This lab introduces the concept of Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). In this lab you will use ELB to load balance a set of web servers in an Availability Zone. You will launch a pair of Amazon EC2 instances, bootstrap them to install web servers and content, and then access the instances independently using Amazon EC2 DNS records. Next, you will set up ELB, add your instances to the ELB, and then access the ELB DNS record to watch your requests load balance between servers. Finally, you will look at ELB metrics in CloudWatch. To successfully complete this lab, you should be familiar with the AWS Management Console.
The lab provides a basic understanding of Amazon Route 53. It will demonstrate the basic steps required to get started with Route 53, including creating, editing, and deleting simple DNS records within a Hosted Zone (HZ), and creating and testing simple health check and associated failover records. Prerequisites for this lab: basic understanding of IP networking, DNS addressing and host name resolution. Students should also have taken the following three labs at a minimum prior to taking this lab: 1) Introduction to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), 2) Introduction to Simple Storage Service (s3), and 3) Introduction to Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).For the lab to function as written, please DO NOT change the auto assigned region.
This lab leads you through the steps to launch and configure your first Microsoft SQL Server instance on Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS). You will scale database instances, access the Amazon RDS instance via Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, and configure Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). At the end of this lab, you will have created a database in Amazon RDS and performed administrative operations, such as migrating a large database to Amazon RDS and database backup (snapshot) and restore (recover) operations.
This lab shows you how to manage access and permissions to your AWS services using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). Practice the steps to add users to groups, manage passwords, log in with IAM-created users, and see the effects of IAM policies on access to specific services.
This lab takes you through the steps of creating a MySQL database using the Amazon Relational Database Service using the AWS Management Console, and then connecting to the database in AWS using the MySQL client running on an Amazon Linux instance, which the student also creates during the lab.
This lab takes you through the steps of creating a MySQL database using the Amazon Relational Database Service using the AWS Management Console, and then connecting to the database in AWS using a SQL client running on a Microsoft Windows server, also provided in the lab environment.

This lab will show you how to launch a Drupal Open Souce Content Management System (CMS) with Amazon Relational Database (Amazon RDS) for MySQL as the backend database with a multi-Availability Zone (AZ) deployment.
Learn how to deploy and administer databases running on Microsoft Windows Server in Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS.
In this Quest, you will learn how to write functions with the AWS Lambda Service that respond to events and integrate other AWS Services. You will create applications that write records to Amazon DynamoDB, send messages with Amazon SNS, and monitor events in Amazon CloudWatch and external services. You will even write a back-end function in Lambda for creating a voice-response app for Alexa and the Amazon Echo.
This lab provides a overview of building products in Service Catalog.
