Lab description

AWS is currently the leading cloud services provider, offering more than one hundred services tailored toward computing, storage, networking, artificial intelligence, and many more categories. Thousands of companies use AWS to host their cloud needs, and many of those companies use AWS's certification suite to ensure their staff is up to par when it comes to working with AWS resources. This lab challenge will help confirm your knowledge of the material presented in the AWS Solutions Architect - Associate certification learning path.

In this lab challenge, you will be provided with a real AWS environment. This environment will emulate a real-world scenario, where you will be asked to perform the kind of tasks commonly done by those with the AWS Solutions Architect - Associate certification. This lab challenge will avoid multiple-choice answers in favor of real-world work in a cloud environment. Additionally, while this lab challenge will not cover every aspect of the certification requirements, completion of the challenge will go a long way toward showing you have a comprehensive grasp of architecting within AWS.
