How to become a DevOps/Cloud architect ?

DevOps is the mix of development and operations, as the name indicates. DevOps is a certified technique that optimizes the software development lifecycle by combining development and information technology. It promotes continuous delivery and feedback while guaranteeing project coherence across the many teams engaged. Software development is a multi-phased process that takes a long time to complete. Development, deployment, testing, and design are all part of the process. DevOps developers jump in with their knowledge to guarantee that all phases of development are error-free and well-optimized. Continuous development, continuous testing, and continuous integration are all made easier with DevOps, assuring high quality and on-time delivery.
A cloud architect is an IT specialist who is in charge of all technical aspects of cloud computing, such as design, planning, and administration. Cloud computing solutions have risen in popularity as organizations across the world transition away from local data centers and server rooms. The majority of large businesses are moving their business applications and data storage to cloud-based services. Moving to cloud services is the top strategic priority for more than half of those firms' IT departments.
Companies have highly experienced DevOps/Cloud architect jobs to manage their cloud usage, which includes app development, resource allocation and maintenance, and effective use of industry-leading cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.

What is the scope for DevOps/Cloud architects?

The software development cycle has been transformed by DevOps. The DevOps philosophy's code of ethics has also improved application development. As a result, there is a growing demand for remote DevOps/Cloud architects with excellent collaboration abilities.
The future of cloud computing has changed dramatically in recent years. Thanks to modern technology, the world is becoming increasingly connected. One of the key causes for the shift in cloud computing's scope is because of this. The amount of labour, technology, and research capital needed to forecast cloud computing's future reach has also grown. As a result, we've witnessed a slew of innovative cloud computing developments.
Remote DevOps/Cloud architect jobs are becoming more common as the number of start-ups grows. Not only are remote DevOps/Cloud architect jobs in great demand, but they're also among the highest-paying occupations. One of the finest times to hunt for DevOps/Cloud architect jobs is right now.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a DevOps/Cloud architect?

DevOps' major responsibility is to supervise the software development process. To align the development stages, they break down the entire process into smaller portions and correct current faults. By merging various aspects of product development, most DevOps engineers simplify the workflow. They also include automated procedures throughout various phases. A Cloud Architect is responsible for designing and maintaining the cloud computing infrastructure that all organizations require in order to be flexible and responsive. A cloud architect is someone who has the expertise and abilities to create cloud solutions that meet and surpass the company's demands. The cloud is pervasive in today's business environment, and because of Cloud Architects, more businesses are realizing their full potential.
Take a look at the tasks that every DevOps/Cloud architect job entails:

Skills required to become a DevOps/Cloud architect

The first step is to begin studying the skills you'll need to land a high-paying DevOps/Cloud architect job. Let's take a look at the information you'll need.

1. Scripting skills

Every DevOps/Cloud architect job requires to be fluent in as many languages as feasible, including JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, PHP, and Bash. DevOps/Cloud architect should also be familiar with several operating systems. While Linux is the most popular operating system, it is vital to be able to operate in a variety of operating systems. Aside from scripting, DevOps/Cloud architect jobs is to be able to control the automated processes. Writing clean code and integrating it with the code generated by other teams is critical.

2. Network and storage

Strong networking expertise is required for a DevOps/Cloud architect job because DevOps entails dealing with servers, storage, and data. Knowing how to use APIs, protocols, and other infrastructures may speed up the development process. In addition, a DevOps/Cloud architect should be well-versed in the test automation process. An experienced developer's ability to produce clean code and combine it with code developed by other teams is a proof of their expertise. DevOps/Cloud architects should also use Jenkins to handle complicated delivery pipelines in order to improve automation standards.

3. Linux

Cloud architects should be familiar with the Linux operating system, which is widely used in cloud development. Cloud architects should be familiar with Linux server architecture, maintenance, and administration. Because of its open-source nature, ease of customization, security, and other fascinating characteristics, Linux is a programmer's dream. Because cloud providers are aware of this, we see Linux being deployed on a variety of cloud platforms.

4. Containerization

Containers are a reasonable packaging approach for programmes because they allow them to be separated from their operating environment. Regardless of whether the target environment is a private data centre, public cloud, or simply a developer's laptop, this decoupling allows container-based software to be deployed quickly and consistently. Understanding how popular containers such as Kubernetes and Docker function can make your CV stand out not just in the Cloud industry, but also in the software area in general.

5. Virtualization

Application software should be able to be deployed and managed on virtual machines by cloud architects. Businesses must use virtualization to have access to scalable, fault-tolerant resources. A fundamental grasp of virtualization or services like virtual machines, EC2, and Lambda would be a significant step toward Serverless Computing. As a result, it's a top-tier certification for cloud architects.
