Course syllabus

DynamoDB Tables LabDuration: 8:32

Creating DynamoDB tables is a simple process, but it helps you understand the way in which a No-SQL database works. In this episode, you will see the process used to create such tables.

My SQL LabDuration: 13:26

MySQL is a very popular web database solution because it is an open source database that is compatible with the SQL language and relational database concepts. In this episode, you will see how to create a free tier MySQL database in the AWS cloud.

Configuration LabDuration: 12:58

After creating a database, you may want to change some properties or settings. This episode provides an overview of the configuration options for your AWS RDS databases.

Backups LabDuration: 4:13

Getting your data into a database is just a portion of the important tasks related to databases. You must also backup your databases regularly. The good news is that AWS RDS does this for you and you can manually do it as well.

Restore LabDuration: 4:26

Database failure happens. How do you recover when a failure occurs? This episode shows you how to restore a database in a disaster scenario so you can get back up and running quickly.

Snapshot LabDuration: 7:49

How do you take a picture of your database at a point-in-time? The answer is with snapshots. Snapshots are the basic backup method used in AWS RDS. This episode demonstrates how they are used.

Monitoring LabDuration: 5:53

In this episode, you will explore the options for database monitoring so that you can plan for alerts and other automated capabilities that will assist the database managers in their processes.
