  1. In "EC2", Elastic means you can expand the hardware like vCPUs, RAM, Storage…and for sure, we can also shrink them down.

  2. Ughm I think there is something he forgot to mention. If "on demand" option is on, you are only allocating the ressources chosen WHEN you start a session. Let's say I run a Finite Element Analysis simulation that will take me 12h by using the d2.8xLarge instance you will pay the hourly rate for the 12 hours of running the simulation. Which is not expensive considering that computing jobs are super expensive nad the price you spend on the ressources (CPUs, RAM and storage) is usually billed to the client. However, if you are not "on demand" you will have a monthly charge because you are occupying those ressources even if you're not running any simulation. (Or at least you have priority over them).

  3. How do you update your site once is up ? Say you want to tweak some part of the code so how do you upgrade to the server ?

  4. Jesus Christ man this was supposed to be helpful but now i am feeling dumber than before .
    Doctors and developers are on a different level altogether.

  5. For people who follow this video steps and don't find the node command option in the configuration. AWS changed it. Now you have to add a file and name it Procfile its extension is .file and write in it web: npm start AWS detects this file and run this command

  6. What are the AWS benefits? I created my Amazon Affiliate Website https://www.thesuperfood.net/. Which idea can you propose me to use it on my website? thanks.

  7. what if i opened an account and all, but never made any instances or application, would they charge me after a year, even if i didn’t consume any of my free 750 hours??? 🧐🧐

  8. 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

  9. Watching this video because I've an interview with AWS day after tomorrow. I hope I get the job. I've cleared all the rounds, only personal interview is left. Life's hard

  12. great video but what if your website grows and you get more traffic? that monthly bill could be in the hundreds. i have a video sharing site like YT called roxytube dot com. i have a dedicated server and thinking of staying with that but not sure yet. ALSO, can you use just S3 for hosting your site or do you need to launch a virtual machine too?

  13. They 'NEED' (no they don't) your credit card, not because you "might exceed" their free tiers, but because when you hit one of those pay walls, you'll know how easy it is to just approve the purchase. If you had to enter your card info in then, you might have time to think about it. It's called Social Engineering.
