Description

Do you need to design and implement elastic applications on the AWS cloud? In this course, Implementing AWS EC2 Auto Scaling, you will learn foundational skills required to deploy Auto Scaling groups on Amazon EC2. First, you will explore the concept of elasticity on AWS and gain an understanding of the differences between vertical and horizontal scaling. Next, you will discover how to build launch configurations and templates used by EC2 instances when scaling out horizontally. Finally, you will learn how to implement Auto Scaling groups that scale dynamically, on a schedule or predictively based on patterns and forecasts. By the end of this course, you will have the necessary knowledge to efficiently utilize Amazon EC2 to implement and deploy Auto Scaling groups successfully.

Course Overview
Hey everyone. This is Mike Pfeiffer, and welcome to Implementing Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling. In this course, we'll take a look at everything you need to know to implement elasticity for you applications using servers running in EC2. To get started, we'll talk about the features, benefits, and use cases for Auto Scaling in EC2. We'll step through the process of building launch configurations, setting up launch templates, and deploying Auto Scaling groups so you'll have a good understanding of these foundational components that support elasticity in Amazon EC2. Next, we'll dive deeper into the configuration options available in Auto Scaling groups, we'll explore how to scale out and scale back in dynamically using policies that you define, we'll take a look at how you can set up Auto Scaling based on a schedule, and we'll discuss predictive scaling, which uses machine learning models to implement Auto Scaling in EC2. So whether you're looking to implement horizontal scaling in Amazon EC2, or you're just learning more about Auto Scaling in EC2 for AWS certification, then this course is definitely for you.
