Deploying Infrastructure on Amazon Web Services

(3 days)


Course Description

This course is designed to help individuals operate highly available and scalable infrastructure on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. In this course, we demonstrate how to effectively manage and support AWS resources. The course covers concepts such as creating virtual networks, provisioning infrastructure, creating custom machine images, monitoring utilization, and implementing a load balanced, autoscaled infrastructure.

Learning Objectives

  • Provision, scale, and distribute compute infrastructure using AWS
  • Create Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) resources such as subnets, network access control lists, and security groups
  • Monitor the health and utilization of AWS resources using Amazon CloudWatch
  • Create custom virtual machine images to satisfy business needs
  • Leverage AWS storage options for durable offsite backup using S3, EBS, and EFS
  • Dynamically handle demand with elastic load balancing and autoscaling
  • Create Cloud Formation templates to allow for simple and consistent deployments
