Description

Course Description

The AWS exam guide outlines that 60% of the Solutions Architect–Associate exam questions could be on the topic of designing highly-available, fault-tolerant, cost-efficient, scalable systems. This course teaches you to recognize and explain the core architecture principles of high availability, fault tolerance, and cost optimization. We then step through the core AWS components that can enable highly available solutions when used together so you can recognize and explain how to design and monitor highly available, cost efficient, fault tolerant, scalable systems.

Course Objectives

  • Identify and recognize cloud architecture considerations such as functional components and effective designs
  • Define best practices for planning, designing, and monitoring in the cloud
  • Develop to client specifications, including pricing and cost
  • Evaluate architectural trade-off decisions when building for the cloud
  • Apply best practices for elasticity and scalability concepts to your builds
  • Integrate with existing development environments

Intended Audience

This course is for anyone preparing for the Solutions Architect–Associate for AWS certification exam. We assume you have some existing knowledge and familiarity with AWS, and are specifically looking to get ready to take the certification exam.

Pre-Requisites
