AWS vs Azure - fundamental cloud knowledge for CCSP

Which cert (AWS or Azure) would be better to learn if I want to go for CCSP one day

If you're look for something non service provider specific the CSAs CCSK may be worth considering:

As CSA worked with ISC2 on the CCSP cert, I've heard people basically say that the CCSP is basically the CCSK combined with the CISSP.

 

But the CCSP is product neutral.  I plan on getting the CCSP, and combine it with basic certificates for AWS and Azure.

@conma293 @emb021 Yet another great post by Michael... he said most of what I was going to say. I have the CCSP and it is vender neutral and I feel it is geared more towards management and less toward engineering. I have a heavy Windows background so it was a small leap from VM on a server to Azure. I am a lifetime learner and although I don't work in all the areas I know I feel it gives me confidence when I can understand what is being said and when someone it full of crap!

 

If you search for Microsoft Learn you will find all of their free training. I have done a lot of it and if I remember correctly, if you have been effected by COVID they will drop the test price down to $15 till the end of the year!

 

Also for AWS I have not read this yet but I think it's free: https://reinvent.awsevents.com/learn/tracks/?trk=em_a134p000006gJfYAAU&trkCampaign=AWS_reInvent_2020...

 

wow long link.. it's days of free AWS training...

 

And this goes for anyone and everyone, If I can be of any help please reach of to me!

I think both are similar.

Microsoft offers "Microsoft Azure Virtual Training Day: Fundamentals ", 2 free training sessions.

After completing this free training, you’ll be eligible to take the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) certification exam at no cost.

If you have Microsoft products backgroud then start with Azure otherwise go with AWS.

If you have a Linux background then start with AWS

If you are at the beginning of your carrier in IT then go with AWS.

 

Once you have an understanding of either of them then it will be a piece of cake to go for any other public cloud service.

 

Hope it helps.
