Lab description

AWS offers many different ways to store your data. They each have advantages and disadvantages and each one is best suited to a particular use case.

Being able to choose the best storage option to use when given a data pattern and a set of requirements is a skill anyone aiming to get AWS certified should be looking to gain.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to choose between cost, performance, and features of different storage options in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.
