Learn how to configure and deploy a network using Amazon Web Services. Walk through how to set up and connect data centers and explore gateways, aliases, peer routing, and more.
- [Sharif] Hi, I'm Sharif Nijim and I'd like to welcome you to this course on networking in Amazon Web Services. Amazon Web Services or AWS is the global leader in cloud computing. We're in the midst of one of the biggest transformations in the history of IT. Now more than ever, it is an exciting time to work in IT. Small start-ups and massive companies are rapidly adopting cloud computing. That way, they can focus on their core business, instead of operating infrastructure. The world wide consolidation of data centers is happening now.
As a result, the demand for IT professionals with AWS skills is skyrocketing. One of the core concepts a full-stack cloud engineer needs these days is a strong grasp of networking. Being well-versed in networking will help you understand how your current infrastructure is setup, and how your applications work. Understanding the networking tools in AWS will prepare you to design and build your infrastructure of the future. This course is designed to give you an appreciation of the networking tools available within AWS.
We'll start off by exploring a tool AWS calls, Virtual Private Cloud. Virtual Private Cloud or VPC allows you to build the data center of your dreams, hosted in AWS. We'll look at how to connect any existing data centers you may have to AWS. We'll dive deeply in to the components that make up a VPC. We will explore effective strategies and tools for keeping the resources in you VPC secure. Finally, we will explore Route 53, the AWS tool for DNS and traffic flow management.
Let's get moving.
This course is also part of a series designed to help you prepare for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator – Associate certification exam.
