What's a Cloud Engineer? Here's What You Need to Know

What’s a cloud engineer?

As a business owner, you’ve probably heard by now that technology is “in the cloud.” What does that even mean? It means that information is stored elsewhere. Your data and documents aren’t stored on computers in a big room at your office.

Instead, they can be all over the world. That’s the cloud. As long as you have a connection to the internet, you can access what you need at any time from just about any device.

How are these things created and managed? Leave that up to the cloud engineer. Read on to find out what a cloud engineer does and how they can help you manage your IT needs.

What is a Cloud Engineer?

A cloud engineer is an IT professional who specializes in cloud computing. Their skills and knowledge include APIs, Amazon Web Services, and programming languages such as Ruby on Rails and Javascript.

They can have many roles in their position. A cloud engineer can build a web services program like

Cloud engineers understand the intricacies of cloud computing programs. This understanding leads them to develop stronger security solutions for businesses.

Cloud Engineer vs. Network Engineer

A cloud engineer makes sure that your systems can be integrated with what you already have. Cloud services enable you to use software programs like a CRM, documents database and even accounting software without having those programs installed locally.

What a cloud engineer does is help you manage those programs and deploy solutions that integrate with your existing IT infrastructure. 

Cloud Computing Impacts Your Business

How does that relate to your business?

Let’s say that your office is in Rockville, and you have a sales team covering a broad territory. You want your team to be out in the field working with clients, not stuck in the office looking up information before their sales call.

With cloud computing, your sales team can have the information they need without having to go to the office. They just need to access the data on their laptop or phone.

A cloud engineer makes sure that your cloud services are maintained and secure. Since your employees are likely accessing data on public connections, the data could be at risk if it’s not properly secured.

Likewise, if your cloud systems go down, instead of losing productivity and potentially revenue, a cloud engineer can get your systems up and running in no time. 

Cloud Computing is Here

Cloud computing isn’t the next big thing. It’s what’s happening right now. As your business grows, you may have employees in different locations. For your employees to be more productive, they’ll need access to information on demand.

A cloud engineer can help you maintain and manage your data in the cloud. Most importantly, they can ensure that your data is protected and within your industry’s regulations.

When we moved our environment into the cloud we worked closely with SADOS. They were easy to work with and very responsive to our needs. They helped us navigate the intricacies of the AWS and perfected our network environment. Anyone looking to move their infrastructure to the cloud would be well-served by working with SADOS.

Enforme used to host our own data-center. In doing so we had power costs, generator costs, cooling costs, hardware/warranty costs and many other costs that come along with hosting your own equipment. Now we have POP sites all over the world and double the resources at half the cost thanks to the cloud. Our cloud migration was one of the best decisions we could have made thanks to SADOS.

SADOS has been a great help. We contacted you to help migrate the Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs to AWS Gov. Cloud. Their knowledge with cloud technology was an extreme help during this project. They prepared and created the infrastructure for this environment to allow future growth, fail over possibilities, and load balancing scenarios.

SADOS’ willingness to provide immediate support during a dire time was a godsend. Their team is not only genuinely invested in the success of their customers, but also highly qualified and more willing to do what it takes to provide a broad range of IT support services compared to others. They genuinely care about my business. All the other vendors I spoke to only offered to set up an appointment and wanted to discuss pricing right away. SADOS was the only company willing to do what needed to be done right away without hesitation. is now where it needs to be thanks to SADOS.
