Look inside

You’re a cloud engineer working for the Cumberland City Council. An increase in traffic violations has led to an increase in traffic to its website—and a decrease in site performance. Your task is to migrate the existing on-premises website to the AWS public cloud as part of a “Traffic Safety Upliftment” initiative to improve performance and availability. You’ll set up the project prerequisites, register the domain, redirect DNS, configure the Amazon S3 Bucket, perform logging and monitoring, and test the static website.
