Description

In this section of the Cloud Practitioner learning path, we introduce you to the various Compute services currently available in AWS that are relevant to the CLF-C01 exam.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the various Compute services available in AWS
  • Define the different families within AWS Compute services
  • Identify the purpose of load balancers and Elastic Load Balancing
  • Understand how Auto Scaling can enable your Compute resources to scale elastically based on varying levels of demand

Prerequisites

This course is designed for anyone who is new to cloud computing, so no prior experience with AWS is necessary. While it may be helpful to have a basic understanding of AWS and its services, as well as some exposure to AWS Cloud design, implementation, and operations, this is not required as all of the concepts we will introduce in this course will be explained and reinforced from the ground up.

Transcript

Hello, and welcome to this course on Compute in AWS, where we’re here to help you on your journey to prepare for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification.

Before we get started, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Danny Jessee, and I am one of the trainers here at Cloud Academy, specializing in AWS – Amazon Web Services – and AWS certifications. In this course, the AWS team will be presenting a series of lectures that introduce the various compute services currently available in AWS that may be covered on the exam. Feel free to contact me with any questions using the details shown on the screen, or 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 specifically curated to help you pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam and is ideal for anyone who is looking to learn more about the various Compute services in AWS in preparation for the exam. Passing the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam is a great first step for anyone looking to grow within their current career, or transition to a new career entirely.

The objective of this course is to provide a high-level introduction to Compute services in AWS, including:

  • Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2;
  • The Elastic Container Service, also known as ECS;
  • The Elastic Container Registry, or ECR;
  • The Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes, known as EKS;
  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk;
  • AWS Lambda;
  • AWS Batch; and
  • Amazon Lightsail.

We’ll also introduce the concept of Elastic Load Balancing, along with the different types of load balancers you can provision within the AWS Cloud. And finally we’ll discuss EC2 Auto Scaling and see how it works together with Elastic Load Balancing to help you build robust, highly available web applications.

These objectives are covered by Domain 3 in the official AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam blueprint: Technology, which accounts for 33% of the exam content. The other courses in this learning path cover the remaining exam content and will ensure that you are fully prepared to sit this exam.

This course is designed for anyone who is new to cloud computing, so no prior experience with AWS is necessary. While it may be helpful to have a basic understanding of AWS and its services, as well as some exposure to AWS Cloud design, implementation, and operations, this is not required as all of the concepts we will introduce in this course will be explained and reinforced from the ground up.

 

Here at Cloud Academy, we strive to keep our content current to provide the best training available.
