Individuals who perform a Solutions Architect role using the Amazon AWS cloud

Prerequisite
None

Expected Duration
102 minutes

Description
Auto scaling on the Elastic Compute Cloud platform enables your cloud based applications to respond to changes in load by scaling up or down, preventing under-provisioning in busy times and over-provisioning in quiet times. This course covers configuring scalable EC2 clouds using Auto Scaling groups, including a primer in the AWS command line interface, scripts to run at boot time, and in-depth configuration of auto-scaling and placement groups. This course is one of a series that cover the objectives for Amazon certification exam AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate.
