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 Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a foundational service from AWS that enables network isolation of cloud resources in a cost-effective and scalable manner.

VPC peering enables connectivity between VPCs without traffic traversing the public internet. It can both improve the security posture and reduce the cost of solutions deployed in the public AWS cloud.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to configure a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and 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 way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
