AWS training course provides a hands-on way of learning AWS where students launch resources – server, databases, load-balancers – in the AWS public cloud and learn by doing. Education imparted to candidates will consist of right mix of theory and hands-on lab exercises to make the topics interesting with a structured flow.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most advanced, comprehensive and secure cloud computing platform . When it was launched, there were not many takers, but soon everyone understood the importance of cloud computing and how an organisation can save lots of money by storing data in the cloud. This also prompted lot of software professionals to shift focus on AWS. Now, AWS has become a career in itself.
Note: The topics covered in this course might get slightly adjusted depending on the cumulative decision made by the candidates who have signed up for the course.
Candidates who aspire to learn new technology or to understand the benefits of using AWS to build applications.
We expect candidates to have basic knowledge in networking, security, web servers.
