Course Description

In this challenge, you will configure and deploy a highly available and secure website by using Amazon Web Services (AWS). First, you will establish a secure network environment by using a network access control list (ACL) and a security group, and then you will configure a redundant Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket to store static assets. Next, you will create a fleet of web servers running on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance in a virtual private cloud (VPC) by using an Auto Scaling group. Finally, you will create an Application Load Balancer to use with the Auto Scaling group. Note: Once you begin the challenge, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge before you start.
