Cloud management Practices: How to plan the Cloud Initiation ?

Folks,

I have done my EXIN Cloud professional certification in 2014. Soon after acquired the certification, I studied the Cloud needs and the costing, etc. Then I came up with a Consulting cum presales presentation video in my youtube channel: Shanthi Kumar V.

I do discuss with some of my course participants on those practices depends on their background. Mostly these practices need to be used by the 10+ years IT experienced folks, who configure themselves for Cloud Projects initiation with their project management and pre-sales practices.

In the below video I have done the same discussion in two sessions:

See my Youtube video also, which was made in 2014:

Cloud cum DevOps Coaching: How to Connect to save your future ROI ?
If you are a determined and self projected Cloud/DevOps Professional, you do not need to crawl among the peace meal trainings and watching tons of videos by wasting your time. But those can be useful for few hours of your project activities to complete. There is a lot to learn to deliver an activity in Cloud Infra and DevOps process related. Through coaching, you can attend upto the project role level end to end tasks coaching to mold you technically and professionally on the role. In most of the projects they are expecting the IAC to develop and give demos in review calls. On live nobody will be there to mentor you. You will be evaluated regularly on the performance. Many of the companies have made monthly evaluation/appraisals [hidden HR process] to sack the fake and NON-Performance IT profiles to save their project cost.

AWS VPC S3-End Point: Trouble shoot for defects also

AWS VPC S3-End Point: Trouble shoot for defects also

Folks,

User requirement: The development team needs the S3 Access in private Linux EC2s. They need a separate VPC with S3 End point setup. IAM role need to be given to the developers to access S3 files from EC2 through AWS CLI.

Doing the typical VPC-S3 End point is a normal way. But we tried a different way. We documented the Infra design steps. By following them, we breaked those design steps and demonstrated how the defects can be created at different levels.

So one can learn how the defects can be flown around, in this steps journey. So that the live issues can be understood easily.

Please note; one more thing. The demo participant is from NON-IT, She learnt a lot during this course with weekly 20+ hours dedication. And once the manual infra demo is given, in few days she will come up with IAC scripts demo for the same setup. During the coaching I filter NON-IT People also for their dedication/hard work and prove and learn attitude to utilize my coaching well. Definitely such people are very valid resources for IT organizations. As long as the management understand these people capability, they are not the competitors and no need of doing fake in profiles. There are so many NON-IT dedicated and honest people ready to convince on the interviews comparing to the proxy guys.

You can watch the demo from the below video:

Some more videos from the same participant can be seen below:
