Transcript

Hello, and welcome to this course, which will provide a framework to help you evaluate appropriate database deployment solutions on AWS using either the Amazon Relational Database Service, or RDS, or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2 instances.

Before we get started, I would 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. 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 is for anyone who is responsible for defining and implementing relational database solution architectures in AWS, or anyone who is looking to migrate an existing application that uses a relational database backend to the AWS Cloud.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to choose between using Amazon RDS or EC2 instances for your relational database deployments. In many cases, using an AWS-managed RDS database will be the fastest, simplest, and most effective approach. However, depending on your specific requirements, there are scenarios where it makes more sense to install a database on Amazon EC2 instances instead.

To get the most out of this course, you should have a basic understanding of relational databases, Amazon RDS, and Amazon EC2. For more information about these services, I encourage you to check out these lectures:
