This foundational AWS EC2 prepares cloud administrators to obtain and configure cloud compute capacity through Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and scale your compute capacity to your needs.
If your company, your team, or your organization brushes up against the IT world in any way, you need to plan for overhead. You need to keep the lights on, maintain a network, and run servers. But now, thanks to EC2, you can offload all the computing needs to the cloud and only pay for what you need, when you need it.
But Amazon Web Service's Elastic Compute Cloud (AWS EC2) can't do you and your organization any good if people don't know how it can save you money and how it can accelerate your development. So whether you're a part of a development team and trying to anticipate whether you have the capacity for unexpected spikes in load, or you're part of a team that doesn't touch development directly, getting AWS EC2 training can help your entire organization work more effectively and more efficiently.
After finishing this AWS training, you'll know how to obtain and configure cloud compute capacity through Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and scale capacity to your needs.
For anyone with cloud administrators on their team, this AWS training can be used to onboard new cloud administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a AWS reference resource.
AWS EC2: What You Need to Know
For any cloud administrator looking to improve their proficiency with AWS cloud computing, this AWS course covers topics such as:
- Navigating Amazon Web Services account details
- Obtaining and booting new server instances
- Monitoring computing requirements and scaling new capacity accordingly
- Budgeting time and finances for desired compute capacity
Who Should Take AWS EC2 Training?
This AWS EC2 training is considered foundational-level AWS training, which means it was designed for cloud administrators with 1 to 3 years of experience — or no experience at all. This AWS EC2 course is valuable for new or aspiring IT professionals, experienced cloud administrators looking to validate foundational skills, and non-technical professionals.
AWS cloud computing user training. The idea behind elastic cloud computing resources is simple enough: Amazon rents virtual computers that a company can run their own applications on — and you only pay for what you use. This training will help you understand what sort of applications it can support, how it can save your organization money, and how it can be a much better solution to supporting your team's applications than just buying a whole bunch of servers and PCs and hoping for the best.
New or aspiring IT professionals. If you're a new cloud administrator, this AWS EC2 training is fundamental knowledge for the rest of your career. EC2 is only a part of Amazon's cloud-computing platform, but it's crucial for accessing secure, resizable compute capacity at-need. This training will show you how to spin up and configure capacity through the simple web interface and with APIs, plus much of what you'll learn will carry over to other Amazon services and other aspects of cloud administration, making you a more useful and capable administrator.
