Amazon Web Services (AWS) dominates the public cloud market by a huge margin and continues to be the first choice for many organizations. Networking has been an area of focus for all the leading cloud service providers. AWS has a suite of network-related products which help in performing network related task on AWS.
With this practical course, you will get started with the basics of AWS networking where you will learn how to configure a VPC and create subnets for different use cases. Then you will be learning to integrate network–to-storage systems with AWS Networking. Moving further you will understand how to create your own virtual private cloud & build fine-grained network access controls, Integrate the VPC with On-Premise Networks.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, AWS Networking Solutions includes a series of tutorials to help users become fluent in a variety of networking aspects for Amazon Web Services' public cloud offering. The content is geared towards practical exercises that demonstrate important concepts. Each tutorial builds on the previous one, the result is a connected, secure multi-VPC configuration. You will learn how to configure a VPC and create subnets for different use cases. This course introduces the basics of AWS networking; our main goal is to reach intermediate users who are looking for better AWS networking examples. The course supplies multiple Microsoft Windows examples because most AWS literature is Linux-focused.
The second course, Networking and Security Best Practices on AWS will show you how to get started with the fundamental technologies required to secure your applications from the beginning of the architecture/development process: Identity Access Management (IAM) and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs). Combined, these two technologies give you the essential capability you will need to create a secure and isolated virtual datacenter in the cloud, complete with fine-grained user access controls and activity monitoring.
