Learn about cloud migration strategies and dive into our recommended five-phase plan for migrating existing workloads to the AWS Cloud

Migrating to AWS focuses on planning and migrating existing workloads to the AWS Cloud. The course covers various cloud migration strategies with a detailed discussion on each phase of the migration process, including portfolio discovery, application migration planning and design, migration execution, and post-migration validation and application optimization. The first half of the course provides students with an overview of migration planning principles and best practices.
