Book Description

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides flexible and resizable compute capacity in the cloud. The main purpose of Amazon EC2 is to make web-scale cloud computing easier for the developers. It offers developers and companies the raw building blocks like load balancers, object stores and virtual machines running on general hardware (that is, Amazon runs a multitude of hardware components but presents them as a generic utility to its users) with accessible APIs in order to create scalable software products

This book covers designing, developing, and deploying scalable, highly available, and secure applications on the AWS platform. By following the steps in the recipes, you will be able to effectively and systematically resolve issues related to development, deployment, and infrastructure for enterprise-grade cloud applications or products.

This book starts with helping you choose and configure the right EC2 instances to meet your application-specific requirements. The book then moves on to creating a CloudFormation template and will teach you how to work with stacks. You will then be introduced to using IAM services to configure users, groups, roles, and multi-factor authentication. You will also learn how to connect AD to AWS IAM. Next, you will be using AWS data services and accessing other AWS services including Route 53, Amazon S3, and AWS SES (Amazon Simple Email Service). Finally, you will be deploying AWS applications using Docker containers.
