Overall Satisfaction with A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

We are using A Cloud Guru to skill up our staff because we are moving our applications to the AWS cloud. We are also looking at other cloud providers and would be using the A Cloud Guru platform for its learning paths and sandboxes. We are also making use of the platform for certification preparation as well.
  • The team at A Cloud Guru is excellent at responding to user feedback that is submitted through their website.
  • The content created is well organized and aligns to certification paths.
  • The content is accessible on mobile and web platforms, which is great for learning on the go.
  • Not all content has closed captioning.
  • There are technical issues at times that require me to log back into the platform to continue learning.
  • I would have like more labs for the Azure based content.
  • I feel that the Azure content could have gone deeper in learning. There are many areas that were glossed over such as the data warehousing section in AZ-304.
  • More cloud engagement and awareness.
  • Interest on obtaining cloud certifications.
  • Increase morale due to a plethora of training options on the platform.
A Cloud Guru provided better freshness of content and was priced more competitively than other cloud training platforms. A Cloud Guru also had training paths that other providers did not have on their platform. I also enjoyed the fact that there are reports that you can run on the platform that let you know how far along your users are. When purchasing, I was also able to work with A Cloud Guru account managers to work within the stringent procurement policies for government agencies.

A Cloud Guru is well suited to get started on a cloud platform. It is not so well suited for experienced cloud engineers. The best way to obtain deeper experience is to have more hands-on labs. A Cloud Guru is also for certification prep. It allows you to figure out which areas you need more concentration on while going through the course.
