What is the Cloud? We hear about it all the time and store the thousands of photos we take of our pets in the cloud, but what does a software storage system that we can’t even see have to do with Information Technology careers?
Like any software, someone has to create the infrastructure and manage the data. We’ll be bringing you career path blogs for all of our Information Technology focus areas. Our first look was in Networking, but today, we’re taking a deep dive into what Cloud career paths are available to you.
What do Cloud careers entail?
Cloud is typically thought of in terms of data storage, but it also provides on-demand computing power and capabilities, occasionally distributed over large areas and in multiple areas. The connections between servers and software databases are all centered around cloud-based systems.
The role of cloud specialists includes infrastructure design, development, and implementation. Additionally, they have been known to manage cloud security and compliance. These professionals work in many systems, primarily in AWS, Google, and Azure, though there are overlapping fundamentals in certain areas.
Cloud is crucial to business infrastructure, and it has been estimated that half of the world’s total data will be held in the cloud by 2025. As a rapidly developing area of expertise, and with enormous numbers, it’s more important than ever that people and businesses are equipped with the tools and knowledge to navigate Cloud infrastructures.
What are Cloud career options?
Cloud systems have been continuously growing in popularity with the development of technology and business standards. From 2015 to 2019 alone, there was a 55% increase in cloud service jobs available. Now, there are thousands of job listings on ZipRecruiter for cloud positions, and all cloud careers offer lucrative salaries as well as opportunities for career development.
