Hi Experts,

I want to know information on below questions
1. Which cloud computing service is being used world wide like Amazon or MS Azure etc.,
2. When a company have its own private cloud how do they manage to administrate it?             Eg: amazon has its console to administrate instances.
3. As a windows admin which cloud computing course would be better to learn. Currently using Amazon but not aware of all features.
4. Is there a relavant best cloud computing course\certification that i can procure?

1. Amazon and Microsoft. Amazon Elastic Cloud probably largest.

2. Using the Amazon Instance Tools.

3. Cloud Computing Training: Amazon Web Services (AWS)

I agree with hanccocka for the first point:

1. Amazon definitely is the number one choice on the market currently.
2. I prefer the command line, but that depends on which features you need. Still when it comes to advanced load balancing and fail over environments with the ability to switch instantly from private to public cloud where both are located in different data centers it makes sense to have full control. Even if amazon offers it is own tools, with the command line you are still much faster to react on predictable situations. But I guess that might be specific to the way we utilize the cloud for basically anything.
3. The cloud performance drastically increases with the operation system fully supporting virtualization which is not the case for windows by now. Therefore I suggest taking a look into the architecture of Linux based virtualization, the commandline stuff is easy then, not so much different than power shell.
4. As certification on a Linux level there is http://www.redhat.com/certification/rhcva/ for virtualization.

On the other hand for windows administrators it might be more reasonable to take a look at the VMware http://www.vmware.com/solutions/cloud-computing/ they also provide certificates as far as I know.

Please find my comments inline
1.      Which cloud computing service is being used world wide like Amazon or MS Azure etc.,
There is a high competition in the market for providing cloud computing service and now almost every IT based company is looking to offer cloud computing service.

2. When a company have its own private cloud how do they manage to administrate it?  Eg: amazon has its console to administrate instances.
It depends on architecture and infrastructure they have for clouds. To go in to more details, pls have a look at VCE and FlexPod cloud computing solutions. (let me know if you want to go in to the details)
3. As a windows admin which cloud computing course would be better to learn. Currently using Amazon but not aware of all features.
For betting understanding of Cloud computing, you need to have knowledge of computing, storage and networking. So you may go for courses available in these domains.
4. Is there a relavant best cloud computing course\certification that i can procure?
For end to end knowledge of cloud computing you must have knowledge of networking(Cisco certifications), switches(Cisco certifications), unified computing solutions (eg. Cisco UCS) , Virtualization (VMware, Microsoft) and storage(NetApp,EMC certifications) .So I would prefer to do certifications in these domains
