AWS: What is AWS IAM Role and how it works ?

When we setup the new projects/functional groups In traditional infra we used to follow a heirarchy of roles as per the organization. When the IT systems access is required the sysadmin/infra team used to follow the similar setup.

When we come to AWS Cloud setup, we need to follow the similar setup, which is called Identity Access Management [IAM].

The following video has the detailed discussion on IAM usage and its function.

I hope you have seen my AWS Coaching specimen on the URL: https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/

Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of it on the candidate what he/she has ?

In my coaching I concentrate to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience by the participant rather than pushing the course to them. Verify the videos.

Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview.
Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners.
