anyone have RHCSA and working as linux/unix admin, do you think what you learn or do when taking the certs does improve your skill in your job or it just solely for showing certs in resume/demand salary?

I'm currently a junior sys admin/IT support which kinda `jack of all trades` since I'm managing HPC clusters, linux workstation and anything in between including network, bash scripts and all that. we use centOS (6+7) on those machines so certs in RHEL might be the best for this.

I'm a diploma graduate and quite young so I'm keen to learn more.

Sorry for butting in, which do you guys recommend more for someone that has no degree nor diploma, but currently administering a few linux servers from samba, proxies, some network monitoring tools, and a few in house application servers.

I'm in the same position. No degree nor diploma.

When in doubt, go for RedHat one. Which would be RHCSA.

If you are interested with network you can try network certs, though I have not much information about it. I wouldn't dare to say anything. But if you like playing with the OS, you're always welcome to the club. There are Red Hat cert or LPI. It's always interesting to do crazy stuff like a fool. icon_idea.gif

Yeah I initially was interested in CompTIA Linux+, but after looking around I'm thinking that I should get something in RH since the demand is there.
OS wise, I don't really like it. biggrin.gif

Yeah I'm leaning more towards OS side, not quite fond of networking, but no matter what there's always networking involved.

people nowadays looking forward for automation & cloud.. os can be ready with a few clicks & under 10minutes.. in future no more datecenter or server room.. everything on the cloud..
in parallel, just learn for scripting as well.. python, c, bash.. etc

cloud =/= no more datacenter
Where do you think all the server is?

Anyway, transition to cloud just meant the datacenter provider will be concentrated to few major player. With less job opportunity.

Also when we talk about cloud, not everything is platform-as-a-service(PaaS) like Heroku. Most people/organization currently use cloud as Infrastructure-as-a-service(IaaS) which still require system, network and OS level maintenance.

Serverless architecture on the other hand is very interesting right now. But the cost is still prohibitive. iflix is one of the pioneer in Malaysia I guess. iflix don't have sysadmin/sys engineer, they only have devops which as you say, more proficient with scripting.

Physical svr is there however small company for example no need to buy hardware & hire sys admin to takecare their os, backup, apps.. just create os from aws/google cloud then its ready already, want extend fs, just click how much space need to add, done.. ive tried google cloud, very easy, aws not yet tried due credit card probs..

Initial phase, they will start with automation, ie ansible, puppet..reduce cost, automate everything thats is repetitive.. converting to cloud in parallel..

New tech must be expensive initially, but when it goes on the requirement & competititor the cost will be relevant & every company can subscribe..

RHCSA / RHCE & CCNA + SQL Server should be good combinations.
