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 VPC supports creating and using horizontally scalable and highly available network devices called endpoints. Using VPC endpoints and VPC endpoint services, you can send network traffic across VPCs and AWS accounts in a way that is secure and can save you money on bandwidth costs.

By learning how to create Amazon VPC endpoints, you increase the range of sophisticated networking solutions you can deploy in the public AWS cloud.

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.
