    The purpose of this module is to introduce students to three fundamental AWS networking and content delivery services: Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon Route 53, and Amazon CloudFront. Students will have the opportunity to label a virtual private cloud (VPC) network architecture diagram, design a VPC, watch how a VPC is built, and finally build a VPC themselves.
  • Module 6: Compute
    The purpose of this module is to introduce many of the compute services that Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers. These services include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), AWS Lambda, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS).
  • Module 7: Storage
    The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the various options for storing data with AWS. The module describes four different storage technologies.

Storage is one of the core AWS service areas, and it is important for your students to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each technology. The module concludes with an activity that gives students an opportunity to apply what they learned to a real-world scenario. After providing this conceptual foundation, the module describes the following storage services:
    • Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) 
    • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) 
    • Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS)
    • Amazon Simple Storage Service Glacier
  • Module 8: Databases
    The purpose of this module is to introduce students to four of the most commonly used AWS database services. The module describes four different database services. The module focuses on the database services that are described so that students can decide which database service to use for various use cases.
