Course overview

This course covers all aspects of how to architect for the cloud over four-and-a-half-days. It covers topics from Architecting on AWS and Advanced Architecting on AWS to offer an immersive course in cloud architecture. You will learn how to design cloud architectures, starting small and working to large-scale enterprise level designs—and everything in between. Starting with the Well-Architected Framework, you will learn important architecting information for AWS services including: compute, storage, database, networking, security, monitoring, automation, optimization, benefits of de-coupling applications and serverless, building for resilience, and understanding costs.

Who should attend this training

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

Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Make architectural decisions based on AWS architectural principles and best practices

  • Use AWS services to make your infrastructure scalable, reliable, and highly available

  • Use AWS Managed Services to enable greater flexibility and resiliency in an infrastructure

  • Make an AWS-based infrastructure more efficient to increase performance and reduce costs

  • Use the Well-Architected Framework to improve architectures with AWS solutions

Prerequisites

We recommend that attendees of this course have:

  • Attended AWS Technical Essentials classroom training or have equivalent experience

  • Working knowledge of distributed systems

  • Familiarity with general networking concepts

  • Working knowledge of multi-tier architectures

  • Familiarity with cloud computing concepts
