Simplifying Hybrid Cloud Adoption with AWS

By: Frankie Costa Negro

Overview of this book

The hybrid edge specialty is often misunderstood because it began with an on-premises-focused view encompassing everything not running inside the traditional data center. If you too have workloads that need to live on premises and need a solution to bridge the gap between both worlds, this book will show you how AWS Outposts allows workloads to leverage the benefits of the cloud running on top of AWS technology. In this book, you’ll learn what the Edge space is, the capabilities to look for when selecting a solution to operate in this realm, and how AWS Outposts delivers. The use cases for Outposts are thoroughly explained and the physical characteristics are detailed alongside the service logical constructs and facility requirements. You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the sales process—from order placement to rack delivery to your location. As you advance, you’ll explore how AWS Outposts works in real life with step-by-step examples using AWS CLI and AWS Console before concluding your journey with an extensive overview of security and business continuity for maximizing the value delivered by the product. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to create compelling hybrid architectures, solve complex use cases for hybrid scenarios, and get ready for your way forward with the help of expert guidance.

In this chapter, we delved into the AWS capabilities at your disposal to monitor AWS Outposts. This chapter was heavily hands-on, with several examples to illustrate the potential of the services available to you. There is a lot more to it; Amazon CloudWatch is a very complex service, and it could have an entire book dedicated to it.

Congratulations on making it to this point; our journey has covered plenty of information and discoveries. It is not easy to get an AWS Outpost to play with, and I hope this book delivered on its promise to make you an Outposts hero. You already are one at this point, as the next chapters are light and easy by comparison.

It is now time to relax; we are on the last mile. In the next chapter, we will talk about what happens when things go wrong. That would be a nice title, but let’s give it the name Outposts Maintenance for the sake of elegance. Onto the next chapter!
