AWS-ARCACC - Architecting on AWS - Accelerator

Architecting on AWS – Accelerator is designed for audiences who can learn and understand new information at a rapid pace. This course covers various aspects of how to architect for the cloud over 5 days. It covers topics from the Architecting on AWS and Advanced Architecting on AWS courses to offer a consolidated course in cloud architecture. Architectural solutions differ depending on the industry, types of applications, and business size. AWS Authorized Instructors emphasize best practices using the AWS Well-Architected Framework and guide you through the process of designing optimal IT solutions based on real-life scenarios. The modules focus on computing, storage, database, networking, security, monitoring, automation, containers, serverless architecture, edge services, and backup and recovery. They also focus on optimization, the benefits of loose coupling applications and serverless components, building resilience, and understanding costs. Using hands-on labs, you will apply knowledge from lectures to gain skills.
