In this learning activity, we will use Amazon Lightsail to create a simple Linux instance.

The goal for this activity is to gain experience with:

  • The basic components of Lightsail
  • Creating SSH keys to connect to Lightsail
  • Creating a Lightsail instance
  • Instance monitoring basics
  • Basic instance operations (Start, Stop, Restart)
  • Deleting instances

An understanding of these objectives is essential for intermediate-level tasks in Lightsail.

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.
