What do you mean by "career in cloud computing field"? Cloud computing is a form of development and hosting, so it seems like you would be doing the same things you're doing now, just using somewhat different underlying technology.

You can deploy Java applications to the cloud using Heroku. However, this is just a deployment platform as Ulf noted. Maybe you want to learn about how to scale systems?

Yes Jeanne. For e.g. , vsphere tool of VMware is based on similar basis right ? - scalability
Are there any certifications for this ? How much it will be beneficial for career growth ?

vSphere is more about virtualization than cloud computing, although there is some overlap. Keep in mind that a subject as hot as cloud computing will be attached to many products that have little to do with it (just like SOA once was). And as with every other new technology, after the initial hype is over, there will be a wave of disappointment over what it can't deliver before it finds its true place. That being said, knowledge of cloud platforms should be valuable for a technologist, but it's impossible to quantify how much - could be a lot, or it could be very little. Start by reading up on PaaS, IaaS, SaaS and the major implementations like GAE (Google App Engine) and AWS (Amazon Web Services).
