Course projects

This Cloud Architect certification training includes industry-relevant projects from various industries to help you demonstrate your cloud architect skills. Below are the details on projects you will be working on

Set up your organisations blog with cloud specifications

The blogging team would like to use their own development copy of the WordPress instance so that any changes don’t impact the live copy. You will set up a WordPress blog for your organization using defined specifications with Amazon Cloud, AMI and Auto Scaling.


Test new applications using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

The development team requires you to create a small Linux instance for testing a new application. You will create the EC2 instance as per defined specifications. A few days later, the development team informs you that they want to move the instance into production, so they want you to change the specifications of the instance.


Distribute content using Amazon cloud object storage (S3)

You have been asked to deploy a content portal or portal site to the global offices of your company. You need to prevent access to the content in France and Australia, but be able to audit who is accessing the site. The content does not change very often; however, some of the files are very large, and you must find a solution to minimize end user latency.


Host web applications and performance monitoring

You will assist OsCrop management in building a highly available web application. As they lack the team to manage the environment, they are exploring the option of Azure PaaS (Web Apps) for its web hosting. OsCrop’s user pattern for this application is sporadic in nature; it can expect a spike in traffic at any moment. Additionally, the team is looking to adopt a proper monitoring mechanism to track the details of the application's performance. To solve these issues and optimise the process, the team is looking to utilise Azure Auto Scaling capabilities to manage this.
