What you will learn

  1. AWS Cloud Architect

    3 months to complete

    Play a critical role in an organization’s cloud computing strategy as an AWS Cloud Architect. Learn to plan, design, and implement secure cloud infrastructure in AWS at scale. Begin by designing and building high availability infrastructure, and then move on to building scalable, secure, and cost-optimized architecture. Finally, explore and execute best practices and strategies around securing access to cloud services and infrastructure.

    Prerequisite knowledge

    1. Design for Availability, Reliability, and Resiliency

      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.

    2. Design for Performance and Scalability

      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.

    3. Design for Security

      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.
