Amazon Web Services, shortened to & commonly referred to as AWS, provided by Amazon, is the world’s leading cloud-based solution provider specializing in various IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) services for building scalable Cloud-based softwares or platforms. AWS offers a wide range of services & solutions to clients like Server configuration & hosting with Amazon EC2, Data storage services with Amazon C3, Scalable performance with Amazon ELB(Elastic Load Balancing), Amazon.s own DNS Service with Amazon Route 53 & CloudWatch to monitor your entire cloud environment within the AWS umbrella. These services are not only entirely deployed in the cloud, making the cost & overhead of physical infrastructure, deployment & data centers a thing of the past, it also ensures scalability at minimum cost & simplicity with everything happening in the cloud, thus having no need to develop one’s own system s for each & every task. What is more, AWS enables users to pay for only the services they choose & not the whole package, which only adds to their popularity.
AWS is a diverse domain so skilled professionals from diverse backgrounds can find employment in AWS. The standard starting point for AWS certified developers is the AWS Certified Solution Associate Architect position, a position highly in demand. IT professionals well versed in networking technologies can find employment within the AWS umbrella as Networking admin, Datacenter technologist or Virtualization Admin.
Cloud computing & networking is an important part of AWS, in which regard AWS is the undisputed market leader. Other choices like Microsoft Azure lag far behind AWS in terms of services, scalability & efficiency. Cloud-based solutions like Cloud data management, Cloud Data recovery & backup services are all offered by AWS. Therefore cloud computing experts & cloud architects are most likely to find employment with AWS certifications rather than with Azure or Openstack certifications.
An AWS certification provides a plethora of job opportunities including, but not limited to, AWS Cloud Architect, AWS Big Dat Specialist, Cloud software engineer, Cloud DevOps Engineer, Cloud Developer, SysOps Administrator, AWS Networking specialist & System integrator. These roles are readily available for anyone having a valid AWS Certification.
