I have been subscribing to Edureka's courses for almost a year now, primarily related to Big Data and Data analytics. These courses have helped me to gain that competitive edge which is required at the job. Also, their courses cover a breadth of topics and range from computer programming languages like Java to Data Visualisation. There is also constant updation done on these courses, and you can talk to their support staff at any time for any assistance. I found the faculties very knowledgeable, and all the courses that I enrolled in were delivered in a very detailed and professional manner. For any person looking for online training, I can recommend Edureka without hesitation.

Muralidhar Gaddam link DevOps Professional, Project/Program Management Corporate Trainer

I got full value from Edureka's DevOps course. I had to come out of my comfort zone as I was expecting a lot theory but this had continuous Lab/practice by the trainer in all trending tools - GIT, GitHub, Jenkins, Docker, Puppet & Nagios. Trainer was very knowledgeable and helpful. High technical content/slides. Timing was great due to promotion offer for free self-paced Chef & Ansible & Jenkins-indepth modules. Sometimes had to ask trainer to slow down and some install commands were failing at times but these were were minor as I learned how to handle such issues. Am now all set to work/manage with confidence in a DevOps environment. Edureka had also called me prior to the training to capture my needs.
