Cloud Academy released its November 2018 Data Report revealing trends and shifts in the cloud computing industry.
The world is trending multi-cloud
Multi-cloud has become reality and Cloud Academy’s analysis of job postings reveals that DevOps engineers are now expected to have concurrent proficiency in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, with 70 percent of job postings mentioning Azure also mentioning AWS.
Google places a distant third in the public cloud supremacy battle
Job postings mentioning Google Cloud Platform (GCP) are significantly fewer, with only 7 percent that mention AWS also mentioning Google Cloud. For now, any organization that says they are multi-cloud is firmly invested in AWS and Azure.
Companies aren’t bought into GCP for data engineering
Industry analysts often suggest that GCP is the best-fit for data engineering, but the data shows differently. GCP didn’t even crack the top 20 data engineering skills mentioned in job postings, while AWS and Azure did.
Kubernetes may be driving multi-cloud adoption
Cloud Academy’s data discovered that as the number of public cloud platforms mentioned in job postings increased from three months ago, so did the mention of Kubernetes, suggesting that a multi-cloud strategy necessitates adoption of containerization.
