Frequently Asked Questions

What are the 3 basic components of cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand access to shared computer resources. 

The basic components of a cloud architecture include the front and back end, as well as the network being used. However, ‘components of cloud computing’ often also refers to the models of a cloud service. 

The three main models offered by cloud computing providers are:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS) – the software is hosted on the cloud and accessed on a subscription basis.
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS) – the platform for creating software is hosted on the cloud and shared by developers.
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – the computing infrastructure is cloud-hosted and accessible via the internet.

Examples of these models include:

  • SaaS – software for the end-user like the G-Suite apps and Microsoft 365.
  • PaaS – platforms for software developers like AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Windows Azure, and Google App Engine.
  • IaaS – scalable and automated cloud infrastructure for system administrators; some of the IaaS cloud service providers are AWS, Windows Azure, and Digital Ocean.

What does a cloud architect do?

Cloud architects oversee cloud computing systems for different enterprises. They manage the cloud adoption process – from developing a strategy to monitoring cloud privacy. 

Essentially, a cloud architect provides cloud computing architecture solutions to meet company needs.

What does it take to become a cloud architect?

Cloud architect requirements include:

  • Post-secondary degree in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Experience in cloud solution design, execution, and support.
  • Expert-level knowledge of cloud computing technology and cloud services.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and preparedness to collaborate with members of different teams.

Also, consider a cloud architect certification to prove your skills and stand out during the job search. The AWS Certified Solutions Architect is the cert of choice for most companies. 

Are cloud architects in high demand? 

With the boom of cloud technology, job openings are on the rise. 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer network architect jobs will increase by 5% by 2028. 

Cloud computing is one of the most in-demand tech skills of 2020, according to Linkedin. Cloud engineering is also one of the fastest-growing emerging jobs in this year’s World Economic Forum Jobs of Tomorrow report. 

When you look at the rise of cloud technology, it’s easy to see why cloud architecture jobs will only grow in number and remuneration. 

The cloud architect job outlook is great, too. Entry-level cloud architect jobs can open doors to more senior positions, both in the tech department and in management.

How much do cloud architects make?

Cloud architect jobs can easily come with six-figure paychecks. The average base pay, according to GlassDoor, is $107,309! Payscale places it even higher at $122,908.

And this is not even accounting for bonuses and other additional cash compensation. These can go up to $29,792 per year!
