In an effort to build on the momentum of Openstack, Rackspace is launching an on demand e-learning training course, adding four new classroom-based courses and establishing a training partner program.
“As the founder of OpenStack, Rackspace recognizes the need for comprehensive educational courses and delivery models and is fundamentally revolutionizing OpenStack training to include a Certified Training Partner Program and on demand e-learning course,” Tony Campbell, director of training and certification for OpenStack at Rackspace. “We are thrilled with the momentum that the Rackspace Training for OpenStack program has had over the past year, and we are proud to expand the scope of the program and provide individuals with the necessary skills to secure OpenStack related jobs.”
Rackspace noted that at its 3-year anniversary mark in July 2013, OpenStack had more than 10,000 contributors; greater than 1,000 code authors; more than one million lines of code and was utilized by more than 200 companies in 120 countries. The BSA Global Cloud Scorecard 2013 predicts an estimated 14 million cloud jobs will be created by 2015.
