In this series of liveProjects, you’ll take on the role of a cloud engineer who’s just accepted a new role at an e-commerce company. Your new employer uses Terraform to create and provision their cloud, and you’re in over your head. You need to quickly get up to speed with how Terraform works, by building a complete functioning network.
Once you’ve mastered your network, your new boss has a task for you: create the infrastructure for the team’s microservices, figure out how to implement a continuous deployment pipeline, and manage NoSQL services. Each project in this series tackles a different challenge of setting up a cost-effective cloud infrastructure for an e-commerce site.
In this liveProject, you’ll build a basic foundation of network infrastructure using Terraform and AWS. You’ll start by setting up your local environment and creating a three-tier architecture network, then create routing and gateways, and finish up by testing your network’s connectivity and security.
In this liveProject, you’ll create and deploy a basic e-commerce website on top of a Terraform and AWS-based cloud infrastructure. You’ll start by building your sample site, and then package it in a Docker image and manually push it to an ECR repository. Next, you’ll create an ECS cluster, launch configuration, ECS roles, permissions, and security Groups for ECS. Finally, you’ll set up task definitions to run your applications as tasks, load balancers to balance the workload from all the incoming requests from users, and configure routing to handle all traffic in and out of the network. When you’re finished, you’ll be confident building production-ready apps based on Docker and ECS.
In this liveProject, you’ll use Docker to set up a pipeline for a cloud-hosted e-commerce store from scratch. You’ll start by creating a private repository using AWS CodeCommit, CodeBuild project, and a CodePipeline to automate pushing Docker images to your ECR repository. Finally, you’ll establish blue/green deployments with CodeDeploy and test your functionality by deploying some live code to build a live understanding of zero-downtime type of deployments.
In this liveProject, you’ll go hands on with the cross replication of an S3 bucket, and backing up DynamoDB in real time using DynamoDB streams. You’ll set up the source and target region, policies to perform replication, and then test it’s working. Finally, you’ll setup and load data using local provisioners and a solution using DynamoDB streams.
This liveProject is for developers and cloud engineers with a basic understanding of Cloud essentials, networking basics, database basics, and backups. Some small costs ($10-$20) may be required to access AWS resources. To begin this liveProject you will need to be familiar with the following:
In this liveProject, you’ll learn how to manually build a network infrastructure from scratch.
