AWS is one of the most popular public cloud providers. This course will teach you how to securely configure load balancing for any internet-facing or internal application, including configuring HTTPS, path-based routing, and idle timeouts.
Selecting and configuring the right load balancer type can be tough. In this course, AWS Networking Deep Dive: Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), you'll learn how to configure elastic load balancing for any application using the Application and Network Load Balancers. First, you'll discover how to securely load balance internet-facing and internal applications using the Application Load Balancer. Next, you'll explore how to load balance microservices using path-based routing. Finally, you'll delve into how and when to use the Network Load Balancer. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the necessary skills and knowledge to load balance any application.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Ben Piper, and welcome to my course, AWS Networking Deep Dive: Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). I'm an AWS Certified Solutions Architect and author. AWS is the world's most popular public cloud provider. As more organizations move their applications to the cloud, security, scalability, and resiliency become increasingly important. That's where Elastic Load Balancing comes in. In this course, you'll learn how to configure Elastic Load Balancing for any application, whether you're dealing with a single, monolithic application, or one that's been broken up into several microservices. You'll learn about the differences between the Classic, Application, and Network Load Balancers, and how to decide which one is right for you. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include load-balancing, internet-facing, and internal applications, securing your applications using HTTPS, path-based routing for containers and microservices, sticky sessions and idle timeouts, and implementing load balancing with IPv6. By the end of this course, you'll know how to implement Elastic Load Balancing with any application. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with creating VPCs and managing AWS instances. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Elastic Load Balancing with the AWS Networking Deep Dive: Elastic Load Balancing course, only here at Pluralsight.
