AWS SysOps Associate 2021: Application Containers
Modern applications are broken into smaller components, or microservices, which collectively comprise a larger application. Many of these microservices come in the form of containerized applications. Through this course, you'll explore application containers and how they serve as a logical boundary for running applications or application components. Examine how containers store app binaries, libraries, and configuration files and do not contain operating systems. You'll then learn more about managing Docker containers on a Linux host and container images in an AWS container registry. You'll wrap up by discovering how to deploy containers in AWS using the Elastic Container Service (ECS). After you are done with this course, you'll be able to manage and deploy containers in the AWS cloud. Further, you'll be closer to preparing for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate exam, SOA-C02.

AWS SysOps Associate 2021: Cryptography
Cryptography is used to secure sensitive information through algorithms that can encrypt or scramble data to ensure data integrity and authentication (hashing algorithms). Delve deeper into cryptography and surrounding concepts through this course. Begin by learning more about symmetric and asymmetric encryption before moving on to Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). You'll then explore the PKI hierarchy and certificate contents along with the certificate lifecycle. Next, you'll discover how to work with AWS Certificate Manager to create a private CA and provision certificates. You'll wrap this course up by getting a closer look at the AWS Key Management Service (KMS). Once you're done with this course, you'll be able to secure resources in the AWS cloud using cryptography and PKI. Moreover, you'll also be closer to preparing for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate exam, SOA-C02.

AWS SysOps Associate 2021: Identity & Access Management
Identity and access management (IAM) refers to the creation and configuration of identities and limited access to resources. Through this course, examine how resource access is secured within the AWS cloud. Begin by exploring IAM and identity federation before delving deeper into the steps involved in managing IAM users and groups using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, and AWS Tools for PowerShell. Next, you'll work with IAM policies and roles using the GUI and command-line tools. Moving on, you'll learn how to grant permissions to AWS resources, enable multifactor authentication (MFA), and manage AWS organizations and AWS Control Tower. You'll wrap up by discovering how to configure AWS single sign-on (SSO). After completing this course, you'll have a deeper understanding of identity and access management in the AWS cloud and be a step closer to preparing for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate exam, SOA-C02.

AWS SysOps Associate 2021: Managing AWS Costs
Cloud computing uses an ongoing operating expense (OPEX) model as opposed to the capital expenditure (CAPEX) model required to host IT equipment and services entirely on-premises. Use this course to learn how to set up various AWS cost management strategies. Begin by reviewing these strategies before practicing using tags for cost tracking. Next, analyze costs using the Cost Explorer tool and identify underutilized resources. Moving on, configure AWS budgets, EC2 spot instances, and EC2 as well as RDS reserved instances. Lastly, configure an AWS savings plan and work with consolidated billing. By the end of this course, you'll be able to set up cost-saving strategies for all your AWS services. Furthermore, this course will help you prepare for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate exam, SOA-C02.

AWS SysOps Associate 2021: AWS & Business Continuity
Business continuity ensures that business processes continue in the event of a disruption. This process includes disaster recovery planning, which strives to reduce downtime and data loss, and incident response plan implementation, which helps minimize impacts during an incident. In this course, you'll review both aforementioned methods before learning how to define AWS methods for achieving high availability, implementing load balancing, identifying horizontal and vertical scaling, and configuring AWS Auto Scaling. As you advance, you'll configure database replicas for high availability.
