Resilient Architectures on AWS with Practical Solutions
What you'll learn
- Guided Hands-on Disaster Recovery Architectures and their Recovery Characteristics
- Architectural Principles to Meet Specific Recovery Time and Recovery Point Objectives
- Difference between Continuous Backup (point in time recovery) and Scheduled Backups
- Continuous Replication options to Minimize Data Loss
- Standby and Active Infrastructure to Reduce Downtime
- This is an intermediate course (and not for beginners)
- You need an AWS account with administrative access to complete the labs
- You also need to be familiar with EC2, ELB, IAM, and Databases
Hi and Welcome to the Resilient Architectures on AWS with Practical Solutions course
This course teaches you how to design and implement disaster recovery architectures that minimize downtime and data loss.
You'll deploy a multi-tier application and evaluate Backup and Restore, Pilot Light, Warm Standby, and Multi-Region Active-Active solutions.
Additionally, you'll learn strategies for recovering from malicious and accidental data loss, as well as regional failures.
The course also covers techniques for reducing recovery time (RTO) and data loss (RPO) using DynamoDB Global Tables and Aurora Global Database.
I am Chandra Lingam, and I am your instructor.
In this course, you will learn:
Key concepts and terminologies related to disaster recovery
The concept of "Everything Fails, All the Time" as espoused by Werner Vogles
The meaning of resiliency and availability, and how they differ
The distinction between fault tolerance and high availability and why high availability alone is not sufficient for disaster-proofing
Hands-on labs to apply the concepts learned
You will deploy a multi-tier web application using DynamoDB Global Table, Lambda, API Gateway, EC2, Elastic Load Balancer, and Route 53
Explore backup and restore options using AWS Backup, configure point-in-time-recovery (PITR), schedule backups and maintain copies in a second region
Simulate malicious data loss and corruption and learn how to recover the data
Handle the loss of a region using Backup and Restore
Configure the App in Pilot Light mode and observe how it minimizes data loss
Upgrade the infrastructure as Warm Standby and how it helps to reduce recovery time
Look at the multi-site active-active configuration for a zero-downtime solution
Learn how DR changes with relational databases such as RDS and Aurora
Configure point-in-time-recovery, schedule backup, and continuous replication
Perform both Managed Failover and Unplanned Failover to a DR Region using Aurora Global Database
This is an intermediate level course, you need to have an AWS account with administrative access and be familiar with EC2, ELB, IAM, and Databases. I am looking forward to meeting you!
