hello All,
I have a little question about DBA job future in near time, as there is a gradual shift fto cloud computing, I get a doubt sometime will cloud computing consume DBA jobs. The reason why I am asking is i have recently shifted from .Net to SQL server DBA and I got the job in no time, I am very much interested in troubleshooting rather then praogramming. So sometimes I get this thought did i took the right step or not, had I been taken cloud computing to secure my future can someone answer this coz I am relatively have very very little or no knowledge about cloud computing.

Question:

1. Will cloud computing consume DBA jobs.
2. Is there a way I can do some cloud computing courses which will be related to DBA, I heard about hadoop, and azure,

can someone please suggest...


Thanks in advance
