Yes, software development is something which use both your coding skills and cloud knowledge. But before making a switch to different skillset, I would rather suggest you to ask following questions to yourself which I asked myself 11 years back.
1. After 10 to 12 years in IT do you want to follow technical career path and be a software architect > in another 10 years chief architect or may be a distinguished engineer in any product based companies. If yes, then switching to coding roles is better option. Caveat is you always have to keep learning new tech at very fast rate but monetary benefit will compensate the pain.
2. After 10 years you want to jump to management direction and then grow in that field, in that case I would suggest as much tech stack you can explore in first 10 years be it coding, dba, networking, testing etc will help you set a solid foundation.
3. After 10 years you just want to settle in any company and there After want to spend a laid back life without worrying about being on top of your league then DBA is best option considering job security at that time. Reason is DB technologies has not evolved with same pace as programming tech stacks in last few decades. Some will not agree and say nosql, graphql, distributed dbs are becoming mainstream. Yes it's true still there are 100s of big companies whose main ledger is still Rdbms and they will not change in next 20 years also like banking domain. So, being a top level DBA is still safer and relevant. In this option money wise growth will be moderate compared to option 1.

Above is my opinion based on what I have seen, better talk to many people and try to listen their views as well. Also, if you become a distinguished figure then in any field money wise you will be in top earners be it coding, architecture, dba, networking. So the above facts are only for average IT guy.

Thanks a lot! I'll give it a detailed thought 🙏

Ur ctc is as per with market, I would say it's on higher side. But depending on your educational background and current company and considering sudden boom in market you can get much more during job switch.

Thanks. I'm a btech in CSE and familiar with coding as well. Should I try switching to another profile or continue working as a DBA? Is there any profile that leverages both coding and knowledge of cloud?
