Welcome to Pluralsight, my name is Elias Khnaser, and I'd like to welcome you to my course, Amazon Web Services Certified SysOps Administrator Associate. AWS is the world's leading cloud platform provider. It has revolutionized and modernized the way we do IT. Today, AWS certifications are the hottest and most sought-after in the industry, especially for individuals interested in the role of cloud architect, cloud engineer, or cloud administrator. Some of the major topics that we'll cover in this course include in-depth VPC configuration, configuring Elastic Load Balancer, ELB, configuring Auto Scaling, configuring Route 53, working with Identity and Access Management, and much, much more. By the end of this course, you'll be well prepared to sit and pass the certification exam, and you'll have the knowledge needed to implement various AWS services. However, before beginning this course, you should have a solid understanding of AWS. A great first step to acquiring this knowledge is to complete the Amazon Web Services AWS Fundamentals for System Administrators course on Pluralsight.
