This course covers the core learning objective to meet the requirements of the 'Architecting for Management & Governance in AWS - Level 3' skill

Learning Objectives:


  • Analyze how to design a multi-account AWS environment for complex organizations
  • Analyze an effective patch management strategy for your AWS resources
  • Analyze the most effective and appropriate logging and monitoring strategy for multiple resources
  • Evaluate an appropriate AWS offering(s) to enable configuration management automation

Systems Manager is a good fit in the AWS Tool Set. Systems Manager fits well into your existing AWS configuration and management tool set. It provides you with the Systems Manager Explorer, which is a customizable operations dashboard that delivers a display of your operational data and work items for all your accounts and across regions. You can use Explorer to configure settings and preferences. You can customize the display using drag and drop and drill down capabilities to prioritize work items.

Finally, with Explorer, you can take action using automated runbooks if needed. Systems Manager also integrates with your Amazon CloudWatch dashboards and your Personal Health dashboard. You can now have a set of fully managed AWS Services that help you enable provisioning and operating of your resources at scale. If you'd like to know more about Amazon CloudWatch Dashboard, you could view our existing course at the link shown here on the screen.
