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

Static website hosting on an Amazon S3 bucket has grown to become one of the prominent features of the service. Additional website requirements such as URL redirects and custom error document rendering can be met with optional configurations provided by Amazon S3.

This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following Amazon S3 features and concepts:

  • Static-site hosting
  • Static-site URL redirects
  • Conditional website redirects

If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, Cloud Academy recommends completing the courses and labs mentioned in the prerequisites before attempting this lab challenge.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to update two Amazon S3 buckets to satisfy a set of requirements 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.

  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)

Intended audience

  • Cloud Architects
  • Software Engineers
  • DevOps Engineers


  • Configuring a Static Website With S3 and CloudFront
  • Configuring Redirects for a Static Website Hosted on Amazon S3
