In this course, each module presents a scenario with an architectural challenge to be solved. Students will examine available AWS services and features as solutions to the problem. Students will gain insights by participating in problem-based discussions and learning about the AWS services that they could apply to meet the challenges. Over 3 days, the course goes beyond the basics of a cloud infrastructure and covers topics to meet a variety of needs for AWS customers. Course modules focus on managing multiple AWS accounts, hybrid connectivity and devices, networking with a focus on AWS Transit Gateway connectivity, container services, automation tools for CI/CD, security and DDoS protection, data lakes and data stores, edge services, migration options, and managing costs. The course concludes by presenting students with scenarios and challenging them to identify the best solutions.
