RHCE十周年:38,000个红帽认证工程师遍布全球

6月2日,红帽RHCE十周年庆典在北京交通大学科学学堂正式举办,庆典内容包括现场Linux技术较量及主题演讲两大部分。红帽大中华区总裁胡柏林、红
帽大中华区培训和服务经理黄健耀,来自世界500强的外资企业经理人及诸多RHCE获得者出席了此次活动。在庆典现场,同学们及远道而来的开源爱好者齐聚
一堂,与红帽专家、职场精英共同交流Linux前沿知识,探讨经济危机形式下Linux人才的机遇。



在RHCE十周年庆典活动沙龙现场,Linux爱好者进行了激烈的Linux技术较量,随后红帽Linux技术精英为现场的同学详解参赛题。参加技术较量
的同学均表示,红帽认证工程师(RHCE)实战性较强,能够较好地证明个人Linux实际应用水平,并期待早日通过RHCE认证,在职场道路上快人一步。



在主题演讲会场,胡柏林发表了主题为“开源发展前景”的演讲。胡柏林表示,在经济危机的形式下,美国政府以及各行业均将大幅度采用开源软件以节省成本。
2009年3月17日,美国国防部防务信息系统局宣布和开源软件研究会(OSSI)签署联合开发和研究协议(CRADA)。红帽作为开源厂商中的佼佼者自
然获得了不俗市场表现,并在“未来十年影响信息产业方向的公司”评选中位列第八。2009年2月18日,DLT与US
DISA签署了18,000,000美金一揽子Redhat Enterprise
Linux订阅和服务采购协议,协议有效期长达五年。2009年3月20日,CarahSoft与USESI签署协议,为ESI提供RHEL、
JBoss、MySQL技术服务及一年期订阅服务。



黄健耀分享了主题为“中国Linux市场走向与人才需求分析”的演讲。黄健耀介绍,在IT培训市场份额方面,红帽一直占据着举足轻重的地位,并呈快速上升
趋势。调查表明,2007年红帽是IT培训第一阵营的三巨头之一,2009年红帽已经成为领导区域的唯一。RHCE一直以来是市场需求最为迫切的IT认
证,原因是在团队技能和厂商支持这两大关键要素方面,红帽被认为尤为出色。



随着Linux在经济危机形式下的表现优异发展迅猛,Linux认证也随着大热。调查数据表明,目前Linux认证所占比例高达38.5%,与微软认证不
相上下。在Linux认证中,红帽认证占据比例高达61.2%,远超过LPIC、TLCE、Novell
SUSE的市场份额。与2008年相比,2009年Linux认证市场份额增长显著,RHCT认证由71.7%增长到72.2%,RHCE认证由
68.4%增长到70.6%,RHCA认证由46.7%增长到67.5%。在“2008最热门10大IT国际认证”排行中,RHCE认证遥遥领先。中国的
IT认证市场需求曾远远落后于国际水平,但市场潜力巨大。2007年中国在亚太区IT认证排名位居第四,2009年5月已上升到第三位。红帽表示看好
Linux认证在中国的市场机遇。



现场还有来自世界500强的职业经理人与大家畅谈“知识经济对企业的影响”,以及RHCE明星分享从菜鸟到Linux高手的进阶培训。该RHCE明星表示
将全力挑战从RHCT到RHCE到RHCA到RHCSS的系列认证。凭借优异表现,其获得2个月的红帽内部培训,随之赢得红帽实习机会,最终凭借出色表现
成为红帽大家族中的一员。

RHCE认证启动于1999年,是以考动手能力为主的最大的Linux认证项目之一。目前,全球已有近38,000个红帽认证工程师们帮助他们的公司作成
功的 Linux部署和迁移。未来,红帽系列认证将帮助全球范围内及中国的开源爱好者们在开源领域内获得非凡成功。
