Are AWS Experts Privy to Esoteric Knowledge?

AWS experts are privy to esoteric knowledge - information that is not easily accessible to the average person. This type of knowledge can give these experts a distinct advantage when it comes to working with AWS systems.

In this blog post, we will explore some of the esoteric knowledge that AWS experts possess. We will also discuss how this information can help you be more successful when using AWS.


What does esoteric mean in relation to AWS experts?

Esoteric most commonly means obscure and only understood or intended to be understood by a small number of people with special (and perhaps secret) knowledge. It's often used to describe knowledge that's only intended to be revealed to people who have been initiated into a certain group. (

So are AWS Experts guardians of esoteric knowledge?

Most people who work with AWS on a daily basis would likely consider themselves experts. After all, they've put in the time to learn how to use all of the different services and have become quite proficient at it. But are they true experts? Or are they just really good at using AWS?

There's a big difference between the two. True experts have a deep understanding of how AWS works and can often find solutions to problems that others wouldn't even think to look for. They know the ins and outs of the various services and how to configure them for optimal performance. They're also always keeping up with the latest changes and developments so that they can provide their clients with the best possible service.

So, are AWS Experts guardians of esoteric knowledge? No, they're just really good at using AWS. But that doesn't mean that they're not valuable members of any team. Their skills and expertise can make a big difference in the success of any project.

What types of knowledge are AWS experts privy to?

AWS experts are privy to a wide range of knowledge about Amazon Web Services and how to best utilize its various features. They keep up to date on the latest AWS releases and news, and have a deep understanding of how AWS works. Furthermore, they know how to configure AWS services for optimal performance and cost.

In addition, AWS experts are often able to troubleshoot problems with AWS services and can provide guidance on best practices for using AWS. As such, they play an essential role in helping organizations make the most of their investment in Amazon Web Services.

So to be considered an AWS expert you would expect them to have good knowledge of:

  • AWS best practise
  • Have at least an entry-level AWS certification
  • AWS services - potentially specialised in a few core areas, as the platform is ever-expanding
  • Ability to analyse costs and recommend changes
  • Ability to architect an implementation of AWS taking into account performance vs cost
  • Security hardening an AWS deployment
