Overview

Advanced Architecting on AWS is intended for individuals who are experienced with designing scalable and elastic applications on the AWS platform. Building on concepts introduced in Architecting on AWS, this course covers how to build complex solutions that incorporate data services, governance, and security on AWS. This course introduces specialised AWS services, including AWS Direct Connect and AWS Storage Gateway to support hybrid architecture. It also covers designing best practices for building scalable, elastic, secure, and highly available applications on AWS.

Our AWS-certified trainers will ensure you get the most out of your training, providing an interactive, hands-on approach. 99% of our attendees say their AWS training has led to improved workplace performance.

This four day version of the Advanced Architecting course includes the associated AWS Jam on the final day. In this AWS Jam, a gamified event, you will work in a team, competing to score points by completing a series of challenges according to established best practices based on concepts covered in the Advanced Architecting course. You will get to experience a wide range of AWS services in a series of real-world scenarios that represent common operational and troubleshooting tasks. The end result is developing, enhancing, and validating your skillsets in the AWS Cloud through real-world problem solving, exploring new services, features, and understand how they interoperate.
