The goal of this AWS Academy Cloud Foundations course was to gain understanding in cloud concepts, AWS core services, security, architecture, pricing, and support.
The result was earning a certificate and badge for completing 10 modules of the course.
I learned how to create an EC2 Instance, an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) that spans in two Availability Zones with a “Public” and “Private” network segment in each, and an AMI which I then cloned. I gained experience in working with Elastic Block Store (EBS) and utilizing services provided by Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS). I was also able to generate and leverage load balancers, launch configurations, and auto scaling groups. We also learned how to design a client/server program using a RESTFUL API to pass parameters and store data in an RDS Instance.
