Expert AWS Development

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.

Monitoring and optimizing the cost of the EC2 infrastructure

In traditional on-premises applications, optimization of cost is really very challenging because you have to predict future business needs and capacity.

The following best practices will help you to build a cost-optimized architecture:

  • Make sure that your demands and costs move in line with each other
  • Analyze the cost
  • Ensure that costs will reduce with time
  • Use appropriate AWS resources to minimize the costs

Optimization of cost is a continuous process in the improvement and refinement of your system over its complete life cycle. Your system should utilize all the resources fully and meet its functional requirements while minimizing costs.

You can use the following design principles to optimize costs in the cloud:

  • Adopt a model for consumption: You should adopt a model that will help you to identify the consumption of computing resources, and it should increase or decrease through auto scaling as per the business requirements. It should...
