  • Deploy Infrastructure as Code (IAC)

    In this course, you’ll learn how to deploy the underlying infrastructure components that provide security and services to our servers by writing scripts using CloudFormation, AWS’ tool for Infrastructure as Code. You will use CloudFormation to deploy Infrastructure patterns that are used in the industry broadly and can be readily used to deploy any cloud application. Like in the real world, you will begin with initial business requirements that you will turn into Cloud Architecture Diagrams. Then you will deploy this architecture using CloudFormation.

    Deploy a High-Availability Web App Using CloudFormation
  • Build CI/CD Pipelines, Monitoring & Logging
