Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a flexible and scalable cloud computing platform. Architecting applications in the cloud presents new opportunities and challenges. To address these new opportunities and challenges, AWS has created a three-day training - Architecting with AWS - where students learn how to design and use AWS services for common IT applications and how to take full advantage of cloud scalability and elasticity. Students learn and discuss established patterns and reference architectures to use in the cloud. Architecting with AWS uses a combination of lecture, discussion, and hands-on exercises to help students understand AWS architecture best practices and gain knowledge that can be taken back to their teams.


In this course you will learn how to:

  • Make architectural decisions based on AWS architectural principles and best practices
  • Leverage AWS services to make your infrastructure scalable, reliable, and highly available
  • Leverage AWS Managed Services to enable greater flexibility and resiliency in an infrastructure
  • Make an AWS-based infrastructure more efficient to increase performance and reduce costs
  • Use the Well-Architected Framework to improve architectures with AWS solutions

Target Audience

This course is intended for Solutions Architects and Solution Design Engineers, and anyone who needs to understand the scope of cloud architectures.
