greetings and salutations All you divers into cloud knowledge. I hope you're ready for a deep dive into a W s elastic block store and how we can use eight of us cloud storage for backup in retention of our organization's mission Critical data.
So put on your wet suit and flippers and let's go drifting with the AWS dolphins of data and swimming with the AWS Simple storage service s three.
So I could perform an entire course on Amazon Web service of storage capabilities. What a W s does with storage is that big and there that many gears and knobs to play with under the hood of our storage engine. This is a great slide because it talks to the maturity over 15 years of the storage capabilities and offerings via A W s and storage
from Amazon's elastic file system E F s
to block storage and elastic block story B s, toe object storage and Amazon Simple Storage Service s three. There's a lot for the student to learn and a lot of tech and storage terms for me to completely confuse and overwhelm you with so literally you will feel like you're underwater having to learn all that's going on in AWS Cloud storage, but we're going to try to make it easy.
So there are a lot of storage types and categories of storage In A W S Object Storage is a piece of data like documents, images or videos that are stored with some metadata in a flat structure. It provides the data to applications via AP eyes over the Internet. It is simple to build anything on top of an object store. For example, you can easily build an application
on top of an s3 that delivers content to users by making a P A calls over the Internet. Block storage is data presented to your instances a disc William.
It provides low single digit Leighton see across the single Amazon E C. Two instances Elastic block stores popular for *** volumes and databases. File storage is presented via a file system interface and acts just like a local file system. Amazon Elastic File System E. F s
provide shared access to data via multiple Amazon Easy two instances
with low latent sees. Amazon Glacier is a secure, durable and extremely low cost storage service for data archiving and long term backup. It is designed to deliver five dimes of durability and provides comprehensive security and compliance capabilities that can meet even the most stringent regulatory requirements.
So Amazon Simple Storage Service is a Web service that enables users to store data in the cloud you can then download data or use data with other. A. W s service is
such as Amazon elastic. Compute cloud Easy to Amazon. S3 is highly scalable, with unlimited storage base as three offers high availability and durability with service side encryption data rest capabilities as three is fundamentally different from other file repositories
because it doesn't have a file system. All objects are stored in a flat name space and are organized by buckets.
It is a regional service, and that means that content is automatically replicated within a region for durability. S3 is one of the most popular object stores available on Internet today, as three is easy to make, to manage and supports easy integration via 1/3 party tools
and a primary reason why S3 is so popular is because of its extremely low cost,
where you could store a large amount of data at a very low cost. There is no minimum cost associate with s3,
and you pay only for what you need. You can further lower the cost by storing the data in a different class of S three such as infrequent access or I A or reduced redundancy or by creating a life cycle policy in which you archive old files to Amazon Glacier
to further reduce the cost.
I don't want you to think that I work for A W S and that this module and its content is an advertisement for Amazon. Web service is in truth, my current role has been helping customers move in my great time Microsoft Azure more than any other clown platform. But I'm a big fan of a W s.
And it has to mean something. If Netflix uses A W. S S three as their cloud data warehouse
history has a ton of use cases for the enterprise, including being a popular backup target for files since it is so durable and reliable as three is used for organization seeking to move away from magnetic tape. And it's a great solution for an organization seeking to benefit from disaster recovery and planning. D r
Amazon elastic block store offers a persistent stories for Amazon. Easy two instances are persistent. Storage means the storage is independent outside the lifespan of an easy to instance, EBS volumes provide durable block level storage for use with Amazon Easy two instances
volumes air network attached and can run independently of the easy to instance,
you kill the Amazon machine image. Your storage volume is still there until you discard it. Once you build an E. B s volume and acts like a hard drive of a server with boot partitions that you need to format just like any other storage platform when formatting it, you create a file system on top of the storage volume. And with that,
you can then run any workload your heart desires.
Three. A bucket is actually a container for storing objects. You can compare a bucket toe a folder on a computer. We're used to our various files. You can create multiple folders inside a folder and in an S three bucket you can create multiple folders. The name of the bucket must be unique, which means you cannot have two buckets with the same name, even across multiple regions. And the reason why
is because this unique name is how you're going to reach
this new bucket that you create via U R L over the Internet.
So we're gonna go ahead and do now is we're gonna go ahead and create this new AWS bucket.
So we're gonna go up here to service is
and then in storage. We're gonna quick s3.
And this is where we're gonna be able to create a new bucket. We're gonna be able to upload or data, and we're gonna be a post set up our permissions for who can access and read and write our new bucket.
We're gonna go ahead and create the bucket now and we're gonna give it that unique D. N s name which in this case is gonna be all over lower case.
We're gonna call a happy packets test
and we're gonna choose the region. So these are all the different rare regions that we can choose from. And in our case, Northern California is closest to our physical location.
We're not gonna copy setting sermon existing bucket, so we're gonna go ahead hit next. This is where if we want to keep all their versions of the object in the same budget bucket, weaken Gawain, Click the button or we can log request to the access of our bucket. Ah, we can use tracking keys and names and values so that we can control
Ah, project costs. What we're gonna go ahead and do, though, is we're gonna We are gonna enable cloudwatch monitoring, which is gonna allow us to get metrics and
analytics on how we're using our buckets so that we can do some proper cost management. We're gonna go ahead and click next. So now with this part, we can control all permissions and access for Reed right privileges to our new storage volume. So what do we want to do? Do we want to block all public access
or do we want a block public assets too, But
buckets and objects that are created through any new a c l's that we might create. Yeah, that's what we're gonna do. We want to create new rules for this new bucket, and we're going to go ahead and hit next. So here's a summary of everything that we've created
all looks good. So we're gonna go ahead and create the bucket
and bam there. Here's our bucket called Happy Packets Test.
So now when we go in and we can upload new objects, we can create a folder.
So we give the folder a new name. We can go in and choose our encryption for a data at rest. We could go into properties and we conceive version ing.
Our access logging are static Web hosting, which also object level logging. So set up our logging so that our network management system is reporting on who's accessing what within our storage volumes. We can go in here with our permissions, and this is where we can
creator access control lists for a right objects are reads
so forth.
And this is where we control our life cycle management things like replication in turn on our offer. Analytics and metrics and inventory management
for what's going on in her buckets across our new a ws as three service
pretty cool stuff.
Oh no, it's time for our scary data diving, learning check. But diving in today's deep end of a W s storage is so easy that a dog can do it. So let's test our respirators and spit in our goggles to keep them from fogging and Let's dive in.
What are the four types of Amazon storage we covered?
What is Amazon Web service? Izzie B s.
What are the three use cases of A. W S, C. B s
and what is an s tree bucket. So you have about 18 minutes left of 02 and your tanks to look at the fish. So come back in a couple of hours. You might have to hold your breath and let's review our answers together.
So welcome back. And I hope you didn't have to hold your breath too long. So there are a lot of stores, types and options in A W S. But the four we covered today or Amazon Elastic File system E F F for the file level storage for an easy to instance elastic block store for creating block level volumes that could look like dis tries for easy two instances
as Three Objects Store,
which is objects during accessed over the Internet, and Amazon Glacier, which is a long term data archiving data backup storage target. Amazon Elastic block stores. Thean dependent storage volume that an easy to use is that when the easy two instances deleted and you no longer need that Amazon machine image, am I? You can still access the storage.
There were several uses A W s elastic block storage
reviewed in today's lecture. The use cases of EBS were that it creates persistent storage. Even if our easy two instances deleted E B s can create a volume that acts like a hard drive to a compute platform like a server, and EBS volumes can support any workload you want to give them
stand up any application or program your organization might need
to get the business done. And an S three bucket is a container. The store's objects like images and also holds meta data about the storage objects you Kate folders and a bucket and folders in those folders, just like you can with any other storage fry volume.
So I think we covered a lot of today's riff lecture today. We talked about the four of the many types of A W s storage and the elastic block store and its use cases as three buckets and simple storage service. And I hope your stick time goes pretty well so far
and that you're becoming a fighter pilot in the cloud with all your flying and stick time in the cyber A W s labs
and in your AWS free tier account. If you're not there yet, then you better start eating some porridge and get those carb levels boosted because there's more cloud learning to come. Because next time we're going to go deeper into AWS Compute offerings on. Learn about this great developer. Compute platform A W s calls Lambda.
So on behalf of all of us at the cyber security and I t learning keep, we wanna wish you and all of your users on your network a good day. Best of luck to you on your cyber labs. And until then and until next time, we want to say thank you so much for joining us. Take care,
Be safe
and happy packets.
