Amazon Web Services, Part 5 of 8: Compute Services

with David Fraas

Building to run your business starts with compute whether you are building mobile apps or running massive clusters, AWS is the backbone to Amazon’s cloud services and in this course we will start by looking at auto scaling which helps you maintain app availability and helps you dynamically scale your amazon EC2 capacity up or down automatically according to conditions you define. We will then go over elastic load balancer which automatically distributes traffic across multiple targets across Amazon EC2 instances. Next we cover an easy to use service for deploying applications and services called Beanstalk. Finally we cover the newest technology called server less computing which is Lambda which runs your code which doesn't require you to provision or manage servers.
