Training for the Future of Cloud Computing
Spend any time around those in the hosting industry, and you might quickly find the conversation turns to OpenStack, the set of software tools for building and managing cloud computing platforms.
Built for public and private clouds, and backed by some of the biggest companies in software development an dhosting, it's been argued that the open-source project is the future of cloud computing. To get there of course, the initiative needs to ensure that the community is properly trained and that's exactly what's now available.
The OpenStack Foundation today announced a new professional certification program that is meant to provide a baseline assessment of knowledge and be accessible to OpenStack professionals.
“This OpenStack professional certification program addresses the need for well-trained and highly qualified OpenStack administrators,” said Jonathan Bryce, executive director, OpenStack Foundation. “We expect COA certification to become a valuable credential that any hiring manager would want to see on the resume of viable candidate. Further, it is our hope that the OpenStack professional certification program will encourage new entrants into the OpenStack community and expand the talent pool within the industry.”
