The course also covers specific AWS features, tools, and best practices related to these functions.


Who should attend this training

This course is intended for:

  • System administrators and operators who are operating in the AWS Cloud
  • Informational technology workers who want to increase the system operations knowledge


Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Recognize the AWS services that support the different phases of Operational Excellence, a WellArchitected Framework pillar.
  • Manage access to AWS resources using AWS Accounts and Organizations and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).
  • Maintain an inventory of in-use AWS resources using AWS services such as AWS Systems Manager, AWS CloudTrail, and AWS Config.
  • Develop a resource deployment strategy utilizing metadata tags, Amazon Machine Images, and Control tower to deploy and maintain an AWS cloud environment.
  • Automate resource deployment using AWS services such as AWS CloudFormation and AWS Service Catalog.
  • Use AWS services to manage AWS resources through SysOps lifecycle processes such as deployments and patches.
  • Configure a highly available cloud environment that leverages AWS services such as Amazon Route 53 and Elastic Load Balancing to route traffic for optimal latency and performance.
  • Configure AWS Auto Scaling and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud auto scaling to scale your cloud environment based on demand.
  • Use Amazon CloudWatch and associated features such as alarms, dashboards, and widgets to monitor your cloud environment.
  • Manage permissions and track activity in your cloud environment using AWS services such as AWS CloudTrail and AWS Config.
  • Deploy your resources to an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), establish necessary connectivity to your Amazon VPC, and protect your resources from disruptions of service.
  • State the purpose, benefits, and appropriate use cases for mountable storage in your AWS cloud environment.
  • Explain the operational characteristics of object storage in the AWS cloud, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon S3 Glacier.
  • Build a comprehensive costing model to help gather, optimize, and predict your cloud costs using services such as AWS Cost Explorer and the AWS Cost & Usage Report.
