Computer Science vs Information Technology

Which is the preferred route for becoming a cloud architect? I’ve seen so many conflicting responses. I even have a friend who works for Oracle that isn’t sure which is correct.

IT tends to be about using computer systems, while CS is about creating them.

Go the CS route. You can become an architect with an IT degree, but you’ll have to learn a lot of things on your own that you’d have been taught in a CS program.
