Course Overview Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Elias Khnaser, and I'd like to welcome you to my course, AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional. AWS is the world's leading cloud platform provider. It has revolutionized and modernized the way we do IT. Today, AWS's certifications are the hottest and most sought after in the industry, especially for individuals interesting in the role of cloud architect and cloud engineering. Some of the major topics that we'll cover in this course include Consolidated Billing, Cross Account Access, AWS Directory Service, CloudHSM, Distributed Denial of Service, IPS and IDS, Direct Connect, and much, much more. By the end of this course, you'll be well prepared to sit and pass the certification exam. And you'll have the knowledge needed to design advanced AWS deployment. However, before beginning this course, you should have a solid working knowledge of AWS. A great first step to acquiring this knowledge is to complete the other AWS courses offered on Pluralsight, namely Amazon Web Services Certified SysOps Administrator - Associate, Amazon Web Services (AWS) Fundamentals for System Administrators. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to design advanced AWS environments with the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional course at Pluralsight.
