Note: This is a great informational course on AWS. However, Jeremy's newer AWS courses provide training for the AWS Certified Solution Architect certification.

In this Amazon Web Services: Essentials course, trainer Jeremy Cioara covers what AWS is, how it works, and how you (and your organization) can get started using it. Related Area of Expertise:
  • Amazon Web Services

Delve into the world of Amazon Web Services (AWS) with trainer Jeremy Cioara. If you're trying to establish a cloud presence, AWS offers a cost-effective, scalable infrastructure.

This course is full of cool technology, but the biggest “way-cool” factor is the complete shift in the way we think about and handle Information Technology! With AWS, you no longer have to build your own world-wide IT enterprise solution to deliver amazing cloud-based services.

Jeremy walks you through how to sign up for an AWS account, create and use instances, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Simple Storage Service (S3), and more. You'll also see a real-life case study on a company called CBT Nuggets that migrated its services to AWS.

Find out how easy it is to use AWS, and how to make the powerful features of AWS work for you.

Amazon Web Services: AWS Foundations - Getting the Most from this Series

00:00:00 - Hello, my name is Jeremy Cioara.
00:00:02 - I'd like to welcome you to the CBT Nuggets AWS Series.
00:00:05 - And because there's multiple AWS fundamental series here at
00:00:08 - CBT Nuggets, I wanted to give you a quick overview of
00:00:11 - exactly what this series is.
00:00:13 - See back in 2010, CBT Nuggets ran their customer facing
00:00:17 - website, which is likely what you're listening to me right
00:00:19 - now on, out of their own data center with their own servers,
00:00:23 - their own network equipment, you get the idea, right.
00:00:25 - The traditional structure.
00:00:27 - As with all traditional data center structure, hardware and
00:00:30 - support cost began climbing, and we started looking for
00:00:33 - other options.
00:00:34 - Thankfully, we found AWS.
00:00:37 - So between 2011 and 2012, CBT Nuggets pioneered a totally
00:00:41 - fresh design.
00:00:42 - They did a whole bunch of stuff along with moving the
00:00:45 - entire structure over to AWS.
00:00:48 - The implementation went so well that the owner of CBT
00:00:51 - Nuggets, his name's Dan, gave me a call.
00:00:53 - And he was like, Jeremy, we've got to create a training
00:00:56 - series on AWS.
00:00:57 - There's nothing out there and I'm telling you this is going
00:01:00 - to be an amazing technology.
00:01:02 - Everybody's going to be running for this technology to
00:01:06 - implement in their own organization.
00:01:08 - I would say with all of his excitement, he probably
00:01:10 - understated it.
00:01:11 - AWS has done amazingly well, but the task was daunting.
00:01:16 - Because we looked around for an AWS curriculum that we
00:01:19 - could kind of follow the outline from
00:01:21 - and there was none.
00:01:22 - There was no certification program, no exam objectives.
00:01:25 - Not even a really good book that we could follow to create
00:01:27 - a training series.
00:01:28 - So we decided to improvise.
00:01:30 - I sat down with the CBT Nuggets engineers for a week
00:01:33 - in meeting, after meeting, after meeting where they
00:01:35 - painstakingly described every single step that they took to
00:01:39 - move over to AWS.
00:01:41 - I took notes like mad.
00:01:43 - And then used those notes to build this AWS Series.
00:01:47 - The reception was fantastic.
00:01:48 - I was receiving emails, people were posting to
00:01:51 - our Facebook page.
00:01:52 - They were like, oh, finally there's an AWS training series
00:01:54 - that we can use.
00:01:55 - Thank you, thank you, thank you.
00:01:56 - And then, four months later AWS announces a
00:01:59 - certification program.
00:02:01 - Now, that announcement was bittersweet to me.
00:02:04 - I was excited to be able to create a training series using
00:02:06 - an exam outline of what AWS themselves would say is a core
00:02:11 - skill set needed for competency.
00:02:13 - But it was also really sad to see this original series that
00:02:16 - we created fade into the sunset.
00:02:18 - Once they had created the two additional AWS Series from
00:02:21 - this one, which lined up to the certification, it was
00:02:24 - fundamentals and architecture, CBT Nuggets hid this series
00:02:28 - that you're listening to right now to prevent any confusion.
00:02:31 - Then, we received one email.
00:02:33 - Then another, then another.
00:02:35 - People were asking, what happened to the
00:02:37 - original AWS Series?
00:02:38 - Apparently, a number of people in the world told their
00:02:41 - friends about this series and so we brought it back.
00:02:44 - So what should you expect from this?
00:02:46 - I would say a real practical approach to AWS.
00:02:50 - What you're about to go through is the technology that
00:02:53 - CBT Nuggets used and a little beyond, when they
00:02:56 - moved over to AWS.
00:02:57 - This training mirrors what many companies would implement
00:03:00 - for their own organization.
00:03:02 - So now you have the premise, you have the purpose of what
00:03:04 - this series is all about.
00:03:05 - I hope you enjoy it and I'd like to thank you for viewing.
