Hi guys,

I work as a systems engineer and currently preparing for 70-533 Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions exam.
I would also like to master Amazon Web Services cloud product but at the moment can't figure out which path is best suitable for me.

Could you please advise which path I should go for, AWS Solutions Architect or AWS SysOps Administrator?

Thank you.
Best, sacredboy!

    It depends on what you see you doing in the future: Administration or architecting the environment. I am going for the AWS Solutions Architect, it appears to be most popular of the exams. There is quite a bit of overlap of the exams so some people take all three.

    Most people say to start with SA. The SysOps exam is a bit more difficult. It has more in depth scenario questions.

    As mentioned earlier, it depends on what your future goals are! Here's a great video to get you thinking about different AWS Certification paths that are available, plus check out this free eBook on How To Pass AWS Certifications.

    Linux Academy offers Certifications in all those topics (plus more). In fact, it looks like there's a $150 off sale going on right now!

    Can anybody, please, explain what is the major difference between Solutions Architect and SysOps in terms of duties or tasks one and the other is meant to do. 
    I am not talking about distinction of Solutions Architect and SysOps in terms of certification and all about it. Just what each does according to the titles.
    Best, sacredboy!
