Networking and Content Delivery

  • Setting up Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and subnets
  • Configuring security groups and network access control lists (NACLs)
  • Implementing content delivery with Amazon CloudFront and AWS Global Accelerator

Database Services

  • Overview of AWS database services: RDS, DynamoDB, Aurora, etc.
  • Choosing the right database service based on requirements
  • Designing highly available and scalable database architectures

Security and Identity

  • Implementing identity and access management (IAM) for secure access control
  • Managing user permissions and roles in AWS IAM
  • Configuring network security with AWS Security Groups and NACLs

Monitoring and Management

  • Setting up alarms and notifications for resource monitoring
  • Automating AWS resource management tasks with AWS CloudFormation and AWS CLI

High Availability and Disaster Recovery

  • Designing fault-tolerant architectures with AWS Availability Zones and Regions
  • Implementing disaster recovery strategies with AWS services
  • Configuring backup and restore solutions for AWS resources

Scalability and Performance Optimization

  • Designing scalable architectures with AWS Auto Scaling and Elastic Load Balancing
  • Optimizing performance with AWS services: CloudFront, Route 53, etc.
  • Implementing caching strategies for improved performance

Cost Optimization

  • Understanding AWS pricing models: on-demand, reserved instances, etc.
  • Cost allocation and tagging strategies for cost management
  • Implementing cost optimization techniques: rightsizing, instance scheduling, etc.

DevOps Practices and Tools

  • Integrating AWS services with DevOps tools: AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodePipeline, etc.
  • Implementing continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines
  • Automating infrastructure provisioning and management with AWS tools

Case Studies and Best Practices

  • Real-world case studies of AWS architecture designs and implementations

  • Architectural design patterns and considerations for various use cases

Project Work and Labs

  • Hands-on labs and exercises to reinforce concepts learned in the course
  • Designing and implementing AWS architectures for real-world scenarios
  • Peer collaboration and feedback on project development

Exam Preparation and Certification

  • Tips and strategies for preparing for AWS Certified Solutions Architect exams
  • Practice exams and mock tests to assess readiness for certification exams
  • Guidance on exam registration and scheduling


  • Basic understanding of cloud computing concepts and IT infrastructure
  • Familiarity with networking concepts (e.g., IP addressing, subnets) is beneficial
  • No prior experience with AWS is required, but participants should be comfortable with technology and willing to learn

Target Audience:

  • IT professionals, system administrators, and architects interested in designing AWS architectures
  • Developers seeking to learn how to deploy and manage applications on AWS
  • Solutions architects looking to validate their skills and prepare for AWS certification exams
  • Students and enthusiasts interested in cloud computing and AWS


The course can be conducted over a period of 10-12 weeks, with classes scheduled for a few hours each week.


The AWS Architecture course equips participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to design scalable, reliable, and cost-effective cloud solutions using Amazon Web Services. By covering architectural best practices, design patterns, and hands-on exercises, participants will be well-prepared to architect and deploy AWS solutions for various use cases and business requirements.
