Well done! We are at the end of this chapter, so let's summarize what we've covered so far. In this chapter, we tried to give solutions to issues that can occur during day-to-day management of some AWS resources. It is a limited list and not exhaustive.

In this book, we covered the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). We looked at how to create VPCs using a wizard and without. We also covered how to deploy AWS Elastic Beanstalk instances in the custom VPC we created. This book also discusses auto-scaling and Elastic Load Balancing. Security best practices were covered in detail, and include IAM best practices; we also configured multi-factor authentication for an AWS account. We briefly covered the AWS Route 53 and Direct Connect topics as well.
