Configuring and Deploying VPCs with Multiple Subnets

Configuring and Deploying VPCs with Multiple Subnets


Free of Charge

This course covers configuring and deploying an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) with multiple subnets across two Availability Zones beyond the fundamental level. The course also covers best practices and common use scenarios for a variety of basic network architectures built with Amazon VPC.

Who should attend

This course is intended for:

  • Network engineers
  • Enterprise architects
  • Infrastructure architects
  • System operators
  • Software engineers
  • Application architects 

Course Prerequisites

We recommend that attendees of this course have 2 years networking experience and 2–5 years AWS experience. In addition, attendees should have a working understanding of:

  • Business networking, including routing technology, IP addressing, and network security
  • Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC)
  • Networking standards
  • Protocol standards
  • Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model
  • Network access control list (network ACL)
  • Switching protocols
  • Domain Name System (DNS)
  • Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR)

What you will learn

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Describe how to deploy and configure Amazon VPCs, subnets, internet gateways, and route tables.
  • Identify ways to design, deploy, and configure a simple Amazon VPC with access through the internet.
  • Explain how to secure an Amazon VPC infrastructure using security groups and network access control lists (network ACLs).
  • Identify ways to expand a simple Amazon VPC across multiple Availability Zones to provide higher availability.
  • Recognize ways to design, deploy, and configure a multi-tier Amazon VPC that lets you reduce or eliminate the public availability of critical resources.
