Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Matthew Alexander, and welcome to my course, Integrating AWS Networks with Application Services. I am a principal big data engineer at ancestry.com. With a significant number of businesses being held back from cloud‑based offerings due to privacy and security concerns, it is of the utmost importance to ensure that the network associated to your applications is both secure and resilience. This course is a more in‑depth look at the networking configurations AWS offers for various services. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the fundamentals of VPC design for building resilient infrastructure, how to support increased application load through Elastic load balancers, implementing hybrid networks to reinforce various maintenance operations and applications, and various networking configurations available for several AWS services. By the end of this course, you'll know the principles and patterns to build secure and resilient networks for your own applications in AWS. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with HashiCorps infrastructure as code offering, Terraform, version control, Docker and some firsthand experience with core AWS services such as S3, EC2, and RDS. Knowledge of CI/CD systems will also be helpful. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn AWS networks with the Integrating AWS Networks with Application Services course at Pluralsight.
