Hello and welcome. My name is Carlos Rivas, and I'm a senior AWS Content Creator here at Cloud Academy. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions using the details shown on the screen. Or you can always get in touch with us by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com, where one of our cloud experts will reply to your question. Amazon offers a broad range of compute options available to you. Picking the right one is an important first step that will affect your application performance, costs and future scalability. 

In this course, let's go ahead and explore the various options available and see how we can match these with our business requirements. By the end of this course, you should be able to make the right decisions regarding compute options available to you in AWS. Some of the key points we'll be covering in this course include: Virtual machine options for your applications, options for new software development projects, serverless options where AWS manages the infrastructure for you, and containers which can be deployed in a traditional server or serverless fashion. 

This course is meant for those new to cloud computing or those facing the challenge of deploying an application to AWS with very specific business requirements. Because this course is exploratory in nature, you don't need any prior knowledge of AWS to benefit from watching it. One last thing, it's helpful to be familiar with your business requirements, whether it be a legacy application that you're migrating to the cloud, a new software development project that you're starting from scratch or an already existing cloud application that need to be adjusted in regard to cause availability or performance. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, it would be greatly appreciated if you could contact support@cloudacademy.com. With that out of the way, let's get started.

Software Development has been my craft for over 2 decades. In recent years, I was introduced to the world of "Infrastructure as Code" and Cloud Computing.
I loved it! -- it re-sparked my interest in staying on the cutting edge of technology.

Colleagues regard me as a mentor and leader in my areas of expertise and also as the person to call when production servers crash and we need the App back online quickly.

My primary skills are:
★ Software Development ( Java, PHP, Python and others )
★ Cloud Computing Design and Implementation
★ DevOps: Continuous Delivery and Integration
