Congrats on the job offer.

You can always learn cloud yourself. You can play with DevStack. It is equivalent to production version of OpenStack and runs on your *nix desktop.

Storage is part of cloud. Compute, storage and networking are core components of any cloud. While you're working with Storage try to understand how luns are exported to servers and used. Storage has some networking too: FC, SCSI, iSCSI, FCoE etc. While you may be working only at the storage device, you can start looking at how they are connected to the data center network and understand the storage traffic flow in the data center and its design. Once you're clear, you can expand from there, getting deep into core components and start looking at the other components of cloud.
