

What are people telling here so it’s a four hundred billion-plus dollar market, so globally that’s a huge market to be a part of as a professional as a company it also shows you the amount of investment that people are doing as far as cloud is concerned almost over 80 80 percent of the workloads of enterprise workloads will be sent to cloud by next year right it’s already 2019 so almost all the workloads in enterprises are going to cloud right they already are and they will continue to do so more than 80 percent of companies have a multi-cloud strategy forget using one cloud right.

What we are saying here is four out of every fifth company is using more than one cloud platform right it’s not just one cloud platform, so the approach has matured the number of options has grown the number of use cases people need to use has grown over time and the number of professionals because of all these reasons the number of professionals that companies need will continue to grow right in the next three four-five years now in India specifically the cloud services market has over four billion dollars right.

This will increase definitely with the adoption of all kinds of services that you have on the cloud including advanced services like IoT machine learning AI etc right some of you might even be surprised that even things like satellite imaging will come as a service and cloud right very recently in fact if you read about you know what ADA braces up to recently even if you want the satellite out there to grab some images or do some weather forecasting for yourself even as an individual you can go and get a cloud service for that right.

So that’s really fascinating with what L options do we have on the cloud right so I hope this sets the initial understanding and context of how exciting and how broad and promising this cloud market has become and it is certainly a great time for you if you really interest it in something that’s cloud to become a cloud professional right now let’s understand what is stored in the first place okay there are a lot of definitions if you go to Wikipedia there’s a definition if you go to n is T which is an us-based standards organization there’s another definition but to put it in an in a layman’s term right cloud is essentially a different way of how you consume your IT services right.

Everything else remains the same in principle right when I say that you still have computed you still have you know microprocessors you have storage Ram hard drives network cable subnet all of that stuff as far as computer computers are concerned computing and its science is concerned and as far as programming is concerned all of that is same right so if you’re an infrastructure person a few things will change right.

How you do your job will also change when you talk about cloud but what you want to as he really doesn’t change that much right you still want reliability you still want efficiency you still want scalability still want a backup server you still want you to know geolocation and being close to the customer and all of that right, so the cloud is really a different way to use information technology and its services right so both hardware and software right so when you talk about cloud it’s really a utility model, okay it’s a leased based model it’s a model where you can consume something which is created by somebody else right so, for example, this is very clear examples you can think about electricity right.

If you want electricity tomorrow in a house that you recently purchased you don’t have to set up a power station for that right you can simply apply for a connection and start consuming electricity similarly if you have a new electronic device two more if you buy a new refrigerator or you know even an electric car for example again you don’t have to set up a power station you can simply plug that refrigerator into a socket which essentially is a plug-and-play model and you can start consuming electricity.

Now take this analogy into computing and think about if you wanted an extra machine is there a plug-and-play model right can you just call up somebody can you just go to a website write a digital socket in that case and just plug and say hey I want an extra computer can you give it to me for like two days I want to run an experiment right, so that’s what cloud is you need something either hardware or software right you get it for X amount of time it could be a year it could be five years it could be you know five hours you use it and then you give it back to the owner right.

For example, if you’re not consuming electricity somebody else will right so if you’re not using a cloud resource, of course, somebody else will unless you have reserved it okay, so that’s in very simple terms that’s what cloud essentially is it’s a utility model of computing it’s a model of computing where you can get services both hardware and software from a service provider which we call cloud provider right so it’s the least based model, of course, there are a lot of other aspects to it without going into that I just wanted to you know kind of help you understand what cloud is in very simple terms.

Now, what our company is doing with cloud why is it so famous if you look at the last two decades there have been a lot of revolutions one is the hardware evolution right if you look at the networking equipment’s if you look at the switches and routers that you have if you look at the telecom boom if you look at the data speeds that you have now if you look at the satellite evolution the number of satellites India’s launching if we look at the cost of a hard drive right that has gone way cheaper if you look at the amount of RAM storage that you have in your smartphones.
