AWS Cloud & Architect Associate Programme
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most recognised cloud infrastructure across the globe and with the dawn of the cloud era, there has never been a higher demand for skilled candidates who can manage and implement cloud solutions.
Cloud computing is the practice of storing IT resources online rather than on a local server. Services such as AWS allow businesses to access their technology (such as storage, computing power and databases) on a pay-as-you-go basis through an online platform, rather than having to buy, own or maintain physical data centres and servers themselves.
Now is the perfect time to begin enrolling on the AWS Cloud & Architect Programme. Due to such a high demand for qualified students, it is common for employers in this industry to offer excellent salary packages for these specialist roles. Other benefits of working in this sector include job security and ample opportunities for career growth.
