Learn how to implement a highly available and reliable application architecture using the patterns and best practices recommended by AWS. In this course, Architecting for Reliability on AWS, you will first explore the key concepts and core services of AWS. Next, you will follow along step-by-step to implement a real-world application that is built with the reliability principles defined within the AWS Well Architected Framework. Finally, you will learn how to further increase the reliability of an application architecture on AWS by implementing multi-region solutions. By the end of this course, you will have a variety of AWS architecture skills for the real world.
Course Overview Hey everyone. This is Mike Pfeiffer, and welcome to Architecting for Reliability on AWS. In this course, we'll work together to implement a highly available and reliable application architecture using the patterns and best practices recommended by AWS. To get started, we'll take a look at key concepts and course services when it comes to working on AWS, and you'll learn how to set up foundational services like identity and access management, how to enable and review audit logs, and how to set up alarms and notifications. Next, we'll move onto learning some of the common architectural patterns used every day by real-world AWS solution architects to build reliable systems and to implement fault tolerance into an application architecture running on AWS. Throughout the rest of the course, we'll work step by step to build up an application architecture across multiple Availability Zones within an AWS Region, and you'll learn how to properly design and deploy a virtual private cloud environment consisting of redundant database instances along with autoscaling groups that power a load-balanced web application. We'll also discuss how to further increase the reliability of an application architecture on AWS by implementing multi-region solutions for disaster recovery in global scale. So whether you're looking to pick up AWS architecture skills for the real world, or you're just preparing for AWS's certification, you're definitely in the right place, and I look forward to working with you as we explore how to architect reliable applications on the AWS cloud platform.
