Architecting on AWS - Accelerator

This course covers all aspects of how to architect for the cloud over four-and-a-half-days. It covers topics from Architecting on AWS and Advanced Architecting on AWS to offer an immersive course in cloud architecture. You will learn how to design cloud architectures, starting small and working to large-scale enterprise level designs—and everything in between. Starting with the Well-Architected Framework, you will learn important architecting information for AWS services including: compute, storage, database, networking, security, monitoring, automation, optimization, benefits of de-coupling applications and serverless, building for resilience, and understanding costs
