This course will teach you best practices for designing
scalable, highly available, and highly performant ElastiCache databases on AWS. This course will prepare you for the AWS Certified Database: Specialty (DBS-C01) Certification Exam.
Amazon ElastiCache is a fully managed in-memory data store compatible with Redis and Memcached. In this course, Amazon ElastiCache: Best Practices, you’ll learn key features of ElastiCache, along with how to analyze requirements to design ElastiCache solutions. First, you’ll explore how to design responsive, scalable, and highly available ElastiCache databases. Next, you’ll discover migration strategies. Then, you'll dive into backup restore and automated deployments for ElastiCache. Finally, you’ll learn how to optimize database performance and secure your database. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of an AWS database architect needed to answer questions from the ElastiCache domain of the AWS Certified Database: Specialty (DBS-C01) Certification Exam.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Rajdeep Saha, and welcome to my course, Amazon ElastiCache: Best Practices. I am a senior cloud architect at a Fortune Top 10 company where I migrate real enterprise applications into AWS. I am a published instructor, public speaker, and I have AWS professional certification. Amazon ElastiCache is a fully managed in‑memory data store from AWS compatible with Redis and Memcached, and it powers real‑time applications with submillisecond latency. Amazon ElastiCache is a popular choice for use cases like caching, session stores, gaming, real‑time analytics, and more. In this course, we are going to cover how to architect, automate, and optimize Amazon ElastiCache with both Redis and Memcached. This course will also get you prepared for the ElastiCache section of the AWS Database Specialty Certification exam. Some of the major topics that we will cover include ElastiCache components from basic to advanced. Then, we will learn ElastiCache migration and automation using CloudFormation. Then, we will explore ElastiCache security, logging, monitoring, and troubleshooting. Then, we will dive deep into optimizing ElastiCache performance. At the end of the day, this is a certification exam course, so we will test our learnings with lots of questions and answers for the certification exam preparation. By the end of this course, you will know how to design, build, run, and operate ElastiCache systems. You do not require any prior ElastiCache experience. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn key features and design well‑architected, highly available, and resilient ElastiCache applications with the ElastiCache: Best Practices course here, at Pluralsight.
