AWS Cloud Architect - Proficient

If you've already got a good understanding of the AWS platform and wish to move into the job role of cloud architect, then this is the right place for you. Here we build upon the topics already covered in the Starter and Intermediate training plans, so check those out if you haven't already.

We kick things off by looking at cloud security, covering KMS key encryption, AWS CloudHSM, and secrets manager — three services that will help you secure your AWS infrastructure. After that, we cover the serverless compute offerings of Elastic Beanstalk, VMware, and AWS Lambda.

You'll build upon your existing knowledge of Amazon S3 by looking at encryption, cost optimization, and data analytics within the service. We'll also look at automating database deployments, high availability in Amazon Aurora, using Secrets Manager to store RDS credentials, and logging data and querying in non-relational database services.

We'll show you how to migrate from an existing data center to AWS, before moving on to look at networking and logging. To round off this training plan, you will have a go at using several developer tools in a live AWS environment in order to troubleshoot and make updates to a pre-existing continuous deployment stack.
