AWS SysOps Administrator 2017 Training

Quick Enroll

Course#: TP2636

This course prepares sysops administrators for the Amazon Web Services platform. AWS is the hottest technology on the planet today. This course is architected in such a way that an authorized certification test may be taken when the student graduates.

This is a 3-day course. This course explores some of the more advanced aspects of the AWS platform from an Administrator point of view and it is recommended that you do this course after completing the AWS Certified Solutions Architect course or AWS Certified Developer Course, both of which are available and cover the basics of AWS.

In this course we will start with CloudWatch, the main monitoring solution offered by AWS. We'll explore different CloudWatch metrics and how to analyze these metrics. We'll then move on to High Availability and how we can build highly resilient and fault tolerant architectures in the cloud. We then explore deployment and provisioning, data management, OpsWorks, Security on AWS and Networking. AWS Certification Sysops is one of the key IT certifications to have today.
