Experience with Cloud Computing, Programming, and AWS.See detailed requirements.
In this course, you will use the highly available constructs within AWS to create highly available and resilient systems and networks. Then, you will build with AWS services and understand their redundant capabilities. You will explore the connection between the technical aspects of these systems and business operations and objectives. Finally, you will practice what to do when things fail and how to handle these situations.Recoverability in AWS
In this course, you will use AWS tools to identify and implement best practices for cost, and identify and understand the elements required to design and architect scalable infrastructure. You will be able to modify traditional infrastructure for performance, and identify architectures and workloads where serverless infrastructure should be considered to meet cost and performance goals. Finally, you will be able to provision and destroy infrastructure from the command line using the AWS CLI and Terraform.Design, Provision, and Monitor AWS Infrastructure at Scale
In this course, you will explore best practices and strategies around securing access to cloud services and infrastructure. You will also use tools and methods available with public cloud ecosystems - such as AWS - to ensure that data stored in the cloud is protected. Finally, you will investigate security practices around monitoring and defending cloud based applications and environments.Securing the Recipe Vault Application

With the global public cloud computing market topping $250 billion in 2019, and more than 80% of all organizations projected to migrate to the cloud by 2025, Cloud Computing is a massively growing business. Professionals with cloud architecture expertise, and the ability to design, build and migrate applications are in high demand, with over 13,000 open jobs in available worldwide. Cloud Architects are the drivers of an organization’s cloud architecture strategy, determining the best plan to build and deploy reliable, scalable, and secure cloud services.
With Udacity’s new AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree program, you will learn to plan, design, and implement secure cloud infrastructure in AWS at scale. AWS is the world’s largest systems business and a Cloud Architect earns an average salary of $159,000!
A graduate of this program will be able to:
This program is designed to prepare students to become AWS Cloud Architects. This includes job titles such as Cloud Infrastructure Architect, Cloud Solutions Architect, Solutions Architect, Hybrid Cloud Architect, AWS Engineer/Developer, DevOps Solutions Architect, Cloud Software Architect, and more. Cloud Architect skills are also helpful for adjacent computer systems architecture roles.
If you are interested in leading the planning, designing, and implementation of secure cloud infrastructure in AWS at scale, and have some experience with Cloud Computing, then this program is right for you. You will begin by designing and building high availability infrastructure and then move on to building scalable, secure and cost optimized architecture.
Additional job titles and backgrounds that could be helpful include Cloud Developer, Cloud DevOps Engineer, Cloud Engineer, Software Engineer/Developer and more. Roles that involve web application development, cloud computing, and networking will help you have the requisite experience to succeed in this program.
There is no application. This Nanodegree program accepts everyone, regardless of experience and specific background.
To be best prepared to succeed in this program, you should have experience with:
The AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree program is comprised of content and curriculum to support three projects. Once you subscribe to a Nanodegree program, you will have access to the content and services for the length of time specified by your subscription. We estimate that students can complete the program in three months, working 10 hours per week.
Each project will be reviewed by the Udacity reviewer network. Feedback will be provided and if you do not pass the project, you will be asked to resubmit the project until it passes.
For this Nanodegree program, you will need a desktop or laptop computer running recent versions of Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux and an unmetered broadband Internet connection. For an ideal learning experience, a computer with Mac or Linux OS is recommended.
You will use: AWS CLI, AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, Lucidchart or other diagramming software, and Github in this Nanodegree program.
