AMA01 — Advanced Architecting on AWS


AMA01 - Advanced Architecting on AWS

Course description

In this course, each module presents a scenario with an architectural challenge to be solved. You will
examine available AWS services and features as solutions to the problem. You will gain insights by
participating in problem-based discussions and learning about the AWS services that you could apply to
meet the challenges. Over 3 days, the course goes beyond the basics of a cloud infrastructure and covers
topics to meet a variety of needs for AWS customers. Course modules focus on managing multiple AWS
accounts, hybrid connectivity and devices, networking with a focus on AWS Transit Gateway connectivity,
container services, automation tools for continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), security and
distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, data lakes and data stores, edge services, migration options,
and managing costs. The course concludes by presenting you with scenarios and challenging you to
identify the best solutions.


This course includes presentations, group discussions, use cases, videos, assessments, and hands-on labs.

Course objectives

In this course, you will learn to:

Identify the anomaly detection and protection services that AWS offers to defend against DDoS attacks
Identify ways to secure data in transit, at rest, and in use with AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) and AWS Secrets Manager
Determine the best data management solution based on frequency of access, and data query and analysis needs
Set up a data lake and examine the advantages of this type of storage configuration to crawl and query data in a lab environment
Identify solutions to optimize edge services to eliminate latency, reduce inefficiencies, and mitigate risks
Identify the components used to automate the scaling of global applications using geolocation and traffic control
Deploy and activate an AWS Storage Gateway file gateway and AWS DataSync in a lab environment
Review AWS cost management tools to optimize costs while ensuring speed and performance
Review migration tools, services, and processes that AWS provides to implement effective cloud operation models based on use cases and business needs
