One of the better AWS docs pages on VPC's is here.
What we'll cover
We review what the Onboarding AWS course will cover.
We touch on the "need to know" parts AWS private networks (the VPC service).
Creating an EC2 Instance
We create an EC2 server, covering the various options to help reduce the anxiety of having so many customizations available.
Elastic IP Addresses
We see how to allocate and assign a static IP address (Elastic IP Address - EIP) to an EC2 instance.
Monitoring EC2 Instances
We cover the important CloudWatch metrics to keep an eye on related to our EC2 server.
Creating a Server Image
We provision our EC2 instance, and then see how to create an AMI (Amazon Machine Image) from which we can re-create new, pre-configured EC2 instances.
Creating an RDS Database Instance
We create a managed MySQL database using RDS, including what to know about networking and security groups.
Managing RDS Databases
We see how to manage an RDS database, including how backup/restoration works, and covering what metrics to monitor.
Redis with ElastiCache
We create a Redis instance with a replica node, and discuss Multi-AZ, bandwidth charges, and monitoring.
