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brothers Sam and Ryan Kroonenburg who recognized cloud learning through traditional training providers was expensive, outdated, and a pain to consume.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.

  • Engagement scores around investment in L&D have increased.

  • Cloud is an increasingly desired skill and therefore having more colleagues skilled in it enables us to accept more work
  • It is cheaper for a more junior colleague to spend a month on A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy) than it is for an experienced colleague to give them 1:1 tuition for the same time

  • Increased number in certified employees.
  • Users are far more willing to jump into cloud discussions with customers armed with the knowledge of cloud.
  • Unable to product accurate reporting over time, lessening the impact on senior leadership.
