Why You Should Become an AWS Certified Solutions Architect
Hybrid cloud and on-premise environments now play a common role in enterprise IT solutions. It should be no surprise that AWS is the largest cloud platform provider in the world. Since its inception, AWS has grown to offer cloud services for just about anything any business might need. Building out that cloud solution can be complicated, though, and the way IT administrators prove that they have the experience to work with AWS is with the AWS Certified Solutions Architect certification.
The AWS Certified Solutions Architect exam covers a wide gamut of AWS products. It's a highly technical, general certification in much the same way the CompTia Network+ exam is for network administration. As such, to pass this exam, IT professionals will need to understand what each AWS product does, how it can be used, and any pitfalls each product might have.
Studying for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect exam will not be easy. IT professionals will need to know how services mix, which services are complementary to each other, and most importantly, how to build out a cloud solution using AWS optimizing for cost. This exam will cover building resilient architecture, securing cloud products, and configuring solutions for a mix of performance and cost.
