By the end of this project, you will have successfully set up two virtual machines using Amazon Web Services and tested a Linux-based virtual machine. Virtual machines are industry standard in productivity and cost-efficiency. The skill required in creating and launching virtual machine instances provides the foundation to understand and implement Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
