There are many benefits to running your applications in the cloud but also many choices to make. In this course, we will focus on how architecting for performance efficiency on AWS will ensure your cloud applications perform efficiently for your stakeholders.
Building applications that take full advantage of the features of running in the cloud can be difficult. In this course, Architecting for Performance Efficiency on AWS, you will gain the ability to make architectural choices to select and implement whichever AWS service will provide the performance your chosen application requires. First, you will learn to review and select the appropriate AWS service. Next, you will understand the importance of automating the creation of your environment to support experimenting with different services. Finally, you will explore how to create a monitoring strategy to identify opportunities to improve the performance of your architecture while the solution is in use. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of AWS performance options needed to design and grow architectures to meet your stakeholders' needs. To benefit from this course, you will need an AWS account.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Mike Erickson, and welcome to my course Architecting for Performance Efficiency on AWS. I am an architect and developer working on various projects with multiple clients. In this course, we are going to discuss some of the choices that you must consider when working on applications which will run in AWS. Some of the major topics that we will cover include selecting AWS services that meet your application needs, the need to automate your infrastructure and code deployments, how to more easily test multiple service options for the best fit in your application, and to be aware of the tradeoffs you are making as you choose the AWS services to use in your application. By the end of this course, you will be better prepared to define an application architecture to take advantage of the benefits offered by running in AWS. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic AWS services and the core concepts of cloud-based applications. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about building better architectures with the Architecting for Performance Efficiency on AWS course at Pluralsight.
