Introduction to AWS IaaS Solutions

Book Description

Learn how to design and deploy infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions in the cloud using Amazon Web Services. With this ebook, system administrators and architects will explore core AWS IaaS solutions for computing, database storage, networking, and other functionality. Eric Wright, technology evangelist at Turbonomic, provides practical examples, design patterns, and tips to help you confidently build a working IaaS solution.

Once you finish this ebook, you’ll be familiar with AWS core components, understand how AWS concepts map against traditional virtualization, and know how to design your AWS solution for resiliency. You’ll also be able to launch and manage your cloud solution using either the AWS command-line interface or the AWS web console.

  • Learn basic networking and security on the AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) platform for launching your compute and storage resources
  • Add compute resources to your newly launched VPC by setting up operational tasks with AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
  • Explore the types of storage available on AWS Elastic Block Storage (EBS), including their cost, performance impact, and examples of operational tasks
