  2. Not a bad try, I'm not too disappointed an American English speaking presenter wasn't working

  3. if you want to test simple website with a couple of other pages pictures EC2 is enough to do that no need for S3 unless its a bigger job and more traffic? right?

  4. Thanks , this helped a lot . But sometimes I receive file not found error on a running page. When I remove cache , history and run the page again by typing the page address manually in browser’s address bar and add www with url it fixes the issue and page is up again . Can anybody suggest anything to about this issue and what steps should it take to resolve it. Thanks

  5. A very easy to understand video. I donot have any idea about EC2 and am forced to use for my PhD. Is this applicable for the trial account on AWS that I created?

  6. It's really very helpful in order to learn detailed infrastructure and functionality of AWS compute features.
    Thank you alot

  7. Very good explaination and it makes simple to understand amzon EC2. I want to know about computing capacity(MIPS) of an instance. suppose I am taking General Purpose instance t3.small then please tell me what is the way to calculate its capacity in MIPS

  8. Brother i am intrested to learn cloud computing in aws platform currently i am doing in CSE so plzzz tell me which learning path is better for getting a job in india also tell about system requirements for learning a cloud computing

  9. This AWS EC2 training Video is awesome.
    Very neatly explained in simple language.
    No need to have prior knowledge on AWS EC2.
    Anybody from Software can easily understand it and grasp it without sleeping.
    You just need to have some patience for the length of the video of 22 minutes.
    If this video timeline is broken into 5mins video parts, that would be great.
    A 5-minute video will help us understand and keep our focus on learning without any distractions.
    Pictorial representation is very good.
    The training approach is very good.
    The presentation is very good.
    Very neatly broken down the learning parts.

  10. Thank you for taking the time to explain this. However, the first 5 minutes are useless. Just get to the point. EXPLAIN what an EC2 is. Don't use wrong terminology. For. eg. "My users need to know when new products are launched". Its not users, its customers. You are going to confuse your viewers.
    My understand of an instance is this: I have an application that I want my employees to use. So I would order a computer/server from Dell. I am going to provide my specifications (OS, HW, CPU, Memory, etc). Once the server is delivered, I would get my IT team to build it and install the application and get it ready for the employees to use this server. All this can take 1-5 weeks or more. On a Cloud, you do all the above steps…..but VIRTUALLY. So the physical server you build (without utilizing Cloud), is actually an EC2 instance. You specify OS, storage, memory, etc. All this can be done in a matter of minutes, as opposed to 1-5 weeks. This is an EC2 instance.

  11. Yep there is nothing as exciting in the world as to work from home in addition to work in the office… Yeeeii…

  12. Can you please explain how to perform windows domain joining using ws server instance.i mean remote domain joining?is it possible to load windows/linux client based instances on aws?

  13. There are certain things here that any teacher doesn't explain. First, what is an "instance" in the AWS? Everyone keeps on saying the word but there are many people including me who have no idea what is meant by "instance" here. Then no teacher gives an example of an approximate basic cost for some example websites. E.g. How much would it approximately cost to host a static website which only takes in user comments, of 10 articles of 3000 words each, with an average 1000 visits per month? How much would be the approximate cost to host a website of 10k words that gets 5000 visits per month?
    Why does everyone start explaining only what is readily available on AWS website?
