Description

This course is a "live" scenario discussion where the CloudAcademy team tackle a migration project. Our customer needs to migrate out of their current data center by a certain date. They also would like to modernise their business application. 

Our brief in the exercise is to deliver:
A target architecture which addresses the challenges described by the customer.

A migration plan detailing how to move the service to AWS with minimal interruption.

A recommendation on how to approach DR to achieve RPO of 24 hours and RTO of 4 hours.

An application optimization plan with a proposed enhancement roadmap.

As a scenario, this series of lectures is recorded "live" and so is less structured than other CloudAcademy courses. As a cloud professional you often have to think and design quickly,so we have recorded some of the content this way to best emulate the type of conditions you might experience in the working environment. Watching the team approach this brief can help you define your own approaches and style to problem solving. 

Intended audience: This course discusses AWS services so is best suited to students with some prior knowledge of AWS services. 

Pre-requisites: We recommend completing the Fundamentals of AWS learning path before beginning this course. 

Feedback: Please reach out to us at support@cloudacademy.com if you need help or to provide feedback or suggestions on this learning path.
