Course Description

Cloud computing has revolutionized the way we do business, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the leading cloud computing platforms available. The "Cloud Computing Basics with AWS" course is designed to provide an introduction to cloud computing and AWS, covering the fundamental concepts, services, and tools you need to know to get started. The course begins with an overview of cloud computing, including its benefits, models, and deployment options. You will learn about Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS), and how they differ. You will also learn about the AWS Global Infrastructure and the regions, availability zones, and edge locations that make up the AWS cloud. The course then dives into the AWS services and tools that are essential for cloud computing, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). You will learn how to launch an EC2 instance, create an S3 bucket, configure an RDS database, and create a VPC.

Finally, the course covers best practices for cloud computing with AWS, including cost optimization, performance optimization, and scalability. You will learn how to monitor your AWS resources, use AWS Trusted Advisor to optimize your costs, and use AWS Auto Scaling to automatically adjust your resources based on demand. By the end of the "Cloud Computing Basics with AWS" course, you will have a solid understanding of cloud computing and AWS, and you will be able to launch and manage basic AWS resources. This course is ideal for beginners who are new to cloud computing and want to learn about AWS, as well as for IT professionals who are considering a move to the cloud and want to get a taste of AWS before diving deeper.
