I need about three fitty

Speaking of the RHCSA, would I be doing myself a disservice by studying for the older exam based off of RHEL 7? That particular exam is available until October 2020, and the free study material I have access to doesn't have any RHEL 8 material.

At this point I’d go for RHEL8, especially if you intend to follow up with RHCE in a later stage. Changes between 7 and 8 are not that big as far as I remember. They ditched ldap/virtualization and introdiced VDO, Stratis and AppStreams.

So, in other words something every loving IT manager should take before they go ing-off about but don't because everything is horrible and sucks?

If you plan to move to AWS it’d probably save you anwsering hours of basic questions like “can I call Amazon to fix my issue when my application crashes?”.

that was an actual question I got from the Head of Innovation department who was responsible for coming up with the companies cloud strategy, not that long ago

That’s perhaps a slightly naive question but not an outright stupid one. Depending on what the application is and which AWS services it’s using the answer could be yes, no, or maybe. Even within EC2 instances AWS provides some support for 3rd party applications.

Thanks. I'll go through the older material I have then wait for the updated stuff to come out.

The question was more in line with “will Amazon do all our Ops stuff for us like SaaS”.

And it might not have been outright stupid, but I expected a lot better for the position the person had. If you’re supposed to come up with the companies cloud strategy and haven’t heard about the shared responsibility model there’s something wrong.
