RH Virtualization market adoption

Hi all,

I recently earned my RHCA in Infrastructure with the following certificates:

- Ansible Automation
- Configuration Management
- OpenShift Application Development
- OpenShift Administration
- OpenStack Administration

With my current RHLS I have one additional certification left. I choose my certs based on the current technology trends and focusing on technologies which have a wide market adoption.

However I‘m also interested to build up a diverse skill set. For my last certification I‘m considering to take one of these:

- Advanced Automation
- Virtualization
- Hybrid Cloud Management

How is the markt adoption of RH Virtualization and CloudForms? I couldn‘t find references of Fortune 100 companies. How do you see these two technologies nowadays and in the future?

Would be interested to hear your opinion and experience.

It would depend on your territory - so check your job sites - but for me in the UK. I have seen a total of 0 jobs ever for RH Virtualization. Thats 0 out of 1000's of roles.

Not only that the EX318 is seen as a real soft touch.

Advanced Automation would be a logical extension of your EX407

Cloudforms would be reasonable given your focus on cloud (but it's a soft touch too)


I wouldn't bother with RHEV.  That being said, it's a very capable virtualisation technology and I actually like it - but the market where I live doesn't agree with me.

I wouldn't bother with RHV, either - it has very little market penetration & Cloud-Native Virtualization in OpenShift is the future in that area.

I have the hybrid cloud cert because it was relevant for me, but CloudForms isn't that popular, either, and it's fate seems uncertain.  Personally, I would go for the Advanced Automation (and will myself next year).
