Introducing a New Certification: AWS Solutions Architect - Professional Practice Exams

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional certification (SAP-C02) is a highly prestigious credential that demonstrates an individual's advanced knowledge and expertise in providing complex solutions within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform. This certification is specifically designed for professionals with industry experience designing and deploying scalable and secure applications on AWS.

Today, we are thrilled to announce the latest addition to our Amazon Web Services certification lineup: the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional certification!

What should you know before studying the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional?

Before studying for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional exam, it is important to understand the key aspects of this certification. This advanced-level certification is designed for individuals who already hold the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification and are seeking to further enhance their skills and knowledge in architecting and managing complex AWS solutions.

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional exam is considered to be of a high difficulty level, requiring careful and thorough preparation. It is recommended to have at least two years of hands-on experience in designing and deploying AWS cloud architectures before attempting this certification. This is probably the MOST difficult AWS Certification.

What should you know before studying the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional?

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, this certification is ideal for Solutions Architects who have already attained the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate (SAA-C03) certification and seek to validate their expertise further.

The exam requires a deep understanding of various AWS services and their integration capabilities, as well as the ability to make architectural decisions based on best practices and customer requirements. It covers a wide range of AWS services across various categories, similar to the Associate exam. However, the difficulty is way higher.

Let's review them:

  1. Advanced Architecting: Candidates will design and implement complex, scalable, and highly available architectures. This includes leveraging advanced AWS services such as AWS Lambda, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and Amazon API Gateway to build resilient and adaptable systems.

  2. High-Performance Architectures: This section optimizes performance and efficiency within AWS environments. Candidates will explore techniques for optimizing compute, storage, and database services, including Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, Amazon Aurora, and Amazon S3, to meet specific performance requirements and user demands.

  3. Data Storage and Management: Understanding the various AWS storage options and effectively managing data is crucial for AWS Solutions Architects. Topics include designing data storage solutions using services like Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Redshift, Amazon EBS, and Amazon S3 while considering factors such as durability, scalability, and access patterns.

  4. Hybrid Architectures: Candidates will learn how to design and deploy hybrid architectures that seamlessly integrate on-premises infrastructure with cloud services. This involves understanding networking concepts, VPN connectivity, and hybrid storage solutions using AWS Direct Connect and AWS Storage Gateway.

  5. Security and Compliance: Security is paramount in any cloud architecture. In this section, candidates will explore advanced security best practices, identity and access management using AWS IAM, AWS KMS encryption mechanisms, and implementing network security controls with Amazon VPC and AWS WAF to ensure compliance with industry standards and regulations.

  6. Cost Optimization Strategies: Optimizing costs while maintaining performance is a key responsibility of AWS Solutions Architects. This portion covers cost management best practices, leveraging AWS cost allocation tags, analyzing cost and usage data with AWS Cost Explorer, and implementing strategies to optimize spending across various AWS services and resources.

  7. Migration Planning and Execution: Understanding migration strategies and best practices is essential for architects migrating existing workloads to the cloud. This includes assessing application dependencies, selecting appropriate migration tools and services such as AWS Server Migration Service (SMS) and AWS Database Migration Service (DMS), and executing migration plans with minimal disruption to business operations.
