Transcript of "Amazon cloud certification introduction"

  1. 1. www.smartit-cloud.com Amazon- Certified Solutions Architect - Cloud
  2. 2. www.smartit-cloud.com AWS Certifications designate individuals who demonstrate knowledge, skills and proficiency with AWS services. The AWS Certification program is built around the three primary roles  Solutions Architect  SysOps Administrator  Developer These role-based certification credentials can be earned on three proficiency levels  Associate  Professional and  Master This course and presentation covers "Solutions Architect" role at an associate level certification. AWS Certification Program Overview
  3. 3. www.smartit-cloud.com Associate Level demonstrates you have the ability to identify and define requirements for an AWS-based application, as well as follow best practices for building secure and reliable applications on the AWS platform. The basic knowledge and skills required to pass these exams are detailed below. AWS Knowledge  Hands-on experience using AWS computer, networking, storage and database services  Professional experience architecting large scale distributed systems  Understanding of elasticity and scalability concepts  Understanding of network technologies as they relate to AWS AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate Level
  4. 4. www.smartit-cloud.com AWS Knowledge  A good understanding of all security features and tools that AWS provides and how they relate to traditional services  A strong understanding on how to interact with AWS services, including: AWS SDKs, AWS APIs, Command Line Interface, and AWS Cloud Formation  Hands-on experience with AWS deployment and management services AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate Level
  5. 5. www.smartit-cloud.com General IT Knowledge  Excellent understanding of typical multi-tier architectures: web servers (Apache, nginx, IIS), caching, application servers, and load balancers  Knowledge of message queuing and Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)  Network experience with route tables, access control lists, firewalls, NAT, HTTP, DNS, IP, and OSI An individual taking the AWS Solutions Architect – Associate Level exam can:  Identify and gather requirements in order to define a solution to be built using architecture best practices  Be capable of providing guidance on architectural best practices to developers and system administrators throughout the lifecycle of the project AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate Level
  6. 6. www.smartit-cloud.com Expectations  The table below lists the domains measured by this examination and the extent to which they are represented.
