In the learning activity, the student will learn about Network Load Balancers. The lesson will take a deeper dive into the Network Load Balancer, presenting its features and use case, and highlighting comparisons between the Network Load Balancer and the Application Load Balancer. The student will walk through preparing the AWS environment for the Network Load Balancer (configuring subnets, network ACL, and EC2 instances). When the preparation is complete, the student will create and configure a Network Load Balancer. After configuration of the Load Balancer, the student will work from the CLI to run a small test on the Load Balancer and view the results in the CloudWatch Monitor.

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.
