ACloudGuru (acloud.guru) has acquired Linux Academy.
I have used both platforms in the past for my AWS and Azure exams and found them to be great value. It would be interesting to see how this acquisition provides more value to both platform users in the future.
Here is the official announcement:
We are thrilled to announce that today A Cloud Guru has acquired Linux Academy, and we are joining forces to teach the world to cloud with the largest and most effective cloud computing training library in the world. The combined organization now represents THE school for the future of IT: hands-on, practical, and updated daily as technology changes.
We recognize that our mission to “teach the world to cloud” does not just start with the novice learner or end with the most advanced engineer, but is a mission that meets customers where they are at and enables them to be successful at their particular stage in their journey. By bringing together our complementary strengths and increasing investment in content innovation, customers and partners will have a single partner to keep pace with the rapid evolution of cloud technology.
What does this mean for our customers?
Support and service for all A Cloud Guru (ACG) content and products is continuing uninterrupted, and your primary point of contact remains the same.
Over the next year, A Cloud Guru will create a seamless learner’s journey across both platforms, and our customers will benefit from having access to a combined catalogue of our courses, broad and deep hands-on learning, skill assessments, and the many educational features our platforms have to offer!
Specifically, ACG customers will benefit from:
- A more comprehensive course catalog with much greater depth in Linux, Security, DevOps, Big Data and Containers content across AWS, Azure and Google Cloud
- An unrivaled breadth and depth of hands-on learning through interactive learning features such as Cloud Playground, Cloud Servers and integrated Sandbox Environments that allow students to safely practice their new skills.
- An even larger community of learners that supports and shares best practices for ongoing education
