OpenStack Foundation steps up efforts to address enterprise skills gap
OpenStack Foundation co-founder claims scarcity of techies with skills in using the open source cloud platform remains biggest barrier to enterprise adoption.
The OpenStack Foundation is ramping up its efforts to boost the availability of IT workers with skills in using the open source cloud operating system (OS) through the general release of its certification scheme.
The Certified OpenStack Administrator (COA) accreditation, which was first announced at the organisation’s Tokyo Summit in October 2015, is being offered by Rackspace, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Mirantis, among others.
Participants can study the course’s content from anywhere in the world, which will – the foundation claims – make it easier for enterprises to find and hire OpenStack techies.
