|I'm curious if anyone has taken both the AWS certifications and the Google Cloud certifications.|
Long story short - 20 years a sys admin / developer and I've never pursued a certification in anything. I've done just fine, career wise, but I think it's time to get something on paper.
I'm almost done with some AWS systems architect associates certification online training - planning on scheduling the exam this coming week or next week if I do well on the practice exams. I intend to take the first 3 at least (systems architect, developer and Sys Ops)
Can anyone compare the difficulty of the Google Cloud certs compared to AWS? I get that their different proprietary systems and in my opinion with different purposes - I personally feel Google Cloud is more for big data type situations where AWS is more for scaling and serverless architecture (please, correct me if that's wrong) - BUT - systems are systems and a basic knowledge in 1 should be helpful in the other, no?
(I'm a Linux guy - No Azure here...)
I don't intend to take the Google Cloud certs until after AWS certified and have produced some production sites to get real world experience with it. So this is really just a "I think I'm gonna do x" right now, then a "I'm doing it next week" type question.
