Lab description

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) combined with AWS Auto Scaling and Elastic Load Balancing enables you to create solutions that not only scale up to meet demand but also to optimize your resources to achieve the lowest possible cost.

Engineers who are looking to get AWS certified should be comfortable creating and configuring solutions using these AWS services.

In this lab challenge, you will be tested on your practical ability to build out a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You are presented with a task and a set of requirements that you must fulfill to pass the challenge. This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied situation, leaving behind multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
