Getting Started with AWS | Amazon Web Services BASICS

Hi. Welcome to the video. My name is xxxx And in this video, I want to introduce you to AWS, the Amazon Web Services. Now if you already know AWS , you know they have a lot of services and getting started can be tough. If you don’t know them, we’ll get to know AWS in this video. By the end of video, we’ll have a very basic website being deployed on AWS so that we can actually visit it in the web. And you will hopefully have a better understanding of what AWS is about how it generally works, and how you can navigate general services they offer. So let’s get started. lets get started so called regions each orange circle is a region each of these regions also have availability zones that are like extra rooms in a big hall you could say which are clearly separated from the upper rooms so that if one room fails the other one still keep on running you could adjust the domain, though you cant change the general the root domain here on this page. You would need to do this in a different service and I won’t do it here.

  6. Christopher Krah says:

    That's a wrong explanation of what regions and AZs are. Regions are not data centers.

  20. Taburnok says:

    Nice presentation…thanks..

  21. MrMikomi says:

    Hi, is that 750 hours of wall clock time that the instance is "up" ie from when you click launch until when you click terminate? Or is that elapsed CPU time? I thought you were only supposed to pay for processing cycles or in 100ms chunks of CPU time. I am confused. Thanks.

  22. MrMikomi says:

    "Environment settings" option in beanstalk configuration seems to have been removed.

  23. MrMikomi says:

    The mind boggles at how much we are expected to know as developers. There seems no end to the amount of cross-cutting languages, frameworks, concepts etc that we are expected to understand and become proficient in.

  24. Sir Albert says:

    Fantastic tutorial. Thank you.

  25. Violet Yap says:

    AWS is a scam and lousy choice! I couldn't transfer my WordPress site because of their upload limit. Within a day I get notified about exceeding free tier, I cancelled the account immediately, they deducted USD35 from my card right away. This amount u can pay for hosting for at least 4 mths with other better hosting. Beware of AWS scam!

  26. John Mutuma says:

    Hey Max! Thank you very much for this guide.

  27. Ravi Parekh says:

    This was a very useful video for me, thanks very much for this! I appreciate it

  28. Darshit Gajjar says:

    Sir aws give database free like MySQL and mongodb

  29. Posi P says:

    If your not on AWS don't start. It sucks when you port out. AWS is the old way to do it. It sucks and cost too much.

  30. Posi P says:

    When you migrate a Windows server off AWS you find out that you built the server the wrong way the 1st time. Now you will have all types of issues when you try to move it. And then when you do you will find out the version of windows that AWS installed was an Amazon version of the software and needs to be inside the AWS to make it work. AWS is like training wheels. After you get confidence in working your data center from a remote location then you can upgrade to a data center without the training wheels.
    And it cost way to much. I get a dedicated server for the same cost of a shared AWS install. People liked TV when it was only 3-channels too.

    Awesome Video Love Watching Your Channel Post

    More videos👏👋👍👌🙌👏👋👍✌👌

  38. Michael Trossbach says:

    The troubleshooting around 22:30 in response to the "Degraded" status is terribly explained, given that this is a "Getting Started" video. You move right through steps without explaining much of the thought process that led you to this way of resolving the problem.

  39. Bruce Olsen says:

    Very nice – clear and concise with enough detail to understand some of the behind the scenes actions.

  47. Alfred Raouf says:

    I saw your course about serverless app using lambda. I want to know how (and if your course address this) to handle common code, specifically database connection code. Do I have to specify in every lambda function how to connect to a MySQL database? What about common functions, common global variables? how is that shared/used in lambda?

  48. Kadshah Nagibe says:

    This is a very good overview thanks for posting. In the free version if you make any modifications to parameters that are not part of the free version do they let you know before charging you?

  49. Hernán Camilo says:

    Great tutorial, as always, Maximilian.
    Quick question: compared to Lightsail, would you say that beanstalk is more flexible and suited for larger applications? That is to say, Lightsail would be a lot more restricted and more of a content provider applications? Thank you!

  65. shailendra jain says:

    This tutorial was good. I attend one demo of AWS EC2 which was good and informative with hands-on if anybody wants so can see here:
    This AWS EC2 tutorial will help you to understand what is EC2, Concepts & terminologies with hands-on.

  66. Christopher Caldwell says:

    I bought your AWS Serverless course and it has helped a lot! A bonus section, or even another course on using SAM to configure AWS would be pretty great as well. You use the console the entire course, which is great for newbies such as myself, but I think it would be really valuable to get your take on CloudFormation, CodePipeline, and the rest.

  67. Bridget Sarah says:

    Thank you for the video, that's been the best video I've seen how to do it! Highly recommended!

    Thanks Max! one question from me here,I have still 7 months left from my test period for AWS. If I select a stronger server ( 8 gig memory at least for example) even if the server runs less than 750 hours per month do I need to pay from the start?

  72. Akash Sharma says:

    Thanks for sharing

    good video, but for future reference, you could probably skip over the making an account part

  75. tyre king says:

    Extremely helpful thank you

  76. 野村ERIK says:

    What should a person study before AWS to be prepared? Python, Cisco, VMware? I have no idea which path to take as there are too many confusing platforms and certifications. I feel like the only people who get good at this stuff are people with insider connections who were given clear guidance early on.

  77. Vishnu E says:

    first of all thanks for the video. I have a doubt.
    How can I connect the postgres db in my local machine while hosting the node api on aws?

  78. Nyakiringa wa Nganga says:

    AWS Mining is a scam. For 4 months they have promised to release our funds so that we can continue trading in the new version known as AWS Capital. The goal posts keep changing. We believe we will not get a penny hence we keep being given different stories. Anyone reading this, run while you still have your cash on you. Don't be like some of us. Put your money in a traditional business. That way you have some sort of control as to what happens with it.

  79. Shadow Storm says:

    this is garbage why wouldn't you just manage your own database and web servers?

  80. Tato Ma says:

    Extremely useful tutorial. Thanks for all your works.

  81. Mahdi Safari says:

  84. Njabulo Mbuli says:

    Max I am busy going through your course on react and I can't thank you enough 😄 Your accent threw me off in the beginning but once I got used to it, I felt like I was being taught by a Swiss scientist lol😅

    Thanks again Max. Even your youtube videos are on point👍

    I'm cool now

  92. Warron French says:

    A few months ago I created an account, based on the adverts that the services are free so long as you stay within limits. I couldn't figure out if I hadn't built any EC2 instances yet, why I had to provide a credit card! Your comment around 5:22, stating that "Yes ,you have to provide a credit card number" sort of negates the fact that you can create EC2 instances. So now I know the "free" "startup" to learn this stuff is simply a misleading gimmick. Glad I didn't get caught up in the hype. 🙁

  93. Warron French says:

    Another note, Maximillian/Academind, this is the first video I have been able to find that explains what I wanted to know… HOW to GET STARTED. (sorry for the caps). I have been reviewing Youtube links looking for something precisely like this for months.

  94. 80Vikram says:
