AWS certifications are among the cloud industry's most valuable, and the Solutions Architect Associate Level exam is the jump off point for the whole series. Once you've mastered associate level material, you'll be comfortable designing and deploying fault tolerant and highly available systems on AWS, estimating costs and building cost control mechanisms, and choosing just the right blend of services for any project you're asked to provision.

The first course of this three-part certification exam preparation series, besides offering a good general overview of AWS, focuses on the core AWS services: EC2, EBS, S3 and IAM. The second course will discuss networking and include a practical design and deployment of a real-world application infrastructure. The third and final course will explore data management and application and services deployment.

Who should take this course?

This is an advanced course that's aimed at people who already have some experience with AWS and a familiarity with the general principles of architecting cloud solutions.

Where will you go from here?

The self-testing quizzes of the AWS Solutions Architect Associate Level preparation material are a great follow up to this series and a pretty good indicator of your readiness to take the AWS exam.

David taught high school for twenty years, worked as a Linux system administrator for five years, and has been writing since he could hold a crayon between his fingers. His childhood bedroom wall has since been repainted.

Having worked directly with all kinds of technology, David derives great pleasure from completing projects that draw on as many tools from his toolkit as possible.

Besides being a Linux system administrator with a strong focus on virtualization and security tools, David writes technical documentation and user guides, and creates technology training videos.

His favorite technology tool is the one that should be just about ready for release tomorrow. Or Thursday.
