Graph database technologies offer an exciting alternative to
traditional relational database systems. This course will
teach you the best practices when working with graph
databases in the AWS managed service of Neptune.
While many Cloud Architects and SysOps Engineers are very
familiar with the traditional relational database models in
AWS, there are often many that do not understand graph
database technology. In this course, Amazon Neptune: Best
Practices, you’ll learn to leverage the performance,
flexibility, and agility of graph databases in AWS. First, you’ll
explore critical topics related to graph database
deployment. Next, you’ll discover how to automate and
monitor graph databases in the AWS Neptune service.
Finally, you’ll learn how to secure and troubleshoot AWS
Neptune databases. When you’re finished with this
course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of the AWS Neptune service needed to succeed with graph databases hosted in AWS thanks to the managed service of Neptune.
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.
