In this live AWS environment, you will use AWS CloudFormation to deploy your own website Canary application. Website canaries are programs commonly used to monitor the status of sites or services to determine uptime, calculate availability and alert when there are potential failures. Because you will deploy the canary with CloudFormation, you will avoid much of the manual setup that would otherwise be required, and you will be able to describe your AWS infrastructure for this application in a JSON template.

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.
