Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting IaaS Products.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this class, you really should have a working knowledge of basic cloud computing concepts, things like the difference between infrastructure as a service, or IAAS, versus things like platform as a service, or PAAS and SAAS. This will help you really grasp what we're talking about and how this stuff applies. In addition, ideallly, you've already logged into AWS, and perhaps even have some familiarity with the AWS Console. Additionally, things like basic server networking knowledge, understanding how IP addressing works, or at least what it means.
We'll cover some of those basics here in the class, but it'll be helpful to know perhaps a little bit before you start. Additionally, server virtualization is one of the core concepts within cloud computing, and to understand just essentially what a virtual server is and how it applies would also help you, in addition to things like server storage, the different between block storage and file storage, and really understanding how things can be stored, whether they're in the cloud, or even just on the local server.
If you want to follow along at home, you should have, really, an AWS account. One of the free tier accounts is definitely acceptable. In fact, for the most part, you can use the free tier accounts throughout this course. Do be aware that some things will charge additional money, so make sure that you check the account and turn off things like, when we get into the storage area, when we talk about provisioned I/Os. Additionally, it should be possible for you to log into the AWS console. That's really going to be an HTTPS connection.
Next, optionally, you could be able to log in by SSH to one of the remote servers. For example, if you provisioned a Linux server, it might be handy for you to be able to log into it. If you use Windows, RDP will be a suitable substitute.
