Course Overview
Hello, everyone. My name is Andrew Estes and welcome to my course Gaining operational excellence within a W s. I am an enterprise cloud architect at CSG International as well as founder of Quick to Cloud Operational Excellence is one of the five critical pillars that make up the well architected framework provided to us by a W s. And in this course, we're going to learn how we can best implement a W S service is to gain the most efficient operation for our architectures. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include advanced cloudwatch logging scenarios. We're gonna configure and protect cloudtrail trails. We're gonna work with leveraging systems manager and parameter store, and then we're gonna create repeatable deployments using cloud formation and ops works. By the end of this course, you're going to understand how you can utilize a W s offered service's toe, autumn eyes, your own workloads and handle your operational tasks before beginning this course. You should be familiar with a few concepts, and those include core A W s concepts. So some of the core service is you need to be comfortable with SS H. And then it might help to have an operational background, or at least an understanding of how infrastructure and operational backgrounds work. After the course, you should feel comfortable diving into gaining operational excellence with courses on cloud formation, deep dives, other courses that are a part of this solutions architect professional learning path. And I have another course called Managing A W s Operations that is essentially a deep dive into systems manager. So I really hope you'll join me on this journey toe learn howto optimize our workloads with the gaining operational excellence within a W S course here at Pluralsight.
