Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Anthony Sequeira, and welcome to my course, Amazon Neptune: Best Practices. I'm an AWS Solutions Architect, and I work as a consultant and freelance author and trainer. Graph databases have sparked great interest since their arrival as organizations seek new ways to use massive amounts of data to their advantage. In this course, we're going to review graph database technology and really focus on how it is different from relational databases. We're going to cover best practices regarding the deployment, operations, and security of a graph database solution in AWS thanks to Amazon Neptune. We'll also detail the specific issues that are common to Neptune deployments in AWS and determine how to solve them. And we'll also give you information on controlling costs when it comes to a Neptune deployment. By the end of this course, you'll really know the best practices for the deployment of a graph database solution in Amazon Web Services and, again, know how to control costs and make this deployment frustration free. Before beginning this course, you should really be familiar with the fundamentals of AWS and designing architectures in AWS. It is strongly recommended that you be an AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate or have the equivalent knowledge. After this course, you should feel comfortable diving into additional advanced topics on Amazon Web Services or even on graph databases themselves. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the cutting edge graph database technology in AWS with the AWS Neptune: Best Practices course, here at Pluralsight.
