Database Fundamentals for AWS
Relational Database Service
NoSQL databases (DynamoDB) and Amazon Aurora
AWS 180, from Cloud Academy's comprehensive Amazon Web Services learning tracks series, provides an introductory tour of Amazon's database solutions. You'll learn about managed database solutions and about the basic structure and function of Amazon's SQL-based RDS database - whether using the MySQL or AWS's new Aurora database engine. You'll get a walkthrough of an actual configuration and launch of a highly available MySQL RDS instance. And finally, you'll learn about NoSQL database formats, focusing on Amazon's DynamoDB.
AWS180 is part of the 100 level course series (the AWS Technical Foundation Track) which, in turn, lays the groundwork for our 200 series (intermediate level skills) and 300 series (advanced skills).
