Hi, and welcome back to Data Storage, Domain Five in the CloudAcademy Solution Architect Professional for AWS Learning Path. In this group of lectures, we will explore AWS storage services, and how we can implement those in the most effective and efficient manner. So in our first lecture, we'll run through some of the core AWS storage services to refresh ourselves on those, and we'll explore how we can make architectural tradeoff decisions that involve storage and database options. And we'll go deeper on some of the replication and recovery methods we've discussed already. Then we'll examine some data storage architectures that are relevant to the Solution Architect Professional Exam. And of course, we'll explore some sample questions and scenarios to help us prepare for the certification test. Okay, let's get started.
