About This Class


You’ve heard about Amazon AWS and all the great things it can do. The problem is you feel like you need a technical degree just to understand what everything means. Everywhere you look are other people just as confused as you are.

The good news is you don’t need a strong technical background to understand Amazon AWS. You just need it explained in a way that makes sense. An explanation in easy to understand terms that focuses on just the AWS services that you need for your business.

This course breaks down the entire Amazon AWS ecosystem in easy to understand terms and doesn’t overwhelm you with all the technical jargon. In this course I just focus on the AWS services that matter to you and your business.

In this course we break down these services:

  • Amazon S3 - storing your content securely in the cloud and providing the fastest access to your content from anywhere in the world

  • Amazon Cloudfront - easy access to a world class content delivery network custom tailored to your needs.

  • Amazon EC2 - AWS servers in the cloud, what they are and how to get started with ready to run servers that require no configuration

  • Amazon Workmail - best-in-class hosted email for your business

I don’t need to tell you how reliable Amazon’s infrastructure is. It runs one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the world. You can use this same infrastructure for your business and stop leaving your business websites in the hands of frustrating web hosts that are too slow and too expensive.
