With an annual revenue of $25.65 billion in 2018, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a leader in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), supporting everything from Internet of Things and artificial intelligence to augmented reality and analytics. AWS grew by a whopping 45% in Q4 2018, and it is typically the first beachhead for enterprises before they take to a multi-cloud approach.


AWS offers every benefit you’d expect from the cloud, and is vastly superior to other cloud service providers in the market in terms of data availability and high-transfer stability.


Cognixia’s Cloud Computing with AWS course begins by discussing the basics of AWS and Cloud Computing, then moves on to discussing more advanced concepts such as service models (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). We wrap it all up in a deep dive into details on particular elements of the AWS platform.
