Lab description

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) allows you to create, manage, and attach Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes. EBS volumes offer different types at different costs and levels of performance. They can be attached and detached from running instances.

Candidates for AWS certification should be comfortable working with EBS volumes to achieve specific outcomes.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to work with EBS resources in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
