Networking in Amazon Web Services AWS LiveLessons

Video description

4+ Hours of Video Instruction
With more than 4 hours of video instruction, demonstrations of Amazon Web Services and third-party cloud solutions provide a clear guide to understanding networking with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud.
Networking in Amazon Web Services (AWS) LiveLessons reviews key concepts related to networking, how those concepts apply to Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, and how networking enables high availability, fault tolerance, performance, and security. AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional and AWS Authorized Instructor Richard A. Jones covers concepts and methods necessary to design and build secure networks within Amazon Web Services (AWS).
For applications running on EC2, the architecture begins with the network; in AWS, that is the Virtual Private Cloud or VPC. In order to gain the highest degree of security, resiliency, and performance, you need to design the network accordingly. In this series of videos from Richard A. Jones, you learn how network design can help leverage multiple availability zones and how the application of routing, network access control lists, and security groups contribute to security. You also see how to extend on-premises networks into AWS with VPN and Direct Connect, review how to achieve the best performance, and much more.
Gaining an in-depth understanding of the concepts unique to cloud computing is essential for being a valuable asset to any business leveraging AWS for their computing and storage needs.

Lesson Descriptions
Lesson 1, Networking Review, reviews fundamental knowledge needed throughout the use of AWS VPC, IPv4, and IPv6 addresses as well as classless-interdomain routing, and C.I.D.R notation as a way of specifying ranges of IP addresses.
Lesson 2, Amazon VPC Part 1: Basics, discusses Amazon Virtual Private Cloud and how subnets enable the use of multiple availability zones as well as routing, internet access, and how public IP addresses can be allocated and assigned to EC2 instances.
Lesson 3, Amazon VPC Part 2: Advanced Concepts, demonstrates how to keep EC2 instances private and protected from the internet while still allowing egress only, or one-way internet access. Review network address translation, third-party virtual network appliances, and VPC endpoints.
Lesson 4, Network Security, discusses network security and demonstrates the use of network access control lists and security groups. Amazon VPC provides all the tools needed to create a secure network, but responsibility is needed to use those tools appropriately.
Lesson 5, Connecting VPCs and On-Premises Networks, reviews VPC peering, various VPN solutions, and AWS Direct Connect. While isolated networks like Amazon VPC provide powerful means of controlling network traffic and protecting instances, there are plenty of use cases where resources in VPCs need access to resources in other VPCs or on- premises.
Lesson 6, Performance and Other Notes, reviews how to achieve the best network performance with Amazon VPC with the knowledge of other features and options. With a rich collection of enablement and security tools, it is capable of high performance.
