At our large enterprise clients, we install and accommodate cloud-native runtime platforms (container orchestration, logging, monitoring) into the existing IT infrastructure and then support their error-free/high availability operation.
As the person in charge of the cloud, one of my most important tasks is to develop the professional portfolio of the cloud in terms of the platform technologies by considering the needs of our larger enterprise clients and professional trends, at the same time ensuring the path to professional development for competency cloud members in terms of the platform technologies in our portfolio.
Cloud-based technology offers several advantages over traditional application installation models, including the more effective use of IT and development resources, easier and cheaper maintenance, and continuous service provision through different channels. We have a comprehensive knowledge of cloud technology, which makes the installation and operation of network-based applications in a distributed and flexible ICT environment possible.
Alerant became a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider.
Competency cloud members of cloud-native platform technologies may take part in the following projects and support opportunities:
We love to learn and inspire others to improve! We also consider training and individual development important in the Cloud-native platform competency cloud, therefore we provide several course opportunities for cloud members every year. We are constantly examining what courses and exams are related to competence that are worth taking. In 2020, the focus was on obtaining the Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) qualification, the prerequisite of which was met: we passed 3 Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exams. We did not stop here, we further expanded our professional knowledge with Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) and Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) exams. The examined colleagues help the enterprises to successfully implement Kubernetes, cloud-native solutions and DevOps tools with their Kubernetes expertise, significant experience and consulting.
The Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) certification was introduced by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in cooperation with the Linux Foundation. During the exam, candidates must complete Kubernetes administration tasks on a command line interface.
A Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) certification was introduced by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) for experts with a CKA exam. During the exam, knowledge of the security issues of container-based applications and the Kubernetes platform should be reported on the topic of build, deploy and runtime.
With the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) exams, we prove our knowledge and skills in using the Kubernetes platform during our Cloud Native application development tasks.
