    Hi Fernando,

    Thank you for message.

    Let me answer this particular point that you mention here:

    Many questions simply hyperfocus on a specific line of a document or blog, and use that to decide a correct answer. Often times that line is further clarified later in the AWS documentation, changing it’s meaning.

    I took the first iteration of the official AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional exam (SAP-C00) last 2019, then the second one (SAP-C01) and its latest version (SAP-C02). This exam is quite difficult since its scenarios offer two or more related options that can meet the requirements, but only one is the MOST suitable in terms of operational overhead, cost, and other factors mentioned.

    I’ve seen your posts in our forum, and we appreciate your raising valid concerns. One case is a missing/ambiguous term for “Amazon CloudWatch Alarms” where we only added the term “metric threshold”:


    Technically for the above, you do create a custom metric name as part of your CloudWatch Alarm creation process, as showcased in my response in the thread above. Nonetheless, we acknowledge this shortcoming and have refactored the scenario to avoid ambiguity.

    However, you do have one thread here where BOTH the keywords in the scenario and the official AWS documentation match IN VERBATIM. You kept insisting of using a “throughput-intensive” solution over a “throughput-oriented” storage option, even though the rationale is backed up by three or more AWS documentation, including the AWS product pages.

    We’ll continue answering the questions you posted here, and if there are issues on our side, we’re happy to fix them; but we won’t be swayed over to your opinion when the official AWS documentation clearly supports our provided answer.
