If you are unsure about the career choice of Cloud Architect, or more specifically AWS Cloud Architect, then Udacity's makes a strong pitch to convince you:
With the global public cloud computing market topping $250 billion in 2019, and more than 80% of all organizations projected to migrate to the cloud by 2025, Cloud Computing is a massively growing business. Professionals with cloud architecture expertise, and the ability to design, build and migrate applications are in high demand. Cloud Architects are the drivers of an organization’s cloud architecture strategy, determining the best plan to build and deploy reliable, scalable, and secure cloud services.
It also provides the information that a Cloud Architect earns an average salary of $159,000.
So what does a Cloud Architect do? According to Udacity they plan, design the infrastructure for implementing cloud computing solutions and the choice of Amazon Web Services is because AWS is the world’s largest systems business.
The role requires a focus on high-level strategy including system design, security, and monitoring for performance and cost optimization. A cloud architect is responsible for identifying business goals and interpreting them as technical requirements to build cloud-based technical solutions.
The new AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree Program is expected to take 3 months at 10 hours per week. Currently there is special deal which offers 3 months for the price of 2 with an extra 15%discount, which works out at $778 rather than $1017 for the 3-month period.
The best preparation for this new nanodegree is either of the two existing nanodegrees, Cloud Developer and Cloud Dev Ops Engineer, which were covered when they were launched last year, see Udacity's School of Cloud Computing for details and more about the general benefits of achieving a Nanodegree.
