Due to the evolving Cloud Computing paradigm, there is a prevailing concern that in the near future data center managers may be in short supply. Cloud computing, as a whole, is becoming more prevalent into today's computing world. In fact, cloud computing has become so popular that some are now referring to data centers as \"Cloud centers\". How does this interest in cloud computing translate into employment rates for data center (or cloud center) managers? The popularity of the public and private cloud models are the prevailing force behind answering this question. Therefore, the skill set of the datacenter manager has evolved to harness the on demand self-services, broad network access, resource pooling, rapid elasticity, measured service, and multi tenacity characteristics of cloud computing.
