Description

 In this course, students will be able to:

  • Identify AWS architecting basic practices.
  • Explore using the AWS management tools: The AWS Console, Command Line Interface (CLI), and CloudFormation in a lab environment.
  • Examine the enforcement of account security using policies.
  • Identify the elements that build an elastic, secure, virtual network that includes private and public subnets.
  • Practice building an AWS core networking infrastructure.
  • Determine strategies for a layered security approach to Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) subnets.
  • Identify strategies for selecting appropriate compute resources based on business use cases.
  • Practice building a VPC and adding an Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instance in a lab environment.
  • Practice installing an Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) instance and an Application Load Balancer (ALB) in the VPC you created.
  • Compare and contrast AWS storage products and services based on business scenarios.
  • Compare and contrast the different types of AWS database services based on business needs.
  • Practice building a highly available, auto-scaling database layer in a lab.
  • Explore the business value of AWS monitoring solutions.
  • Identify and discuss AWS automation tools to help you build, maintain and evolve your infrastructure.
  • Discuss network peering, VPC endpoints, gateway, and routing solutions based on use cases.
  • Discuss hybrid networking configurations to extend and secure your infrastructure.
  • Discuss the benefits of microservices as an effective decoupling strategy to power highly available applications at scale.
  • Explore AWS container services for the rapid implementation of an infrastructure-agnostic, portable application environment.
  • Identify the business and security benefits of AWS serverless services based on business examples.
  • Practice building a serverless infrastructure in a lab environment.
  • Discuss the ways in which AWS edge services address latency and security.
  • Practice building a CloudFront deployment with an S3 backend in a lab environment.
  • Explore AWS backup, recovery solutions, and best practices to ensure resiliency and business continuity.
  • Build a highly available and secure cloud architecture based on a business problem in a project-based facilitator-guided lab
