What is AWS?
In very simple words, Amazon Web Services is a subsidiary of Amazon that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and governments, on a paid subscription basis. The technology allows subscribers to have at their disposal a virtual cluster of computers, available all the time, through the Internet.
Let us give a shot at a very technical description of AWS. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering computing power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Explore how millions of customers are currently leveraging AWS cloud products and solutions to build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability.
- Websites & Website Hosting: Amazon Web Services offers cloud web hosting solutions that provide businesses, non-profits, and governmental organizations with low-cost ways to deliver their websites and web applications. Whether you’re looking for marketing, rich media, or e-commerce website, AWS offers a wide range of website hosting options, and we’ll help you select the one that is right for you.
- Backup & Recovery: AWS offers the most storage services, data-transfer methods, and networking options to build solutions that protect your data with unmatched durability and security
- Data Archive: Amazon Web Services offers a complete set of cloud storage services for archiving. You can choose Amazon Glacier for affordable, non-time sensitive cloud storage, or Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for faster storage, depending on your needs. With AWS Storage Gateway and our solution provider ecosystem, you can build a comprehensive, storage solution.
- DevOps: AWS provides a set of flexible services designed to enable companies to more rapidly and reliably build and deliver products using AWS and DevOps practices. These services simplify provisioning and managing infrastructure, deploying application code, automating software release processes, and monitoring your application and infrastructure performance.
- Big Data: AWS delivers an integrated suite of services that provide everything needed to quickly and easily build and manage a data lake for analytics. AWS-powered data lakes can handle the scale, agility, and flexibility required to combine different types of data and analytics approaches to gain deeper insights, in ways that traditional data silos and data warehouses cannot. AWS gives customers the widest array of analytics and machine learning services, for easy access to all relevant data, without compromising on security or governance.
Why learn AWS?
You don’t want your data scientists spending time on DevOps tasks like creating AMIs, defining Security Groups, and creating EC2 instances. Data science workloads benefit from large machines for exploratory analysis in tools like Jupyter or RStudio, as well as elastic scalability to support bursty demand from teams, or parallel execution of data science experiments, which are often computationally intensive.
Cost controls, resource monitoring, and reporting
Data science workloads often benefit from high-end hardware, which can be expensive. When data scientists have more access to scalable compute, how do you mitigate the risk of runaway costs, enforce limits, and attribute across multiple groups or teams?
Data scientists need agility to experiment with new open source tools and packages, which are evolving faster than ever before. System administrators must ensure stability and safety of environments. How can you balance these two points in tension?
Neural networks and other effective data science techniques benefit from GPU acceleration, but configuring and utilizing GPUs remains easier said than done. How can you provide efficient access to GPUs for your data scientists without miring them in DevOps configuration tasks?
AWS offers world-class security in their environment — but you must still make choices about how you configure security for your applications running on AWS. These choices can make a significant difference in mitigating risk as your data scientists transfer logic (source code) and data sets that may represent your most valuable intellectual property.
Our AWS Course
1. AWS Introduction
This section covers the basic and different concepts and terms which are AWS specific. This lays out the basic setting where learners are fed with all the AWS specific terms and are prepared for the deep dive.
2. VPC Subnet
A virtual private cloud (VPC) is a virtual network dedicated to your AWS account. It is logically isolated from other virtual networks in the AWS Cloud. You can launch your AWS resources, such as Amazon EC2 instances, into your VPC.
A route table contains a set of rules, called routes, that are used to determine where network traffic is directed. Each subnet in your VPC must be associated with a route table; the table controls the routing for the subnet. A subnet can only be associated with one route table at a time, but you can associate multiple subnets with the same route table.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that helps you securely control access to AWS resources. You use IAM to control who is authenticated (signed in) and authorized (has permissions) to use resources.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service that offers industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. This means customers of all sizes and industries can use it to store and protect any amount of data for a range of use cases, such as websites, mobile applications, backup and restore, archive, enterprise applications, IoT devices, and big data analytics.
AWS Lambda is a ‘compute’ service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. AWS Lambda executes your code only when needed and scales automatically, from a few requests per day to thousands per second
Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) is a highly available, durable, secure, fully managed pub/sub messaging service that enables you to decouple microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SNS provides topics for high-throughput, push-based, many-to-many messaging.
Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message-oriented middleware and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching and backups.
11. Dynamo DB
Amazon DynamoDB is a key-value and document database that delivers single-digit millisecond performance at any scale. It’s a fully managed, multi-region, multi-master database with built-in security, backup and restores, and in-memory caching for internet-scale applications. DynamoDB can handle more than 10 trillion requests per day and support peaks of more than 20 million requests per second.
13. Cloud Formation
AWS CloudFormation provides a common language for you to describe and provision all the infrastructure resources in your cloud environment. CloudFormation allows you to use a simple text file to model and provision, in an automated and secure manner, all the resources needed for your applications across all regions and accounts. This file serves as the single source of truth for your cloud environment.
