Amazon Web Services in Action
Newer edition available! Amazon Web Services in Action, Second Edition is now available.
Andreas and I, have written a book about Amazon Web Services (AWS) called Amazon Web Services in Action. Our book focuses on essential AWS services including virtual servers (EC2), networking (VPC), SQL databases (RDS), NoSQL databases (DynamoDB), object storage (S3), block storage (EBS) and much more. The discussion of best practices regarding security, high availability and scalability are part of our book as well.
Amazon Web Services in Action focuses on Infrastructure as Code with the help of an AWS service called AWS CloudFormation. It is possible to spin up complex infrastructures on AWS within minutes in a highly automated way.
Engineers with a background in developing software or system administration are the primary audience of our book. Basic knowledge of computing and networking is the only prerequisite for readers.
Ordering Amazon Web Services in Action is possible from Manning, Amazon.com or the bookstore of your choice. Our book is available as printed book or ebook in all common e-book formats. If you buy the printed book, the e-book is included.
