3 Steps 5 hours 12 Credits
In this quest, you’ll learn to work with services related to Compute and Networking, including Amazon EC2, Amazon Elastic Load Balancing, and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
Objectives:This quest is designed to teach you how to work with AWS services for Compute and Networking.
This lab provides you with a basic overview of launching, resizing, managing, and monitoring an Amazon EC2 instance.
This lab will demonstrate how to create an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network using AWS CloudFormation. Note: This lab is a more of a walkthrough of a template rather than "learn how to build it". You will walk through the sections of an AWS CloudFormation template and get explanations for each step. You will then launch the AWS CloudFormation template to create a four-subnet Amazon VPC that spans two Availability Zones and a NAT that allows servers in the private subnets to communicate with the Internet in order to download packages and updates.
This lab introduces the basics of Auto Scaling, highlighting multiple Auto Scaling use cases and the command-line tools used for Auto Scaling configuration. After completing this lab you will have configured and tested an elastic web farm which automatically scales capacity to accommodate load. In addition you will have explored a steady state use case in which Auto Scaling is used to maintain high availability of critical resources.
