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.
