There’s another task to accomplish which has been knocking my head for a while. This has to do with one of the most popular cloud computing environments available. I do not pretend to cover the majority of aspects in good depth but the thing is to take advantage of this platform and organize a brief tech class workshop with my students of the subject Web App Management. To start with an overview to explain some concepts related to cloud computing and what exactly Amazon Web Services is, why it was successfully and widely spread and what a large portfolio and services is currently offering.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a collection of remote computing services that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon. Keep on reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Web_Services
I am currently enrolling on a essential course to learn a few key principles I should start with to feel at easy with this environment (due to I’m not so familiar with the cloud computing space). Because of my lack of time I do not feel like presenting here whatever I do.
But to begin with I have been doing research to deal with the AWS Management Console, the starting point for most AWS Services, to manage and maintain solutions. I marveled at this pretty rich environment…
Note that there is a possibility to manage part of the platform creating yourself a free account.
As the very first thing I’ve taken a look at creating the Identity Access Management user, so I can create users in groups and secure resources later if I would want. Thus as long as I walk through a wizard that creates a group and let me add users at the same time, I was astonished by the powerful system of permissions and policies that I can manage.by
