Course Description

Monitoring and benchmarking are essential when designing cloud that considers disaster recovery, high availability, and failover.

In this course, you'll recognize the cloud design considerations that provide the highest possible availability, the levels of redundancy that ensure services continue in the case of a disaster, and the procedures that can be implemented for disaster recovery and business continuity.

Moving on, you'll examine common deployment architectures to address availability and resiliency, the parameters and performance indices monitored at each cloud deployment level, and the goals of benchmarking.

Next, you'll examine the different failover scenarios prevalent in cloud and the prominent use cases for placement groups and single and multiple availability zones. You'll configure EC2 Linux instances, install the Iperf network benchmark tool, and test TCP and UDP network performance.

Lastly, you'll benchmark network throughput on an Amazon EC2 Windows instance and configure active-passive failover with multiple primary and secondary record resources.

This course can be used in preparation for the CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ (CLO-002) certification exam.
