Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It would not hurt. Depending on where you want to take your career, it may not be used now but down the road it could be. Just take a look at all the smart device coming out today. Who would have thought 5 or 10 years ago you could have your appliances and home security tied to your smart phone? I think AWS is fairly sound and gaining in popularity more each day.

    Nowadays AWS is more in demand. Not only that, it provides both Infrastructure as a service/SaaS & Platform as a service/PaaS. As you have IT/computer background, so it is not so hard to learn. For more details, please link here: https://aws.amazon.com/?nc2=h_lg

    No one can tell you if it's good for your career or a waste of time that would be better spent elsewhere. (Actually, it could very likely be better spent learning something else; but no one knows what something better would be.)

    Regardless, if it seems interesting, then go for it. The more areas you can get background in, the more that all areas will make more sense. Even if it's never used in a position you ever hold, there will be elements that will be similar to things that you are doing.

    Moreover not only AWS Amazon, you can consider Cisco cloud security certification also. This is a global certification and much more demand in current job market. You can link here for more info: http://www.cisco.com/c/en_in/products/security/cloud-security/index.html?stickynav=1
