Learning Path Steps


This course gives you an overview of the AWS Virtual Private Cloud and its associated networking components.


Knowledge Check: Working with AWS Networking and Amazon VPC


Learn how to create an isolated network using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)


This course looks at how to design your AWS Virtual Private Cloud through the use of different VPC Subnet and Routing configurations.


Learn how to increment the network security creating a public and private subnet on VPC and filter traffic using network ACL


In this course, you'll be introduced to the IPsec security protocol and understand what it is and why and where it is useful.


Set Up VPN Connections with an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud using dynamic routing (BGP), and manage traffic using multi-homed routers


This brief course provides an overview of the VPC Reachability Analyzer, a service that allows you to easily test the connectivity between two points of your architecture.


In this lab challenge, you will be assessing your practical ability to design for high availability and identify single points of failure in a production-like AWS environment.


Set up VPC peering between Amazon Virtual Private Clouds, leverage Amazon Route 53 private hosted zones, and diagnose network issues with VPC flow logs in this Lab


Put your foundational cloud networking skills to the test in this hands-on challenge lab as you implement an Amazon VPC.


This course explores some of the different networking features and components across your AWS infrastructure.


Domain One of The AWS Solution Architect Associate exam guide requires us to be able to Design a multi-tier architecture solution so that is our topic for this course.


In this brief course, our AWS expert, Stuart Scott, answers the question: What's the difference between high availability and fault tolerance?


In this course, you'll learn how you can solve some of the common issues that can occur when running cloud networking at scale.


This course introduces you to two services that are used to manage DNS and content delivery within AWS: Amazon Route 53 and Amazon CloudFront.


Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery web service. It integrates with other Amazon Web Services products to give developers and businesses an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no minimum usage com...


You can easily and inexpensively use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host a website that uses client-side technologies (such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and does not require server-side technologies (such as PHP and ASP.NET). This type of site is called a st...


In this course, you'll learn how to create and deploy REST APIs via API Gateway to expose HTTP endpoints, AWS Lambda functions, and other AWS services.


This course walks you through how to create an API using the AWS API Gateway service.


In this course, you'll learn how to create a multi-tier serverless architecture on AWS using Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions and Amazon Polly text to speech.


Learn how to implement a Custom Authorizer with AWS Lambda to define ad-hoc authorization logics for your API Gateway resources.


This course performs an in-depth review of the IPv4 protocol including general IPv4 networking concepts and detailed explanations of its key parts.


In this course, you'll gain an understanding of both OSI and TCP/IP networking models, architecting, and operating large scale networks.


In this course, you'll be introduced to Jumbo Frames, the effect Jumbo Frames have when configured, and their use cases.
