Want to make your AWS deployment infrastructure robust and easy to maintain? This path will help you master critical cloud-era DevOps skills.

In this course, you will learn about the AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and its associated networking components, with a view to architecting and building your own VPC. Then you'll look at how to set up a static website on the Cloud using only Amazon S3 to store the files, Amazon CloudFront for content delivery, Route 53 to associate a custom domain name to our website, and Amazon Glacier to set up an automatic backup strategy of the website's files on S3.

After that, we'll go into more depth on Amazon CloudFront, which provides an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no minimum usage commitments.

Finally, we look at Route 53, Amazon's domain name system, and cover topics such as domain name management, DNS active-passive failover, DNS latency-based routing, private hosted zones, and health checks.
