Learn about AWS Free Tier, and how you can use some AWS services for free.
Ever wondered what steps are involved in creating an AWS account? Hit that play button and follow along with this lesson to learn.
Take a quick tour of the AWS console. Learn how to find AWS services, preferences and documentation.
Documentation is often an under-rated and overlooked resource when preparing instructional content. Understanding where to access official documentation and it's importance is extremely valuable.
Ever wondered what IAM is, exactly? Here is your introduction to AWS Identity and Access Management.
Learn how to set up and configure IAM to meet AWS's "best practices" requirements.
Learn how to create IAM users and grant access to AWS services through IAM policies.
Users have more fun when they are working in groups! Learn how to manage groups, so you can more easily apply IAM policies to multiple users at once.
Granting access isn't just for users. Other AWS services need some love too. Learn how assigning roles to AWS services can grant them access to talk and communicate with other AWS services.
A quick review of AWS global infrastructure, covering how AWS is physically set up around the world.
Virtual Private Clouds can be a confusing concept to understand. Join us as we break it down into easy-to-understand pieces.
If you want resources in your VPC to have access to the Internet, then you better have an Internet Gateway attached to it. Learn how to manage IGWs here.
Routing is very important in making sure your AWS resources inside your VPC can reach the IGW. This lesson reviews how Route Tables work and why they are so important.
Everyone needs a little bit of security in their lives and so do VPCs and subnets! Learn about Network Access Control list and how it can provide a layer of security within your VPC.
Subnets, subnets, subnets! We got your subnets right over here! Learn how subnets are used in the context of the VPC.
Are you available? Well, AWS is always available, and it's through their many Availability Zones that AWS provides "Highly Available" cloud architecture.
Simple Storage Service, with a name like that why does it seem so complicated? Well, in this lesson we will break S3 down into simple components to make learning about S3 as simple as it's name indicates.
Buckets, and folders and objects – OH MY! Let's dive into S3 and start learning about it's main components.
Let's break down the various way that objects stored in S3 can be classified.
How long do you want your object to live? What kind of life do you want it to have? Plan out every aspect of your object's life with AWS S3 Lifecycles.
Buckets don't need security – it's just a bucket, right? Well, not every bucket is the same, and S3 buckets come with their own ability to grant/restrict access.
History, backups, tracking changes – do it all with object versioning!
What is EC2? How does it work? What are it's components? Just hit play and get all the answers you need.
Selecting the proper AMI is vital to how you use an EC2 instance. In this lesson, we review the basics of AMIs so you can make the decision that is right for you.
Instance types are where we get into the underlining hardware of the EC2 instance. Watch this lesson for an introduction to the different options you can select from.
Storage, storage and more storage! Elastic Block Store is going to be your most common type of storage or "hard drive" for your EC2 instances.
Security is an invaluable part of cloud architecture. Learn how security is managed on the instance level with AWS Security Groups.
Public and private IP addresses: What is the difference? Do I need both? Click "play" to find out.
Finally, we can put all the pieces together and actually launch an EC2 instance.
To SQL or to NoSQL, that is the question. Let's start off the database section with a brief overview of the different AWS database offerings.
Communication is important when managing cloud systems and architecture. SNS provides the ability to send messages and receive notifications for almost anything that occurs inside your account.
Let's walk through the processing of setting up the frame work for some SNS notifications.
Any good system administrator must be constantly monitoring the resources within a system. CloudWatch is AWS's tool for easy monitoring of almost any resource in your account.
Let's walkthrough the process of setting up metrics to monitor your systems and alarms to trigger notifications.
High availability and fault tolerance are terms you hear a lot when learning about AWS. Elastic Load Balancing is a key feature in allowing your cloud architecture to achieve both.
Let's walkthrough the process of creating an ELB!
