Get an example-driven introduction to Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cloud computing platform that enables you deploy highly scalable, secure, and reliable solutions—without the need for expensive hardware or dozens of engineers. Youll learn the profoundly powerful concepts that underlie cloud computing, and then explore the core AWS offerings and their key attributes. Real-world examples demonstrate how these concepts are put into practice.
The book presents several hands-on projects that demonstrate the progressive evolution of an AWS-hosted system as requirements for scalability, security, reliability, and cost are accounted for.
