AWS Trusted Advisor – Certification

AWS Trusted Advisor

Trusted Advisor inspects the AWS environment to make recommendations for system performance, saving money, availability and closing security gaps

Trusted Advisor checks the following four categories

  • Cost Optimization
    • Recommendations that can potentially save money by highlighting unused resources and opportunities to reduce your bill.
  • Security
    • Identification of security settings and gaps, inline with the best practices, that could make the AWS solution less secure
  • Fault Tolerance
    • Recommendations that help increase the resiliency and availability of the AWS solution by highlighting redundancy shortfalls, current service limits, and over-utilized resources.
  • Performance
    • Recommendations that can help to improve the speed and responsiveness of the applications
  • Service Limits (Circa Nov 2017 – Latest Addition)
    • Checks for service usage that is more than 80% of the service limit.
    • Values are based on a snapshot, so the current usage might differ.
    • Limit and usage data can take up to 24 hours to reflect any changes

AWS Certification Exam Practice Questions

  • Questions are collected from Internet and the answers are marked as per my knowledge and understanding (which might differ with yours).
  • AWS services are updated everyday and both the answers and questions might be outdated soon, so research accordingly.
  • AWS exam questions are not updated to keep up the pace with AWS updates, so even if the underlying feature has changed the question might not be updated
  • Open to further feedback, discussion and correction.

  1. There is currently a 5th category: Service Limits. This analyzes if you’re about to exceed capacity in a particular service.
