Certificate Course in AWS Solutions Architect – Associate

Autonomous Program

SCDL is offering the cloud architecting course in collaboration with AWS Academy which showcases how some AWS customers have designed their infrastructures and the strategies and services that they implemented. Cloud computing architecture refers to the components and subcomponents required for cloud computing. These components consist of a front end platform, back end platform, a cloud based delivery and a network. Combined, these components make up cloud computing architecture. Cloud solutions design is based on architectural procedures and methods that have been developed over last 20+ years. Cloud Architecting is the emerging trend nowadays. As architectural solutions can differ depending on industry, type of applications and size of business, this course emphasizes best practices for the AWS Cloud and it recommends various design patterns to help you think through the process of architecting optimal IT solutions on AWS. Cloud Architecting covers the fundamentals of building IT infrastructure on Amazon Web Services or AWS. The course is designed to teach solutions architects how to optimize the use of the AWS Cloud by understanding AWS services and how these services fit into cloud-based solutions. It also provides a brief overview of cloud concepts, AWS core services, security, architecture, pricing and support which is the foundation for Cloud Architecting.

Objectives of this certificate are:

● Design and deploy dynamically scalable, highly available, fault-tolerant and reliable applications on AWS
● Select appropriate AWS services to design and deploy an application based on given requirements
● Migrate complex, multi-tier applications on AWS
● Design and deploy enterprise-wide scalable operations on AWS
● Implement cost-control strategies

Career Opportunities:

A cloud architect is responsible for converting technical requirements of a project into architecture and design that will guide the final product. Often the cloud architects are responsible for bridging the gap between complex business problems and solutions in the cloud. Other members of a technical team, including DevOps engineers and developers work with cloud architect to ensure that right technologies are being built.
