Transcript

Hello, and welcome to this course where I shall cover the fundamentals of the Elastic Cloud Compute service, commonly known as EC2.

AWS Compute is a large element of the AWS infrastructure, and it's likely to be one of the first service types that you will use, or are already using. There are a number of foundation services that AWS is built upon, Compute being one of them, in addition to Storage, Database, and Network. This course will focus on a single Compute service, EC2 and I will cover all elements from the ground up, ensuring you have a full understanding of each feature discussed. 

My name is Stuart Scott, I am one of the trainers here at Cloud Academy, specializing in AWS. Feel free to contact me with any questions using the details shared on the screen. Alternatively, you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com, where one of our cloud experts will reply to your question. 

This course has been designed for anyone looking to learn about the EC2 service and its configurable options. This would also be advantageous to those looking to take any of the Associate level AWS certifications. 

During this course, I will also provide a demonstration on how to create an EC2 instance to give you familiarity to the EC2 console and the different options available. Once you have completed this course, you will understand what is meant by Compute, and you will have a full understanding of EC2 and be familiar with its configuration

Feedback on our courses here at Cloud Academy are valuable to both us as trainers and any students that need to take the same course in the future. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send an email to support@cloudacademy.com

That brings us to the end of this lecture. Coming up next, we are going to answer the question of what is Compute in AWS?
