Overview

This immersive, advanced-level, 4.5-day course covers all aspects of how to architect for the AWS Cloud. Covering topics from Architecting on AWS and Advanced Architecting on AWS, this course is intended to teach you how to design cloud architectures, from small-scale designs to large-scale, enterprise-level designs. Starting with the Well-Architected Framework, you will also learn important architecting information for AWS services. These include: compute, storage, database, networking, security, monitoring, automation, optimization, benefits of decoupling applications and serverless, building for resilience, and understanding costs. It’s also recommended for learners who are preparing for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate exam.Target Audience

This course is intended for:

  • Solutions Architects who are new to designing and building cloud architectures
  • Data Center Architects who are migrating from on-premises environment to cloud architectures
  • Other IT/cloud roles who want to understand how to design and build cloud architectures

Delivery Method

This course uses a mix of:

  • Classroom lectures and discussion
  • Hands-on labs
  • Hands-on Activity

This course allows you to apply new skills and knowledge through practical exercises including creating the data layer with Amazon S3, creating the compute (Amazon EC2) and database (Amazon RDS) layer, creating the network layer (Amazon VPC). Additional labs build on these layers to include high availability protection, scalability, and automation. Students experience going serverless and the benefits of Lambda/API Gateway. A final lab shows how to recover from a disaster to get the applications running again.
