Rock Mutchler shares best practices for designing and deploying resilient, fault-tolerant systems on AWS and offers deep dives into managed versus unmanaged services, monitoring and observability, high-availability design patterns, fault-tolerant and self-healing systems, disaster recovery and business continuity approaches, and DDoS mitigation.

What you'll learn, and how you can apply it

  • Understand tried and true methodologies for implementing resilient, highly available, fault-tolerant infrastructures on AWS
  • Explore the spectrum of AWS services available for disaster recovery and business continuity and analyze the cost and benefits trade-offs of each
  • Learn architectural best practices for the AWS Well-Architected Framework in the areas of security, reliability, performance, and cost optimization
  • Learn how to implement a serverless architecture.
  • Learn how to avoid or mitigate DDoS attacks
