Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the most widely used cloud platforms, and the top pick for many organizations looking to scale and reduce costs by adopting a cloud infrastructure strategy. This course explores AWS from the architect’s perspective, focusing on the foundations you need to build scalable and reliable cloud-based application architectures. Instructor Jeff Winesett covers everything from high-level principles and best practices to hands-on implementation, optimization, and security. He takes three different approaches—manual, automated, and serverless—so you can see how AWS fits a variety of workflows and architectures. Each lesson is backed with practical examples, grounding services like Elastic Load Balancing, RDS, DynamoDB, and CloudFront in a real-world context.

Topics include:

  • Cloud concepts
  • Cloud best practices
  • Creating a new AWS account
  • Managing IAM groups, roles, and permissions
  • EC2 regions and availability zones
  • Launching a new EC2 instance
  • Setting up Elastic Load Balancing
  • Creating a MySQL RDS database
  • Autoscaling
  • Using Elastic Beanstalk
  • Caching
  • Serverless architectures with AWS
  • Lambda and the Gateway API
  • Decoupling with SQS, SWF, and SNS
  • Controlling costs
