As a tech consultant given a strict time frame, is it better to master one cloud architecture or learn enough to navigate through several?

Learn one, you know all. Its like driving a car. Lol. You just need to know the terminology for the others which is the basic foundation cert. all the major clouds are the same

I agree..master one cloud architecture and others will have similar services..just know which they are..Having said that, devil is in the detail..You need to know exactly how much throughput is supported and such when you are providing recommendations to clients and every vendor’s service is different in that respect

Depends on your job. If you are a consultant making technical recommendations to client then you need to know all the options. If you are an implementer then you need to specialize and go deep in one

Rephrasing: Would it be better to be an expert Architect at one cloud architecture like AWS? Or novice to intermediate architects at two like AWS and Azure?

My personal opinion: Building blocks are all the same, only brand names differ (e.g., Azure CDN vs. AWS Cloudfront), with some minor exceptions that should not be relevant to most organisations. It’s far more important to learn how to build a good cloud architecture independent of vendors. So: Become an expert in one, and then learn the vocabularies for the others.

Its all the same...and when you think cloud its really just infrastructure

like

Learn the generic names and patterns for scalable systems rather than cloud specific terms. i.e. document store rather than DynamoDB, load balancer rather than ELB, memcache rather than ElasticCache, etc. This way you can come up with cloud agnostic architectures, have better conversations with client tech teams and more easily translate your architecture into a specific cloud implementation.

Those who say they are all the same clearly don’t work in cloud. The concepts may be the same, but the deployment topologies, requirements, service levels, and infrastructure stacks could not be more different. Learn what you have time for, but start with AWS.

Hi folks, having a rather interesting situation. Have landed offers from both Microsoft and AWS. Microsoft is paying slightly less than AWS. I have good experience in Microsoft technologies and cloud so have some bias for choosing them. However, both roles are within the cloud sales and architecture - like a senior solutions architect enabling sales. Thoughts?
