Architecting for reliability is all about making sure your cloud-based applications are not only available a certain percentage of the time, but that they’re also performing well.
In this course, Architecting for Reliability on AWS, you’ll learn how to implement highly available application architectures on AWS.
First, you'll learn how to lay the security foundation of your AWS environment.
Next, you'll discover how to implement scalable, resilient virtual networks using VPCs, and use CloudFormation to automatically deploy a multi-tier application.
Finally, you'll explore how to implement multi-region architectures using Route 53.
When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge needed to utilize AWS architecture in the real world.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Ben Piper, and welcome to my course, Architecting for Reliability on AWS. I'm the author of the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Study Guide. Architecting for Reliability is all about making sure your cloud‑based applications are not only available a certain percentage of the time, but that they're also performing well. And on top of that, you want your environment to be cost effective. How do you balance all of this? How do you achieve high availability and consistent performance without breaking the bank? In this course, you'll get hands‑on experience learning how to achieve any given availability requirement, whether it's 99.9% or 99.999%. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include designing and configuring your virtual private cloud, or VPC, networks to be resilient and reliable, using CloudFormation, Elastic Load Balancing, autoscaling, and Route 53 together to achieve your desired level of availability while keeping costs under control. By the end of this course, you'll be able to take any availability requirement and create a reliable, cost effective design to achieve it. You'll also learn how to test and implement your design safely and quickly. Before beginning the course, you should have an AWS account and the AWS Command Line Interface installed. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into more advanced courses on virtual private cloud, Elastic Load Balancing, and Route 53. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to create resilient, scalable cloud architectures with the Architecting for Reliability on AWS course, at Pluralsight.
