About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is AWS's industry leading storage option well-known for its scalability, availability, and security.

Amazon S3 is often used as the basis of a data analytics platform. Learning how to securely set up and configure an Amazon S3 bucket for this use-case will benefit anyone aiming to certify with AWS and use data analytics solutions with it.
