What will happen to my job profile.


  • Hi All,

    I am working with small company as windows system administrator. We have windows 2003 domain servers, SQL servers & exchange server. After investigation i found that cloud service will eat up my job as in future companies won't have to have servers locally. Azure will provide all these services to client, means cloud will host Exchange, SQL & domain services for client & with help of portal will be able to perform jos that i am doing. So at last only desktop support left for me(I guess). 

    At first look Azure is only giving opportunities to developers. i still failed to find how on in which way to adopt it, for my future career or for professionals who are not programmers or developer.

    Please help me

  • Hi rrohela,

    cloud services needs to be managed too. if your company will not have autoscaling apps, then you have to scale it manually, somebody needs to manage new deployments. somebody needs to look at IIS logs and so on.

    You just become from local servers administrator to cloud service administrator.
