To gain practical experience with cloud technologies while working as a System Administrator, one can start by setting up personal cloud accounts on platforms like AWS, Azure, or GCP. They should then explore cloud services, create test environments, and migrate non-critical systems to the cloud. Engaging in online tutorials, and certification courses can provide structured learning. Additionally, collaborating with cloud-focused teams within the organization and volunteering for cloud-related projects can offer valuable hands-on experience.
