Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA)
For nine years RHCA has been Red Hat’s capstone certification and has evolved into a highly sought-after credential worldwide. Much has changed in those nine years, however. Red Hat’s software catalog has expanded from Linux into middleware, virtualization, storage and cloud. Where Red hat could once offer a single vision of what a Red Hat architecture might be,Red Hat’s ever expanding technology portfolio makes many architectures possible and their customers are choosing among their technologies in the ways that make sense for them. A similar approach makes sense for Red Hat’s Architect-level certification, so we will be taking a less prescriptive approach regarding the exams one must pass in order to earn RHCA.
RHCA can be acquired by earning RHCE plus following Red Hat Certificates of Expertise or certifications, which are the five most fundamental and cost effective skills to acquire:
