Using AWS to create a scalable, available and secure environment



Workshop: How to take your web application and create a scalable, highly available and secure environment for it on AWS.

With AWS as the leading public cloud provider today you can run all your applications easily and securely.

By the end of the workshop you will learn the foundation AWS services like EC2, VPC, ELB, Auto Scaling Groups, to more advanced managed services by AWS like RDS, Elasticache, AWS ES and more.

In this workshop we will take a simple web application and we will create a scalable, highly available and secure environment for it.

We will show how to manage deployments, rollbacks and how to manage backups of the application data.

The design will look like this:

 AWS Workshop

This workshop contains the following activities:

  Working with the AWS UI – creating instances, load balancers, managing security groups and more.

  Working with the AWS CLI – using the CLI you have access to all AWS services and metadata you’ll ever need, you can create, edit, delete and manage all AWS resources.

  Common challenges surrounding high availability, scaling and security.

By the end of the day you will understand and know how to use AWS core services, we will use services that help us manage our applications easily and simplifies deployments.

This seminar is intended for beginners / intermediate delegates who aim to require knowledge and experience with AWS services.

  Microservices – Microservices today has to be highly available, scalable, must have an easy deploy mechanism with little configuration and fast deployment.
