University Down Under Offers Cloud Computing Course Program
Cloud computing has been a lifesaver for the industry of general computing and information technology. One day, cloud computing services will replace standard web server machines as many businesses, organizations, and individuals alike have counted largely on the cloud in terms of file sharing, file storage, web hosting, and more. While that time hasn’t come yet, a few institutions from some parts of the world are already offering cloud computing and infrastructure courses for future developers to take advantage of this open and innovative technology.
University of Washington was the first to offer a certificate course in cloud computing back in August of last year. Just recently, Australia’s Bond University will be offering the “Infrastructure” course in both undergraduate and post-graduate levels as a response from a high demand for cloud computing-skilled individuals from the industry. As cloud computing continues to emerge as a huge benefit for all types of businesses and organizations for different purposes, the demand for individuals with knowledge and background for this cost-effective medium continues to skyrocket. Institutions are now answering to this call and from time to time are now offering courses that would create opportunities for those who wish to continue to innovate the cloud industry.
Australia is no stranger to cloud computing as it is one of the leading countries around the world in terms of the IT industry. Established players in the industry including Amazon and Rackspace have operating branches in Australia, as well as locally grown rivals like Ninecloud. Even before when cloud computing was first introduced to businesses and organizations, the Australian government became one of the first to give full support to the development of the industry to their country’s technologies and infrastructure. With this, the course program would not have a hard time to gain students and take advantage of this brand-new curriculum.Continued on the next page
