Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Amazon, as well as IBM, Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, and Cisco all are involved in the cloud technology space. According to Wikipedia, there are at least 95 cloud computing platforms. Every cloud provider takes advantage of cloud technology in their own way, and until now, the only way to learn about cloud computing was to learn about a particular platform. But cloud computing isn’t a product, it’s a discipline, and it belongs to the world.

The National Cloud Technologists Association was created in 2012 with the intent to provide vendor-agnostic cloud technology training for IT professionals within all levels of an organization. In comparison with other cloud computing certifications, the NCTA CloudMaster certification demonstrates real-world knowledge through practical activities and lab exercises, allowing students to learn and showcase a complete portfolio of skills on a wide range of common cloud technologies.
