Overview/Description
Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2 is the virtual machine engine for Amazon Web Services. EC2 enables you to run instances of Linux or Windows VMs and spin them up or down with a few clicks. Elastic Block Store provides the raw block level storage for EC2 instances, or for IOPS intensive workloads, such and databases. This course covers an overview of EC2 including the marketplace, and common tasks, such as spinning VMs up or down. It goes on to cover EBS and the roles it can fulfil, and how to monitor an EC2 cloud using CloudWatch. This course is one of a series that cover the objectives for Amazon certification exam AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate.

Target Audience
Individuals who perform a Solutions Architect role using the Amazon AWS cloud.
