AWS(Associate Solutions Architect)

The course:

Cloud Computing is the most popular and most widely used innovations today in the world. This course for training is designed to prepare administrators, engineers, architects, and consultants for designing workload deployments on cloud with the Amazon Web Services platform. This course will teach you design principles, including strategies for Compute, Networking, Storage, DNS, RDS, monitoring, Server less computing, load balancing and much more. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge needed to securely design highly available and scalable systems, and you'll also be highly prepared for the AWS Certifications.
