Hello and welcome to the AWS management console Dashboard. I'm logged into the front end of the console that allows me to view, manage and administer My Amazon Web service is cloud. The first thing I want to point out is that AWS has data centers across the globe
and I will want to make sure that I am being serviced by the AWS Data Center most near my physical location.
So I'm gonna go to the top of the dashboard and choosing the data center closest to me. Right now, I'm being serviced by Northern California, but I live in Spokane, Washington, and it's the Oregon Data Center that's closest to my physical location. So I'm in a quick select
and this is going to control my late and seeing delay once they start turning up. Service is, and so now I'm even a little bit closer because now I'm connected to the Oregon Data Center.
It happens that quickly,
so this home page of this management console is not where I go if I want to see all of the options and all of the different settings it within my AWS cloud service, but what I can do within this quick home page is Access Wizard's for things that I do quickly and timely and frequently,
or I can scroll down, and I can use the learn to build,
build feature. Really, really cool were those common things that I do in a day to day basis within the AWS Cloud, like creating new websites and Web APS or turning on a new storage service or setting up a new database. How about some Dev ups or machine learning?
Or what I can do here is I can watch videos. I can access tutorials or actually
do click through labs to make sure that I'm learning and understanding how to use this new service before I start turning on service is and actually threw me tearing start paying per minute or per hour.
So now, with storage, for example, I can create a new backup and recovery service. I can migrate data, or I can replace a tape backup to a cloud storage. Or I can set up a new compliant archive because I need to store some important data off premise to that second location that is not my primary data center,
but on a second service off prim and now is the cloud.
So I can click this
and learn more about Glacier. It will talk me through it. What I'm gonna accomplish with this lab
what I need before starting
What happens when I start turning on the project and how I'm going to be billed for it?
Then get started with the project.
Three steps, 60 minutes to go Through this tutorial.
I'm back after my home page and now in the top left. I could move over to service is where I can now see
the whole Amazon Web service is cloud open right up for me. There are a ton of families of service is that I can now view in manage day to day or stand up a new cloud. Platform service is my business demands.
Now, one of the things I want you to notice before we go into this too much deeper is within all of the families of solutions within a W s. Look at all the dozens of service is available to me is a cloud administrator
and it can get overwhelming pretty quickly.
A W s uses a lot of really great marketing terms for their nomenclature
how they name and identify their products. But if you haven't done your homework, there is no way you're going to know what the heck and a. W s elastic being stock is. So the good news is, is that you can sign up for a 12 month free tier cloud account, and that will give you plenty of time to learn the AWS cloud engine. And then when you're in that free tear clown
count, you can select any of these products within the service categories,
and then a W s will walk you right through it. How and when you would use that service. How you're building would work the whole smash.
AWS has really done a great job of making it easy. So let's dig a little bit deeper into some of these Service is.
So let's go build a new virtual machine by going into our last to compute cloud or easy to service is
so we'll spend some time in this course talking about hyper visors and virtual machines in its virtual ization. That makes the cloud possible. So in this quick star tab,
I can easily select any of the most popular virtual machine software images to start spinning up in building my cloud platform. You'll see Amazon has its own version of Linux
and we can
scroll down. And now here's Red had Enterprise. Lennox sues Lennix or I have a whole array of Windows servers and windows machines and one of the things I want you to know this is over here underneath our logo, you'll see a logo. This is free tier eligible
when what that means is is that I am able toe lab this up and turn it on free and no charge
while under my 12 month free tier account.
Now, if I scroll over here to AWS Marketplace, what I want you to see is now I have all of the AWS Echo partners that by clicking on any of these options, here's I scrolled down. What I'm going to be above stand up is not just a virtual computer, which is a virtual server or virtual desktop.
Now I can create a virtual network device,
things like a virtual firewall, air, virtual router or a virtual switch. So these will be service is that I stand up in my Cloud data center, which protect my Cloud Data Center virtual machines. So software to protect software or software to route between software or software to switch between
software, virtual machines and so
devices that stay in the cloud to support and manage my cloud, just like they were physical appliances. Any physical data center, I could stand these up as virtual appliances as well. So now I'm going to click on Barracuda, and what you're going to see here is that I can stand up a barrack oot a cloud
firewall for a ws as a pay as you go service or P A Y G
and you'll see over here on the right the different fees. So at six cents an hour, all the way up to $6.48 an hour, the differences that thes O. V A's or these virtual templates are small appliances medium
extra large. Or here's a four acts so extra extra extra extra large appliance
for $6.50. Our and the difference between these different size over Yates is how much
cloud service that used to turn him up and run them. So this is a performance thing. So if I have just a little bit a virtual CPU and a little bit of virtual memory and a little bit of virtual storage. And I create the small O. V a the small machine. It's not gonna cost me a lot per hour.
But if I'm gonna stand up this great big enterprise virtual server or this virtual appliance too
support and and firewall off my my virtual machines behind it, so hundreds or or even maybe even thousands of virtual machines behind it. And I have this great big firewall. Well, it's going to cost me six bucks an hour to turn that on and start using it.
Now, another service years I scrolled down. You'll see all these different families within this market place or what we're going to go ahead and do is we're gonna click on security products and what I want to show you here is we're gonna go ahead and click on this Palo Alto virtual machine, this next generation firewall. So we're gonna go ahead and select this.
What I want to show you here is instead of the pay as you
go Now, what you have is this. Bring your own license tear What's interesting about the cloud is the cloud providers in conjunction partnering with the vendors out there. The manufacturers that make these appliances and build the software. What I bring your own license allows you to do is
if you have this within your organization.
It allows me to have flexible licensing, meaning that I don't have licensing that. Onley allows me to stand up a firewall on premise, and then I have to buy a different license or a different instance of that virtual whatever to stand up in the cloud.
Now I just buy a single license, and it's a flexible license, and I can move it from prim
and then, if I want to migrate to the cloud over time, as long as I own that license or I pay the subscription for that license, I can migrate that license to the cloud and stand it up under a B Y o L service in an AWS or azure or whatever I want to do and not have to have redundant or multiple instances of
those licenses. One license for on prim and one for cloud,
and that's called B Y o l. Or bring your own license flexible licensing between on prim and cloud. Really, really cool stuff.
So now we're gonna take just a quick glance and a simple storage service or Amazon s three.
Now, you'll see here that this is where we can create a new storage container, a new storage repositories. You'll remember from our lectures that we need three copies of data on two different types of media with one of those media types being stored off premise so that we're going to use the cloud is our off premise location.
So we're gonna create a bucket and so will create this AWS stores three bucket. And then once we create our bucket, we need to give it a globally reachable D. N s name so that we can reach our storage bucket over the Internet and then use service is like secure FTP or sftp to securely copy and back up our data
to our new cloud bucket via a secure and encrypted
communication channel over the Internet. So in this case, we're gonna go happy
storage, and we're gonna put in the US West
Oregon Data Center. We're gonna hit, create,
and that's it. We've created our new storage bucket
And now what do we want to do? Do we want an upload, an object from our data center to know our new storage bucket? Or do we want to create a folder? So this allows us to create folders and sub folders within our new storage bucket, or we can create properties and permission. So Properties allows us to set up things like logging so that we can log to our
session incident, event manager or SIM so that we can log what's going on with our storage because we need to report
audit on how, who, how our storage is being used in who's using it. Or maybe we need to create permissions. We via access control lists on who and what groups of people within our business or outside our business can or cannot access via access control lists are new storage bucket.
And then here's some of the management components as well that we can use to manage Rs three storage depository moving forward metrics, inventory
replication, lifecycle management, etcetera. So thanks so much for joining us. We appreciate you watching the AWS dashboard demo. There's gonna be a couple more demonstrations on the AWS front end, and then we're gonna pivot to Microsoft Azure. So for now, on behalf of all of us that the cyber security and I t Learning Team, we want to say thank you for joining us.
We wish you and all of the users on your network Good day and happy packets.
