Cloud Computing is reshaping the way we think about data centers and deploy our infrastructure and it is just getting started. DropBox, Google Drive, iCloud, Office 365 have become an essential part of our life. We use these products and services every day - in our daily lives, careers, and businesses. From storing selfies and images in the cloud; our emails in Gmail, our bank records, health records, our business data, files all live in the cloud. Cloud has become an integral part of our lives but you probably haven’t realized it. Even at this moment, you are most likely watching this video streaming from a virtual server deployed in the cloud somewhere.

Cloud computing revolution started only about a decade ago when Amazon launched the AWS platform to "expose technology and product data from Amazon and its affiliates, enabling developers to build innovative and entrepreneurial applications on their own." In the beginning, the platform consisted of only a few disparate tools and services.

But today cloud computing is one of the fastest growing industries across the globe. Many major players have taken a foothold in the field of cloud computing. And they are providing infrastructure and services to businesses at all levels- right from small startups to global giants.

Just look at these amazing numbers:

  • Cloud computing is projected to increase from $67B in 2015 to $162B by 2020 attaining a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19%.
  • Gartner predicts the worldwide public cloud services market will grow 18% in 2017 to $246.8B, up from $209.2B in 2016.
  • Cloud computing has generated 18,200,000 jobs so far and this is just the beginning.
  • Forbes put the median salary for cloud computing jobs at $124,300 in 2016.

Simply put, there’s a massive opportunity for people like you to equip yourself with the right skillset so that you can:

  • Join talent-hungry tech companies and be at the forefront of global innovation
  • Launch unique businesses or cloud services for the next generation
  • Enjoy plush paying cool cloud projects
Whatever your choice may be, cloud computing is going to be YOUR KEY to financial success and growth and for the success of the community as a whole!

Now look at these figures:

  • 4.7% population in the US is unemployed
  • 14% of the US population is underemployed
  • The rate of unemployment stands at 6.6% in Canada
  • A whopping 40% of the young Canadian graduates are overqualified for the jobs they are handling
You can ride this wave of technological advancement by learning the skills that are “in demand” and paying well.

We know what you’re thinking… “But don’t these pioneering companies and exciting tech startups need a college degree or certifications to even get my foot in the door?” - not quite. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, said during an interview “There’s no need to even have a degree at all, or even high school certificate...if there’s a track record of exceptional ability”....skill trumps credentials.

The challenge is - where do you learn these skills? Not everyone has the 7+ years to get a Ph.D. in computer science or the patience to self-teach from scattered sources and dense textbooks, not to forget the bank-busting financial investment!. It is about time that the world gets an access to these valuable skills and we need it NOW!

Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing service that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications, and services), which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort.

Cloud computing has tremendous benefits over the traditional infrastructure approaches. Let us quickly summarize them for you:

  • OPEX vs CAPEX: It allows companies and individuals to rent compute capacity rather than spend enormous amount of capital upfront to deploy private servers
  • AGILITY: we can launch and consume capacity at a click of a button rather than waiting for physical servers to be procured, deployed and configured
  • SCALABILITY: Public cloud providers like Amazon, Microsoft and Google have set up their cloud data centers across the globe with enormous capacities. As our business scales - we can easily rent out additional servers and scale our applications and infrastructure easily
  • SECURITY: These cloud services implement the best of breed security schemes and follow stringent governance policies; thus keeping our data and applications secure

And these are only few of the advantages which cloud computing provides.

Amazon was the first company to introduce the world to cloud computing and ever since then, they have been at the forefront of cloud computing revolution. It is estimated that Amazon Web Services (AWS) market share remains at about 40 percent of the IaaS and PaaS sector — larger than the next three players (Microsoft, Google, and IBM) combined. AWS has been growing at an astounding rate of 40% year over year. Amazon’s latest quarterly results show Amazon Web Services (AWS) contributes 10% of consolidated revenue and 89% of consolidated operating income of Amazon.

Yes, you read it right - 89%. Just imagine, 89% of consolidated operating income of Amazon (which is a global giant of a company) coming from just one source- Cloud Computing. So, it definitely has greater potential than we might think!

No wonder companies like Netflix are running 100% of their global infrastructure on AWS.

So the next time you watch your favorite episode of “House of Cards” or “Stranger Things” - just remember it is being streamed to your TV or device directly from an AWS server.

With this tremendous growth potential, there is no wonder the salaries and consulting rates for cloud engineers with knowledge and experience in AWS is skyrocketing. The average salary of an AWS IT professional is roughly $120,000 – placing it in the top five highest-paying certifications in the United States and Canada.

Do you need any more evidence that learning about AWS is a tremendous career booster?

Even if you are not an engineer and just looking to start your own tech startup - knowledge about AWS will optimize your infrastructure and help you understand the tech jargon your engineering team will use day in and day out.

And you can learn and master Cloud Computing easily with our easy to understand, step by step online courses that designed to impart deep knowledge about AWS and its key components.

This is an online jam packed with deep knowledge about AWS and its key components. You will learn how to monitoring your AWS cloud and raise alarms based on certain conditions Use AWS CloudWatch and SNS to keep a close eye on your AWS cloud.

AWS Monitoring & Alerting with AWS CloudWatch and AWS SNS

Whether you are an experienced AWS user or are just getting started with cloud computing - you know it is quite easy to get your infrastructure components deployed in the AWS cloud. But do you ever wonder how you can keep a close eye on the AWS components you are using? Your EC2 instances, your RDS databases and numerous other AWS services that your applications rely on?
If so, then we know exactly where you're coming from.

There's nothing scarier than having spent weeks (even months) planning and refining your AWS infrastructure setup, only to then find out that the disk on your RDS instance is not performing well, or the throughput you need from your EC2 instance is not enough for the application you are running.

It may almost feel like moving to the cloud is like handing over all IT assets to a black box known as AWS. There is no way for you to tell what is going on in this black box.

The only way to reverse this situation and get your insights into your AWS infrastructure, has been to hire an experienced cloud consultant to review your cloud application, identify the issue and put together a tailored plan to fix it. Or just poke around in your own cloud environment and try to fix the problem yourself by hit and trial.

And when any startup or technology company is in such a situation – they are willing to pay big money for cloud engineers and consultants to help them manage their cloud infrastructure. In fact, the hourly rates cloud engineers are easily few hundred dollars an hour. And the demand for these skills is just exploding.

Wouldn’t you want to acquire these skills and be a part of this cloud computing revolution? Be highly sought after and take your career to the next level.

That's why today, we are thrilled to be able to share with you our new training program "Alerting and monitoring your AWS infrastructure with AWS CloudWatch."

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to implement complex cloud computing infrastructure in your project, business or career and achieve amazing results.
  • I’ve seen other courses charge for a certificate, is this course the same? - We don’t believe in charging hundreds of dollars just for a certificate of completion. As we stated above real world experience is much more valuable than certificates alone.
  • I’ve already done the cloud computing course, will this course still benefit me? - Cloud computing is a vast and complex topic. You may have a good understanding about how to launch and configure virtual machines in the cloud. But do you understand how do you ensure your cloud infrastructure is running smoothly? What happens if there is a problem in the middle of the nigh? How is alerted? This is important and core knowledge which will raise your understanding of the inner workings of AWS cloud to the next level.
  • I am not an engineer, will this course still benefit me? - Whether you are a startup founder, a product manager or a project manager - it is quite likely that your organization is already using or will be using AWS for deploying your cloud infrastructure. Going through these courses will give you a deeper understanding about how your engineering team is using the AWS cloud. You will be able to discuss the pros and cons of their technical approach with higher confidence.

I grew up in a small town. A friendly child, my home was troubled. I withdrew into my shell, becoming aloof and angry. At age 15, I started working in a factory. I worked 12 hours/day with only $2 as a daily salary.

In 1995, a new computer institute threw its doors open in our town. Tuition was greater than a year’s salary, but I scraped together funds for the first class where I found my passion: Computers and Programming. I met my wife there and we fell madly in love. Our marriage was disapproved of! Ultimately I had to run away from home with only a suitcase full of clothes. After our marriage, we traveled to Canada and started a new life.

I work with successful entrepreneurs, executives, CEOs, business owners who want to get more out of business and life – even in a socially distant economy.

Going from $2/day to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 reinforced my belief that anything is possible.

Let me show you how.
