Are you looking forward to develop or architect applications for AWS? Or do you want to learn how to design and architect cloud solutions? If yes, then go for this Learning Path. Packt's Video Learning Path is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery, and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Explore how millions of customers are currently leveraging AWS cloud products and solutions to build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability, and reliability. AWS can be summarized as: A Broad IT Infrastructure Platform This Learning Path begins with an introduction to AWS. You will learn about Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) that offers you nearly infinite flexible compute power in the cloud. You will see how to compute options provided by EC2 such as database optimized instances, GPU instances, and Simple Storage Service (S3) which enables you to store nearly unlimited number of files in a low-cost object store. Next, you will be introduced to Amazon's Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) which provides you with a fully managed application load balancing service to manage your traffic. Then, you will learn to write, run, and automatically perform load-balancing of a Node. js based web API that uses all of these fully managed services to build a fully functional, fault-tolerant, and next-generation web scale application. Moving ahead, you will explore different textual search engines and learn how to run code instead of instances. Finally, you will learn about AWS Lambda and understand its functions and how to deploy them effectively. By the end of this Learning Path, you will have a strong understanding of cloud computing with AWS and will be able to build and deploy applications in the cloud.
