Overview of this book

Amazon Web Services (AWS) dominates the public cloud market by a huge margin and continues to be the first choice for many organizations. Networking has been an area of focus for all the leading cloud service providers. AWS has a suite of network-related products which help in performing network related task on AWS. This book initially covers the basics of networking in AWS. Then we use AWS VPC to create an isolated virtual cloud for performing network-related tasks. We then provide an overview of AWS Direct Connect after taking a deep dive into scalability and load balancing using the auto scaling feature, Elastic Load Balancing, and Amazon Route S3. Toward the end of the book, we cover troubleshooting tips and security best practices for your network. By the end of this book, you will have hands-on experience of working with network tasks on AWS.

Well done! We are at the end of this chapter, so let's summarize what we have covered.

We created two instances in two different Availability Zones in the default VPC. We installed Tomcat by accessing instances with the use of PuTTY. Using WinSCP, we transferred a sample application in the Tomcat installation directory for deployment. Then, we created a load balancer and configured target groups.

Once ELB and the target groups were configured properly, we accessed our sample application using the ELB DNS name rather than using it with the public DNS name of instances.

In the next chapter, we will look at auto-scaling in detail.
