Choosing between the low latency connection to your data and the durability of the cloud can be difficult, but AWS Storage Gateway provides the best of both worlds by providing a hybrid-cloud implementation for your data center. In this course, Provisioning and Managing AWS Storage Gateway, you will learn how to configure the three different types of storage gateways: file, volume, and tape. First, we will cover the provisioning and management of each gateway type. Next, you will discover how to connect to each gateway type from different clients. Finally, you will explore the metrics provided by AWS to enable you to administer a storage gateway instance for your organization. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to implement and configure an AWS Storage Gateway instance for your data center.
Course Overview Hello everyone, my name is David Tucker, and welcome to the course, Provisioning and Managing AWS Storage Gateway. I'm a cloud consultant, and I help organizations plan, build, and implement custom software on AWS. I have over 10 years of experience using AWS, and I currently hold four different AWS certifications. This course is designed to give you the information that you need to provision your own AWS Storage Gateway instance. Before you take this course, it is helpful for you to understand the core AWS storage services including Amazon S3 and Amazon EBS. In this course, I will provide an overview of the core problem when it comes to integrating your local data into the cloud, and I will illustrate how the hybrid cloud approach of AWS Storage Gateway can solve those challenges for your organization. Next, I will review the three different types of gateways that can be configured. After that, I will analyze how to provision a new gateway and configure it for use. Finally, I will review approaches for administering a Storage Gateway instance, including setting alarms and monitoring metrics. I believe that the solutions provided in this course can help you seamlessly integrate the load latency connection to your data center with the durability and reliability of the cloud with AWS.
