What is AWS?

June 20, 2017 at 8:18 pm


I am taking careful notes on the incredible AWS course at CBT Nuggets for AWS Technical Essentials. Enjoy the notes for this first Nugget in the course – What is AWS?

  • “The Cloud” – specifically the public cloud
  • CBT Nuggets, GMAIL, DropBox are all valid examples of common cloud usage today
  • Access everywhere
  • SaaS (Software as a Service)
  • Pool of resources; multi-tenant; rapid provisioning; on-demand (as-a-service); like a utility bill; scalability; elasticity
  • Cost effective; easy to “on-ramp”
  • Hybrid – part of your usage is in the public cloud while part of it is in your private cloud
  • 1995 –; 2006 – AWS; 2009 – RDS; 2011 – Elastic Beanstalk; 2016 – Lambda
  • Regulations compliance is also available in AWS

The Quiz Questions – Be sure to post your answers in the comments below:

  • Rapid provisioning allows you to very quickly spin up a new virtual machine with minimal effort. True or false?
  • As Ben describes it, a hybrid setup is one in which part of your resources are in AWS, and the rest are with another cloud provider. True or false?
  • In what year did Amazon release Amazon Web Services?
    • a) 1995
    • b) 2006
    • c) 2016
    • d) 2008
