Working with Elastic Load Balancing

This lab introduces the concept of Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). In this lab you will use ELB to load balance a set of web servers in an Availability Zone. You will launch a pair of Amazon EC2 instances, bootstrap them to install web servers and content, and then access the instances independently using Amazon EC2 DNS records. Next, you will set up ELB, add your instances to the ELB, and then access the ELB DNS record to watch your requests load balance between servers. Finally, you will look at ELB metrics in CloudWatch. To successfully complete this lab, you should be familiar with the AWS Management Console.

Working with Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

This lab focuses on Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), a key underlying storage mechanism for Amazon EC2 instances. In this lab, you will learn how to create an EBS volume, attach it to an instance, apply a file system to the volume, and then take a snapshot backup. To successfully complete this lab, you should be familiar with basic Amazon EC2 usage and with basic Linux server administration. You should feel comfortable using the Linux command-line tools.

Creating Amazon EC2 Instances (for Linux)

This lab leads you through the steps to launch and configure your first virtual machine in the Amazon cloud. You will learn about using Amazon Machine Images to launch Amazon EC2 Instances, creating Key Pairs for SSH authentication, securing network access to Amazon EC2 Instances with Security Groups, automatically configuring Amazon EC2 Instances with bootstrapping scripts, and attaching Elastic IPs to Amazon EC2 Instances to provide static Internet addresses. At the end of this lab you will have deployed a simple web server which includes an informational page to display details of your virtual web server instance.

Caching Static Files with Amazon CloudFront

This lab demonstrates how to start distributing your web content with Amazon CloudFront by taking a simple static website in Amazon S3 and integrating it with Amazon CloudFront to deliver your website content from AWS edge locations. The majority of this lab will focus on creating an Amazon CloudFront distribution with the AWS Management Console, and then adapting the existing web pages to use Amazon CloudFront.

Creating an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) with AWS CloudFormation

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.
