Be a CloudGenius


You've heard Marc Andreessen say "Software Is Eating The World." Specifically, it is the ecosystem of Open Source software that is chewing it up, swallowing it and digesting it all. Open source has the force of community behind it and that is hard to beat. Even traditional proprietary software companies (yes, I used to work at Microsoft) are embracing openness and open sourcing their crown jewels. Microsoft has recently joined the Linux Foundation. It is a pragmatic business decision for them.

Our team at Cloud Genius has always focused on vendor neutrality, open source, and practical hands on learning experiences that has resulted in us getting rated among the top 10 programs by the CIO magazine!

Cloud Genius is the smartest route for a career in the cloud. You have arrived at the right place. Go ahead... explore, participate, collaborate... and build your future.

We've got your back.

I completed the course and was very impressed with the amount of information, variety of platforms covered and the level of detail provided. I had very little Cloud and Linux experience and the instructor was sensitive to that fact, ensuring we understood concepts prior to moving to the next topic area and provided recordings for additional review. Cloud Genius provided detail and depth across a variety of Cloud providers, platforms, tools and solution offerings, which ensured extensive knowledge across required topic areas.

Cloud Genius was a eyeopener for me to know how much is out there. The program covers various technologies used in cloud world and gave in depth practical use of it. The instructors had in depth experience in various technologies used in cloud and walked us from design thru having the product in function. There are lots of hands on example to give real sense of how it works. Program goes into concepts and gives the theoretical details of design and make use of open source, then jumps into practical and builds the product to show the application. Cloud Genius gives exposure to variety of platforms, options available in market, different tools and technologies, open source products to use which gives us extensive understanding of different topics. There are lots of topic that has been covered in detail with hands on example. Great program.

Cloud Genius online library is a gold mine.
Toma FrostStaff SergeantUS ArmyJBLM
The challenge of the bootcamp was like being dropped in the ocean, with a group of strangers, just far enough from shore to put everyone way out of their comfort zones. This class was a combination of intimidating, constantly challenging, and a lot of work. But, with a lot of patience, prodding and encouragement, the instructor was able to lead us all safely back to shore, much stronger from our experience. In the end it was very rewarding and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in really understanding cloud computing.
Anthony JonesDirector of OperationsGetableSilicon Valley
Cloud Genius instructors went above and beyond course expectation in several areas by being available for one on one discussions and taught many non cloud topics students were interested with. Although Cloud Genius is a team of industry experts, they are very humble and thoughtful.

Mark MyersSr. DirectorMicrosoftRedmond, WA
Originally not sure what to expect from this real-time interactive (instructor led) experience, I ended up very impressed and with exceeded expectations overall. The exceptional leveraging of multiple multimedia, collaborative, and cloud-based tools conveyed each lesson very clearly. Student and instructor interaction and information sharing was highly collaborative (mostly real-time during class, but also off-line as warranted). The well-organized, well sequenced and very relevant curriculum (including relevant exercises) served as a solid foundation to the interaction.
Ted MiroulisSenior Solutions ArchitectWindstreamEdison, NJ
Strongly recommend this program for any IT employees (Developers, Architects, Programmers, Operation and Prod Support teams). The course covers the state-of-art topics in cloud computing and the instructors makes the classes very interesting with live examples, class exercises, videos and of course humor.

Instructors are helpful and very considerate when we say we don’t get it. Really important!
Ahren SwettTransitioning Service MemberUS ArmyJBLM
From simple to complex cloud implementations, this course offers the variety of awareness and understanding. The course provided an understanding of how to deploy virtualized environment on personal computing resources or cloud hosting services. The course also covered automated deployment schemes to implement software development environments in a way hobbyists and professionals can understand. The course had me engaged through videos and realtime interactions. Even though you may not be a developer, the course provides insight and curiosity for fully taking advantages of cloud technologies.
Alejandro VelozCloud ArchitectBoeingCharleston, NC
I took these series of courses because I recognized that during my time being part of an enterprise level cloud operation that the state of cloud services had passed me by. Cloud Genius boot camp focuses on the current state of the business and is constantly updating the curriculum to expose the new popular technologies being used by the industry. Cloud Genius focuses on the needs of the students including content requested during the course. I see this course becoming a regular part of my continuing education to keep up with industry trends. Thanks for a great program!
