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 Relational Database Service (RDS) is a managed offering from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that makes creating and operating relational databases straightforward and simple.

Creating, configuring, securing, and backing up an Amazon RDS database instance is a common set of tasks that people aiming to get AWS certified should be able to accomplish.

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.
