Likelihood to Recommend

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

I think it's really well suited for training up a team from beginner level to competence with new technologies. It looks to align well to certifications which can provide confidence in the skill level of the team.I'm not sure how it will play out long-term once we have people who come in with a high skill level in an area as it can be difficult to figure out how to plug gaps in general knowledge with the platform.It doesn't work as well for those learners who prefer to just read the man pages and get hands on with a home lab (apart from the cloud playgrounds, but the platform is expensive if that's all a learner will use).

Many Microsoft servers and Cisco networking topics are covered which suits me best. Some IT topics are not covered as opposed to other training platforms. Things that require a hands-on lab can be difficult to simulate as well.

  • It's on-demand. You can take zero or 100 courses for the same price and at your own convenience.
  • Courses are organized extremely well and instructors are great.
  • You can cover a wide range of training topics - Microsoft, Networking, database, ETC.
  • You can go back and re-watch videos to get a better understanding.

Cons

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • More material on other cloud providers GCP, Azure, Huawei
  • Extend the sandboxes to other cloud providers not only AWS
  • Include more material for non-technical people, sometimes the sales teams are completely lost in the platform but they would like to learn about it

  • Because it is on-demand, it's difficult to carve out time to dedicate to training.
  • I've had trouble with following along with some of the lab exercises.
  • It's rare, but videos can freeze up. You'll need to close the tab and start over.

Alternatives Considered

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy) was the only platform we evaluated for the vast majority of our cloud training, however we have found other providers are better in certain areas and use them to supplement A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy). For example, TutorialsDojo and WhizLabs both have better quiz systems in my opinion. Both of them present more difficult questions that better reflect the AWS ones as well as giving better feedback.

While you don't get the live instructor that you get with some other solutions, I've found the videos to be extremely helpful. If something is unclear, usually going back to re-watch clears things up for me. I like to get my hands in lots of server and networking functions and CBT Nuggets is great for both.

Return on Investment

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • Engagement scores around investment in L&D have increased.
  • There's excitement around upcoming changes to our technology instead of fear we have seen in the past.
  • We feel confident we will be able to deliver these new technologies - although we are at the start of our journey.

  • Training is always an important goal each year but always the first to be cut from the budget. This is a cheaper alternative and can offer more than a single course.
  • We don't need to send someone away for an entire week for training, it can be viewed any time.
