Description

Effectively cost-optimizing cloud applications is a challenge for every organization. In this course, Architecting for Cost on AWS, you will gain the knowledge you need to design cost-effective applications. First, you will learn how to avoid common cost-optimization pitfalls with case studies from cloud-adoption failures and success stories. Next, you will discover design patterns to architect applications to match the supply and demand of cloud resources to reduce wasted spending. Finally, you will explore how to develop ongoing cost awareness and optimize your cloud costs over time. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge required to architect cost-optimized applications on AWS and to optimize existing AWS applications.

Course Overview
(Music) Hi everyone, my name is Fernando Medina Corey, and welcome to my course, Architecting for Cost on AWS. I currently work as a cloud architect at Stormlight Consulting, LLC, and have previously used AWS as a data engineer and software developer. I also hold six AWS certifications and I've made courses that span dozens of AWS services. This course is a holistic look at how to optimize your AWS applications for cost effectiveness. With over 200 billion dollars spent in the public cloud in 2019, we need to learn how to make the most of our cloud spend. Some of the major topics that we will cover include avoiding common cost optimization pitfalls, using architectures that match supply and demand, developing applications with the most cost-effective compute services, how to master AWS organizations and billing, and how to develop cost awareness in your organization. By the end of this course, you'll know how to architect your own cost-optimized AWS applications, and how to dive into existing applications and find areas for optimization. Before beginning the course, you should be somewhat familiar with cloud services and AWS itself. You may also want some development experience, but all the demo code will be provided for you. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into other cost-optimization topics with courses on services like AWS Lambda, serverless applications in AWS, or Amazon CloudWatch and CloudTrail. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn AWS cost optimization with the Architecting for Cost on AWS course here at Pluralsight.
