Product Details

What is A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)?

A Cloud Guru (ACG) is a cloud learning provider that states they have helped 2,000,000+ people and more than 4,000 organizations level up their cloud skills.

Founded in 2015, ACG was started by brothers Sam and Ryan Kroonenburg who recognized cloud learning through traditional training providers was expensive, outdated, and a pain to consume. With the acquisition of Linux Academy in 2019, ACG combined the strengths and benefits of both companies to create A Cloud Guru platform for modern tech skills.

ACG's approach to learning modern technologies includes access to updated courses, labs, and learning paths, instructors that aim to keep learners motivated, hands-on learning in real cloud environments, and bite-sized lessons to fit into a busy workday.

With its hands-on multi-cloud content library, ACG aims to give businesses the edge by scaling cloud expertise across their organizations and charting an accelerated course to cloud maturity.

in June 2021, Pluralsight announced they had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire A Cloud Guru. The acquisition is expected to close in late 2021.

Quickly implementation of Proof of Concepts in the cloud by doing similar projects in ACG by recalling labs and sandboxes in ACG, improving the current solutions by using the appropriate AWS services. Provoque a similar level of knowledge in the company in terms of AWS, which gives more flexibility for turnovers among employees.

the approach we are taking at the moment is to increase awareness and grow the in house cloud skills for future use when our own product is moved to the cloud

it is still early to measure the business outcomes as we are just getting ready for the future

For our specific group, we have increased the base level of cloud proficiency across the board, and have added several certifications to our team in a short time. Users are actively using the tools ACG provides on a regular basis, referring back to courses and labs among each other to reinforce knowledge.

We the help of A Cloud Guru I was able to add automation to the environment. My solution architect was able to scale up and back EC2 with help with cost savings. We here are also able to utilize lambda functions as well. A Cloud Guru gave my solution architect all the information need[ed] to succeed at their job.

I run a delivery function at a technology vendor. We deploy solutions both as a managed service and as an on-prem offering. The material on ACG will build our capability to support deployments of new innovative cloud native technology changes being rolled into our product and keep us at the top of our market, delivering world-leading software solutions.

We have primarily used it with a reasonable number of graduates who are very new to cloud. Over the 12 or so weeks that they have been using it, they have mostly all got to a stage where they are comfortable working in the cloud and are a long way towards being ready for their AWS Certified Cloud Solution Architect Associate exam.

Our primary goal was to benchmark the cloud knowledge among the users with existing skills, create a 101 level enablement for our users new to the cloud and establish a baseline cloud knowledge across the customer-facing staff. We quickly achieved this goal within one quarter and saw numerous staff attain certifications, even though these were not required by the business. Seeing users achieve certifications to boost their careers continues to cement ACG as the right choice.

We drive our employees to A Cloud Guru as the primary learning place for Cloud. Since it covers all three main platforms, it's the one stop shop for anyone to get started or for experienced users to dive deeper. It makes learning more simple than going through all the content that is provided by the cloud providers. Because it's so simple, I feel it takes away the friction for new users looking to get started in a cloud education.
