What & How of


RED HAT CERTIFIED ARCHITECT

A Red Hat® Certified Architect (RHCA) is a Red Hat Certified Engineer


(RHCE®) or Red Hat Certified JBoss Developer who attained Red Hat's
highest level of certification by passing and keeping current five
additional hands-on exams on Red Hat technologies. If you pass more
than five, then you achieve a higher level of RHCA. In order to retain
RHCA status, you must keep at least five credentials beyond either
RHCE or RHCJD current. These need not be the same credentials you
used when you first earned RHCA. Red Hat recommends unique
configurations to achieve the RHCA.

Would you like to be part of a team that builds a modern datacenter,


improve the cloud infrastructure, or plan for your future application
platform? RHCA concentrations are recommendations by Red Hat
that test technical professionals' skills and knowledge planning and
building Red Hat solutions. You can select the concentration you wish
to focus on or can choose any combination of eligible Red Hat
certifications to create a custom concentration of your own.

RHCA WITH APPLICATION PLATFORM
CONCENTRATION

An RHCA with an application platform


concentration is a Red Hat Certified Engineer who
has attained Red Hat's highest level of certification,
proving their skills with tasks common for building
and managing tools and applications.

Just about every application today relies on other


software: operating systems, database management
software, even software running in the public cloud.
Whatever it does and wherever it runs, all of this
software together comprises an application
platform. Application platforms play a fundamental
role in modern computing environments.

Applications and the data they use provide all of the


value that information technology brings, and
virtually every application depends on an
application platform. Since pretty much every
organization today relies on applications, there's a
clear connection between business value and
application platforms.

The applications they support run on all kinds of


computers, including mobile phones, desktops,
on-premises servers, and servers in the public cloud.
An effective application platform needs to provide
the right set of services on each of these. A single-
user application running on a phone needs radically
different services for execution and storage than
does an application that runs in the cloud and
supports thousands of simultaneous users.

RHCA WITH APPLICATION
DEVELOPMENT CONCENTRATION

An RHCA with an application development


concentration is a Red Hat Certified Engineer who
has attained Red Hat's highest level of certification,
proving skills in enterprise application development,
integration, and architecture.

In today's fast paced world people are wondering


what really is application development. Application
development is the process of making or creating an
application to run on various platforms. An
application platform is an operating system. Each
platform has its own rules, regulations, and
requirements to make an application. This is very
important to understand because when making an
application for app development on the various
application platforms you cannot just make one app
and port it over to the next platform.

RHCA WITH CLOUD CONCENTRATION

An RHCA with a cloud concentration is a Red Hat


Certified Engineer who has attained Red Hat's
highest level of certification, proving their skills with
tasks common to cloud infrastructure.

Cloud is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand


access to a shared pool of configurable computing
resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications
and services), which can be rapidly provisioned and
released with minimal management effort. Cloud
provides users and enterprises with various capabilities
to store and process their data in third-party data
centers. It relies on sharing of resources to achieve
coherence and economy of scale, similar to a utility
(like the electricity grid) over a network.

Advocates claim that the cloud allows companies to


avoid upfront infrastructure costs, and focus on
projects that differentiate their businesses instead of
on infrastructure. Proponents also claim that the cloud
allows enterprises to get their applications up and
running faster, with improved manageability and less
maintenance, and enables IT to more rapidly adjust
resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable
business demand. The present availability of high-
capacity networks, low-cost computers and storage
devices as well as the widespread adoption of hardware
virtualization, service-oriented architecture, and
autonomic and utility computing have led to a growth
in cloud infrastructure. The cloud has become a highly
demanded service or utility due to the advantages of
high computing power, cheap cost of services, high
performance, scalability, accessibility as well as
availability.

RHCA with DevOps Concentration

An Red Hat® Certified Architect (RHCA) with a


DevOps concentration is a Red Hat Certified
Engineer (RHCE) or Red Hat Certified Developer
who has attained Red Hat's highest level of
certification, proving their skills and knowledge in
technologies and practices that can accelerate the
process of moving applications and updates from
development through the build and test processes
and on to production.

In traditional, functionally separated organizations


there is rarely cross-departmental integration of
functions with IT operations. DevOps promotes a set
of processes and methods for thinking about
communication and collaboration between
development, QA, and IT operations.

DevOps integration targets product delivery,


continuous testing, quality testing, feature
development, and maintenance releases in order to
improve reliability and security and provide faster
development and deployment cycles. It aids in
software application release management for an
organization by standardizing development
environments. Events can be more easily tracked as
well as resolving documented process control and
granular reporting issues. The DevOps approach
grants developers more control of the environment,
giving infrastructure more application-centric
understanding.
