Cloud Engineer is an IT professional
The amount of data created by an ever-advancing world is staggering. Just about everything you do on your phone or computer creates data. Every purchase in every store creates data. Watching Netflix or Hulu creates data. Even taking a walk, if you have your phone with you, creates data if you have the location setting turned on.
With all this data, companies need a way to store, manage, access, and interpret the data. And since most of it is stored on cloud platforms, cloud engineers are the ones to do it. As a result, knowing the SQL standard, which is the foundation for many query languages, is important. But also knowing some of the common database technologies like Hadoop, MongoDB, and MySql is important as well. You can find a comprehensive list of the top cloud databases here. Computer Systems Having general knowledge about “computer systems” engineering is another strong skill to have. Understanding operating systems, virtualization concepts in compute (e.g. hypervisors, containers), networking (DNS, load balancing, software defined networking), storage (block vs. object), global and regional deployment strategies, etc. will make you a well rounded cloud engineer.
DevOps Developmental Operations is not exclusive to cloud computing, but it has become the central methodology for software development in a cloud computing environment. DevOps is a methodology that takes the entire software lifecycle into account including planning, use, and maintenance and is a must-know methodology for anyone involved with cloud computing.
