code: AWS-COA

This course teaches systems operators and anyone performing systems operations functions how to manage and operate automatable and repeatable deployments of networks and systems on AWS. You will learn about systems operations functions, such as installing, configuring, automating, monitoring, securing, maintaining, and troubleshooting these services, networks, and systems. The course also covers specific AWS features, tools, and best practices related to these functions.

Course objectives

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Identify the AWS services that support the different phases of Operational Excellence, an AWS Well-Architected Framework pillar
  • Manage access to AWS resources using AWS accounts and organizations and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  • Maintain an inventory of in-use AWS resources by using AWS services, such as AWS Systems Manager, AWS CloudTrail, and AWS Config
  • Develop a resource deployment strategy using metadata tags, Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), and AWS Control Tower to deploy and maintain an AWS Cloud environment
  • Automate resource deployment by using AWS services, such as AWS CloudFormation and AWS Service Catalog
  • Use AWS services to manage AWS resources through SysOps lifecycle processes, such as deployments and patches
  • Configure a highly available cloud environment that uses AWS services, such as Amazon Route 53 and Elastic Load Balancing, to route traffic for optimal latency and performance
  • Configure AWS Auto Scaling and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to scale out your cloud environment based on demand
  • Use Amazon CloudWatch and associated features, such as alarms, dashboards, and widgets, to monitor your cloud environment
  • Manage permissions and track activity in your cloud environment by using AWS services, such as AWS CloudTrail and AWS Config
  • Deploy your resources to an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), establish necessary connectivity to your Amazon VPC, and protect your resources from disruptions of service
  • State the purpose, benefits, and appropriate use cases for mountable storage in your AWS cloud Environment
  • Explain the operational characteristics of object storage in the AWS Cloud, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon S3 Glacier
  • Build a comprehensive cost model to help gather, optimize, and predict your cloud costs by using services such as AWS Cost Explorer and the AWS Cost & Usage Report

Intended audience
