By: Atul Mistry

Overview of this book

Expert AWS Development begins with the installation of the AWS SDK and you will go on to get hands-on experience of creating an application using the AWS Management Console and the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). Then, you will integrate applications with AWS services such as DynamoDB, Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, Amazon SQS, and Amazon SWF. Following this, you will get well versed with CI/CD workflow and work with four major phases in the release process – Source, Build, Test, and Production. Then, you will learn to apply AWS Developer tools to your Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) workflow. Later, you will learn about user authentication using Amazon Cognito, and also how you can evaluate the best architecture as per your infrastructure costs. You will learn about Amazon EC2 service and will deploy an app using it. You will also deploy a practical real-world example of a CI/CD application with the Serverless Application Framework, which is known as AWS Lambda. Finally, you will learn how to build, develop, and deploy the Application using AWS Developer tools such as AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and AWS CodePipeline, as per your project requirements.

Elastic Load Balancing

Elastic Load Balancing(ELB) is a service from AWS to balance the load automatically. It will help distribute incoming traffic, and scales the resources automatically, to meet demand. Users enable it within a single or multiple-availability zones to maintain application performance.

ELB offers features including:

  • Automatically detecting the unhealthy Amazon EC2 instances
  • Spreading incoming traffic to healthy channels
  • Secure Sockets Layer(SSL) certificates are centrally managed
  • Public key authentication
  • Supports for IPv4 and IPv6

Elastic Load Balancer supports the following three types of load balancers:

  • Application Load Balancers: Best suited for HTTP and HTTPS traffic and advanced request routing
  • Network Load Balancers: Best suited for TCP traffic and to get extreme performance
  • Classic Load Balancers: Connection and request level, load balancing across multiple Amazon EC2 instances

It contains the following benefits:

  • Highly Available: Incoming traffic will be distributed between...
