Architecting on AWS
Duration : 3 Days (24 Hours)
Architecting on AWS Course Overview:
The Architecting on AWS course is specifically designed for solutions architects, solution-design engineers, and developers seeking to gain a comprehensive understanding of AWS architecting. Throughout the course, participants will learn to identify the appropriate services and features needed to build resilient, secure, and highly available IT solutions on the AWS Cloud.
Architectural solutions can vary based on industry, application types, and business size. AWS Authorized Instructors will emphasize best practices using the AWS Well-Architected Framework, guiding participants through the process of designing optimal IT solutions using real-life scenarios.
The course modules cover various topics including account security, networking, compute, storage, databases, monitoring, automation, containers, serverless architecture, edge services, and backup and recovery. Participants will gain insights into these areas and learn how to apply them effectively in their architectural designs.
Throughout the course, participants will have the opportunity to practice building a solution and apply their newly acquired knowledge. This hands-on approach enables them to solidify their understanding and develop practical skills.
