AWS Authorized Training Course - Architecting on AWS (Accelerator)

Course Summary

The Architecting on AWS Accelerator course is designed to demonstrate Architecting on AWS in cloud architecture.

The course begins by illustrating the Well-Architected Framework. Next, it explores the architecting information for AWS services including storage, database, networks and more. The course concludes by inspecting the benefits of the de-coupling applications and the importance of building for resilience.

Prerequisites: It is recommended that participants in the course have attended AWS Technical Essentials classroom training or equivalent experience, have working knowledge of distributed systems and multi-tier architectures, and have familiarity with general networking concepts and cloud computing concepts.

AWS Authorized Training is only available in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, United States, and Peru.
