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.

Chapter 8. Traditional Web Hosting – Amazon EC2 and Elastic Load Balancing

In the previous chapter, we discussed traditional web hosting, web hosting in the cloud using AWS, and the architecture for the application. We also saw a comparison between EC2 instances with a load balancer, Docker, and serverless architecture such as Amazon Lambda, as well as use cases for these architectures.

In this chapter, we will discuss Amazon EC2 best practices and troubleshooting. Also, we will cover the advanced topics of Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), auto scaling, and fault tolerance. We will monitor and optimize the infrastructure cost. Lastly, we will deploy a practical real-world example of a CI/CD application with EC2 instances and a load balancer.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Amazon EC2 best practices and troubleshooting
  • Elastic Load Balancing, auto scaling, and fault tolerance
  • Monitoring and optimizing the cost of the infrastructure
  • Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment...
