Course Overview

This Architecting on AWS Accelerator training course from CloudThat combines Architecting on AWS and Advanced Architecting on AWS to offer a comprehensive, immersive learning in cloud architecture. It covers all aspects of how to architect for the cloud over 5 days.

By attending this Architecting on AWS accelerator course, candidates 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 be immersed in AWS services like compute, storage, database, networking, security, monitoring, automation, optimization, benefits of de-coupling applications and serverless, building for resilience, and understanding costs. Using hands-on labs, you will apply knowledge from lectures to gain skills. This course includes presentations, group exercises, and hands-on labs.

After completing this course, students will be able 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
  • Explain the SysOps and DevOps interdependencies necessary to deploy a microservices application in AWS
