CloudSiksha completes two years

second anniversary

It gives me great pleasure to share with you that CloudSiksha completes two years as on today. It has been a fascinating journey so far. We have trained close to 900 people in these two years for various companies ranging from small startups all the way to huge IT giants. We have trained people in AWS, SoftLayer, DevOps, Chef, Puppet, Storage and MongoDB. I take this opportunity to thanks all the participants, friends and partners who have made this journey fruitful.

As you know, any company can survive only if it keeps running harder and takes calculated risks. Going forwards, we wish to offer more training via the video training mode, which will enable you to study at your own pace and we will also do the blended learning part. We also plan to be a platform for various SMEs to deliver their training. We will remain focused on Cloud, Big Data and DevOps and want to make CloudSiksha’s online training courses best in class. I know the plan is ambitious but then we can’t go far without ambition, can we?

Today as a gift to those who are very new to Cloud, we have uploaded three videos on youtube. These tell you how to start an EC2 Instance and how login into a Linux EC2 instance and how to login into a Windows EC2 instance. Here are the links:

I must confess that I have been a bit lax in updating the blog due to professional commitments but that is no excuse. I will ensure that this blog gets updated once every fortnight from now on. Do follow this blog in your favorite reader to get updated regularly.

We will also be starting a newsletter soon. We used to send out newsletter but we stopped it because we wanted a ‘No Spam’ policy in place and we realized we were spamming people. We will now take people’s approval before we send the newsletter. This will be a monthly newsletter. If you want to subscribe to it, kindly send a mail to with ‘Subscribe’ as the subject.

Looking forward to interacting with all of you on a regular basis.
