Demand growing for cloud and virtualization jobs

A recent survey found that 97% of Americans regularly use cloud-based services for activities such as social networking, online shopping and banking. Not only is the cloud now embedded in our daily lives, it’s become a necessity for companies seeking efficiency in their business processes. By transitioning to the cloud, companies can store data and run programs from anywhere.

Not surprisingly, the number of job opportunities related to cloud computing and virtualization (a complementary technology) are quickly growing as more companies move core services and data storage onto the web.
