Introduction to AWS Cloud Computing

Getting started with Amazon Web Services (AWS)

  • Creating accounts and analyzing the cost breakdown
  • Evaluating Service Level Agreements (SLA)
  • Console, command–line tools and API

Overview of the architecture

  • EC2
  • S3
  • EBS
  • Beanstalk
  • RDS
  • VPC
  • CloudFront
  • SimpleDB
  • SQS
  • CloudWatch

Achieving Agility with EC2

Managing the EC2 infrastructure

  • Browsing Amazon Machine Images (AMI)
  • Specifying security groups and key pairs

Provisioning resources

  • Evaluating Elastic Block Store (EBS) and instance store root devices
  • Assigning elastic IP addresses
  • Mapping instance types to computing needs

Implementing Durable and Reliable Storage

Storing data in the cloud

  • Persisting off–instance storage with EBS volumes
  • Creating backups with snapshots
  • Achieving high durability with SimpleStorage Service
  • Transmitting data in/out of the Amazon cloud

Simplifying the database infrastructure

  • Achieving high availability of nonrelational data with SimpleDB
  • Effortlessly implementing a relational database with Relational Database Service (RDS)

Creating cost–effective distributed solutions

  • Decoupling applications with Simple Queue Service
  • Leveraging CloudFront for high–performance edge cache content delivery
  • Delivering static and streaming content

Adapting EC2 to Your Business Needs

Customizing virtual machines

  • Modifying existing images
  • Creating new images off of running instances
  • Converting an instance store AMI to an EBS AMI

Creating an AWS cloud architecture

  • Applying best practices for a cloud solution
  • Selecting a cloud setup for different use case scenarios

Handling Dynamic Resource Requirements

Monitoring from inside or outside of the cloud

  • Visualizing utilization metrics with CloudWatch
  • Setting alarms to send and receive notifications

Transparently scaling to meet load variations

  • Distributing incoming traffic with elastic load balancing
  • Dynamically adding and removing instances with Auto Scaling
  • Setting capacity thresholds

Hosting Applications with Elastic Beanstalk

Improving application delivery with Platform as a Service (PaaS)

  • Deploying scalable applications on the AWS cloud
  • Selecting and launching an application environment

Managing application environments

  • Customizing and configuring platform stacks
  • Provisioning application resources with CloudFormation

AWS Security Features

Controlling account security

  • Configuring access credentials
  • Managing users with Identity Access Management (IAM)

Leveraging the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • Launching EC2 instances in private subnets for extra security
  • Bridging EC2 instances to your internal network with a VPN
  • Organizing EC2 instances in separate subnets with a VPC
