In this live environment, we will configure a website to failover from an EC2 instance to a static failover website hosted on s3. To meet our objective, we will create a website on an EC2 instance, configure Route 53 with failover routing, and configure an s3 bucket where we host a static failover website. We will then simulate failover by stopping the EC2 instance, and our website address will then failover to the failover.html file hosted on our s3 bucket.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
