Hi All,

I'm a Splunk admin who build and manages the on premises Splunk platform, now I have to build a Splunk platform on AWS and I have no Idea on AWS. Zero Knowledge in AWS.

Can you please guide me from where I need to start learning AWS. My company provides the plural-sight leanings and not sure where to start. Any free videos from any website\YouTube is fine for me.

thanks in advance.

Regards,
Thippesh

If you just want to use Splunk on AWS, try

https://aws.amazon.com/quickstart/architecture/splunk-enterprise/
https://s3.amazonaws.com/quickstart-reference/splunk/enterprise/latest/doc/splunk-enterprise-on-the-...

For AWS fundamentals , there are lot of materials available online and also variety of training from Amazone itself. If you already have a subscription in pluralsight, you may start from https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/aws-system-admin-fundamentals

Happy Splunking!

plural-sight is a great source of information. i also use udemy. note that not all the courses there are with the same level , and some of them are not worth the time of watching them, so you should read reviews of the course before taking it.

more than that udemy have a lot of promotions and sales, and you can find courses in funny price (like 10$ - that is something i can invest to learn something new) , put some interesting course in the cart and wait for promoand sale , don't pay the full price.

good luck

Hi Renjith,

thanks for you suggestion.

also it would be great to know what are the courses I need to go through to be able to build the complete platform i.e. Learning Path.

Thanks,
