Bringing It All Together: An AWS Application
In This Chapter
Building a simple blogging site
Partitioning the site to enhance performance
Improving application robustness with geographical redundancy
This chapter presents a complete application that allows you to do some hands-on work with AWS. I present a step-by-step set of instructions for you to follow as you start from a simple EC2 application and incrementally increase its performance and robustness by taking advantage of additional AWS services to improve it. Along the way, I discuss the reasons for selecting these additional services and how they improve the application. If you follow along, by the time you finish working through the example, you’ll be ready to take on AWS singlehandedly!
