This is another signature workshop of ours at KPI Consulting . The course agenda and topics that we deliver are discussed at length.

DevOps with AWS

DevOps with AWS

The current  Market size of Devops is exponentially growing at high speed as the high quality application services amongst enterprices are rising and expected to grow as depicted by (Market&markets) from USD 2.90 Billion in 2017 to USD 10.31 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 24.7% 

Hence there's huge demand in understanding & learning Devop tools along with Cloud .Cloud computing is expected to generate $266 billion in revenue this year, according to Gartner, and balloon by another 30% before 2023.Esp AWS Cloud has off-late increased significant share in private cloud space.

Our Devops with AWS program covers all "must-know topics " about Devops and AWS cloud.Post this program learner can able to 

  • Understand the principal concepts and practices behind the DevOps methodology
  • Design and implement an infrastructure on AWS for multiple DevOps development projects
  • Use AWS CloudFormation and AWS OpsWorks to deploy the infrastructure necessary to create development, test, and production environments
  • Use AWS CodeCommit and AWS CodeBuild to understand the array of options for enabling a Continuous Integration environment in AWS
  • Use AWS Code Pipeline to design and implement a Continuous Integration and Delivery pipeline on AWS
  • Implement several common Continuous Deployment use cases using AWS technologies, including blue/green deployment and A/B testing
  • Distinguish between the array of application deployment technologies available on AWS (including AWS CodeDeploy, AWS OpsWorks, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon EC2 Container Service, and Amazon EC2 Container Registry), and decide which technology best fits a given scenario.
  • Use Amazon EC2 Systems Manager for patch management
  • Leverage Automated Testing in different stages of a CI/CD pipeline
  • Fine-tune the applications you deliver on AWS for high performance and use AWS tools and technologies to monitor your application and environment for potential issues
