Premium Sandbox Lab - Essentials

We deploy the real environment, you take the scenario-based labs on us. Hands-on, from anywhere, at any time.

Time required: 2 Hours


This is a sandbox lab for the AWS Essentials course.  There are no specific instructions or tasks.  You can use this lab to follow along with each lesson in this course, or use it to periodically practice things you have learned.  It is all up to you!

A few important notes about this lab:

1) IAM is NOT accessible.  For account security reasons, we cannot open up IAM for editing.

2) Not every service is available for you to use in this lab.  Any service that is outside the scope of the AWS Essentials course has been restricted.

3) Services you can access and use include: VPC, S3, EC2, RDS, SNS, CloudWatch, ELB, Auto Scaling, Route 53 and Lambda (with a Lambda only role which grants lambda functions access to S3).

Therefore, you should be able to complete almost any task that is demonstrated in this course (with a few exceptions, i.e. anything that requires IAM access or additional credentials like the CLI).
