Course description

AWS migration services make it easy for your business to migrate your data and virtual machines to the cloud. In this course we review all the migration services. We will start off with reviewing the benefits of the migration hub - a place to track the progress of your application migrations across multiple AWS and partner solutions. We then cover the AWS Application Discovery Service, which helps businesses with hundred to thousands of resources plan their migration projects by gathering information about their on-premises data centers.Next we dive into the AWS Database Migration Service, which, you guessed it, helps you migrate your databases to AWS quickly and securely. The next topic covers the AWS Server Migration Service, an agentless service which makes it easier and faster for you to migrate your thousands of on-premises workloads to AWS. And finally we look at AWS's mobile storage devices Snowball, which are a petabyte-scale data transport solution that uses secure appliances to transfer large amounts of data into and out of the AWS cloud.


The AWS Essentials course is for those who are new to Amazon Web Services. We also dive deeper into AWS's core services. This course assumes you've watched the previous parts in the series.
