Learning Path: AWS: Building Secured Applications with AWS

Leverage various AWS components and services to build highly scalable and reliable cloud environments


Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery, and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Are you an application developer or an architect looking to develop or architect applications for AWS? Or are you interested in securing applications running in the AWS cloud system? If yes, then this Learning Path is for you.

Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it. The highlights of this Learning Path are:

  • Learn how to store a nearly unlimited number of files in a low-cost object store
  • Build your own custom virtual private cloud

Let’s take a look at your journey. This Learning Path will show you how to get started with some of the powerful and exciting core technologies available on AWS enabling you to fully manage user information and privilege service on your virtual network environment. It will then teach you Elastic Compute Cloud(EC2), offering you nearly infinite flexible compute power in the cloud, with bespoke virtualized, compute options including database optimized instances, GPU instances, and FPGA instances, and Simple Storage Service (S3), allowing you to store a nearly unlimited number of files in a low-cost object store. Amazon’s Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) gives you a fully-managed application load balancing service, similar to NGINX and HAPROXY, but fine-tuned for the Amazon environment allowing you to manage your traffic. Moving ahead, you’ll explore Identity Access Management (IAM) and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) that gives you the essential capability to create a secure and isolated virtual datacenter in the cloud, complete with fine-grained user access controls and activity monitoring. The Learning Path will also show by how to run a Node.JS-based web API, making use of all of these fully-managed services, resulting in a fully functionally, fault–tolerant, next-generation web scale application.

After completing this Learning Path, you’ll be able to secure your applications from the beginning of the architecture/development process.
