  • summarize the key concepts covered in this course

Overview/Description

In this course, learners can refresh their knowledge of core Amazon Web Service (AWS) concepts in preparation for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Professional SAP-C01 certification exam. Topics include app decoupling, AWS organizations, Lambda functions, cost management, virtual private clouds (VPC), CloudFormation, and integrated access management (IAM). Begin by examining how to configure an auto scaling group, followed by enabling import of an existing virtual hard disk (VHD) file. In one scenario, explore how to manage multiple AWS accounts using AWS organizations. In another, a custom cloud-hosted function is needed that will modify HTTP response headers in a CloudFront content delivery network, so a Lambda function will be created. You will look at ways to reduce unnecessary AWS costs, how to centralize network connectivity using VPC transit gateways, and how to create a custom IAM role. Explore how to enable Glacier archiving for infrequently accessed data by using S3 lifecycle management. Then enable EC2 instance auto recovery. Finally, deploy a cloud-based network directory service and an Amazon workspace.

  • summarize the key concepts covered in this course

Overview/Description

This course explores the public cloud storage provided by AWS (Amazon Web Services), called S3 buckets, to store data and its descriptive metadata. Begin by learning how to use S3 buckets, an access control list (ACL), to determine which entities have access to contents within the S3 bucket. Learners can then explore S3 security options, including bucket encryption, access policies, and object locking and how to enable versioning static website hosting. This course also covers the benefits of both Microsoft's EFS (Encrypting File System) and MS BizTalk ESB toolkit. You will explore the S3 CORS (cross-origin resource sharing) support, storage class analysis, and object locking. You will create an S3 bucket encryption by using the GUI (graphical user interface). Next, you will learn how to use CLI (command-line interface) and PowerShell for bucket encryption. This course can be used in preparation for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Professional SAP-C01 certification exam.

Overview/Description

This course covers AWS (Amazon Web Services) S3 object cloud storage service. It is important to know how to block objects from being deleted or modified, and this course teaches learners how to use the security options available. The course demonstrates bucket encryption, access policies, and locking. You will learn how to create a permissions policy to allow resources to access an S3 bucket, how to modify bucket permissions using the bucket ACL (access control list), and how to block public access to an S3 bucket. You will explore how to determine when to use CORS (cross-origin resource sharing) to gain access to sources from a different origin. You will learn the difference between governance or compliance mode, which is dependent on your legal or regulatory requirements, and how to enable these modes. Finally, the course covers S3 storage class analysis, S3 object locking, and how to enable S3 encryption by using the GUI, CLI, and PowerShell. This course can be used in preparation for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Professional SAP-C01 certification exam.
