About the course

High Availability, Fault Tolerance, Scalability, and Architecting for Disaster Recovery (DR) are crucial skills to understand and apply in any architecture in IT  in general and Cloud computing in particular. We cannot expect solutions using the cloud to overlook these critical pillars. This course explains these pillars and how they are applied in AWS services or how to apply them in services that do not have these features built-in.
