Course Description

In this challenge, you will implement scaling for an Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) instance. First, you will create security groups, and then you will deploy a MySQL DB instance. Next, you will create an Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2) instance to act as a server, and then you will add data to the database. Finally, you will scale the RDS instance vertically and horizontally, and then you will verify that you can access the data. Note: Once you begin the challenge, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge.
