Guys A NOTE for you:

Folks,
How to Join in my Facebook groups to learn Cloud cum DevOps Concepts ?
For any Trainings many people conduct demos by catching the IT Professionals through their sales people. That demo denotes the trainer has the technical capabilities to handle the course for the attendees. In my coaching also I have followed the similar concept. But I don’t give demos by spending time, as I work as alone. In my case I have created the groups in Facebook: a) DevOps Practices Group, b) Cloud Practices Group c) Free Learning Agile/DevOps/AWS/AZ for freshers and IT Professionals. With few of the web pages by IT topic.

One can learn and assess them by joining. For more details you can watch this video. To join in them, you need to connect with me on FB and Linkedin and send a message. Then only you will be approved. This is a verification process to avoid fake ids.

AWS: POC-How to Build WordPress web site in AWS Cloud/Network ?


Most of the Blogs on websites are operated by WordPress[WP] software which is developed in PHP. Even my site [vskumar.blog] is from this software. To setup the WP, there are tier based architecture/setup required. For PHP related software we can have a 2-tier architecture setup.

For detailed analysis and the required AWS components for setting up W, below blog you can visit/follow blog:
https://vskumar.blog/2018/12/31/2-aws-wordpresswp-infrastructure-creation-using-a-free-tier-account/

In this demo video the WP site building project was discussed with different design steps towards AWS components and it was demonstrated well by one of our [experienced IT Professional] students well.


These are weekly assignments they get and they need to prove by themselves with a demo in a team; like live environment how it happens in a typical project team. By attending this activity delivery on weekly basis, one will not get any fear/scareness on doing the live infra tasks. They will be habituated with the project activities when they join in real job. And they will be productive resources from day one onwards. These are the major benefits from my course.

AWS: POC-How to do VPC Peering with 2 VPCs ?

When we have two networks in traditional methods, we used to do internal networking within the premises. And used those servers for Software APIs. Also the Sysadmin/DBAs/Network Admin role people used to manage them well. But in Cloud how to implement this kind of setup ?

In this POC project, it is well proven how we can create such kind of environment by using 2 VPCs and their peering with deeper analysis and the design steps of different services. And how the private subnet related Linux and Windows EC2s can be accessed by using NAT and Jump Servers?. And how to operate another VPC EC2 from one VPC EC2 ? Just watch this design steps analysis video from the below link:

AWS: Do you think, User IDs of IAM and EC2 are the same ?

When we talk about user ids in AWS or any Cloud some [Non-AWS Practiced] people feel user ids of IAM and EC2s are the same. But not!

  1. IAM user ids are made to access particular services of AWS Platform through some of the groups Privileges. These Groups are embeded with AWS policies to have access on the services.
  2. Where as EC2 is a Virtual Machine [can be either Linux OS or Windows server]. It needs the users to access. Like your physical machines have the used ids, the VM also has them.

NOTE:

Let us also be aware: Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market on AWS, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of IAC. They give a Console and ask you to setup a specific Infra setup in AWS.

In my coaching I focus on the candidates to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience rather than pushing the course with screen operations only to complete. Through my posted videos you can watch this USP.

AWS: What is CloudFormation ?

This video has the demo on Cloudformation with IAC to create a simple EC2.

https://business.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/2328450437268264/

Please note; every Cloud/DevOps/Test Engineer need to drive the infra setup tasks through IAC scripts only, when they are advanced in infra setup understanding. For every infra setup tasks they should be able to step down to develop these IAC scripts by using different tools. In AWS, we can use CF, Terraform and Ansible very easily for the medium level config scripts building.

For a jumpstart of learning process, I have started building some videos on understanding the Infra scripts process through CF Templates with POCs/demos. Following link has these videos to watch and do self practice with CF.

Please follow my videos : https://business.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/

Once you are perfect you can choose any of the Infra CM Tools to write scripts and run for automated infra setup.

The samples are made with the below infra setup scenarios:

In this POC exercise, we are using the Readily available template from the CloudFormation[CF] stacks with detailed lab steps in the below attached Video. There are two categories of WP infra building CF Templates mentioned in the CF stacks. In this example initially, I have taken the simple setup without Load balancer and Autoscale setup. The specifications/guidelines are given clearly to follow through video.

1. Cloud Defects:How the Cloud Professionals can Create the costly defects and the reasons ?

With reference to the booming Cloud Market [refer to some of my videos/blogs] and the Conversions to Cloud by different business organizations; Globally millions of IT professionals were mandated to learn the Cloud technologies to sustain their jobs in IT.

When we talk about these converted IT Professionals, they were forced to move into Cloud due to the sustainability of their job.

At the same time their employers are also enforced by their management to accelerate the cost savings for IT infra.

So how they do the planning for Cloud ?

On top there can be a CTO/CIO plans it to convert into Cloud. And they have the complete knowledge of the infrastructure with reference to their technology being used for business systems.

There will be Cloud Architects, they are responsible to create the Cloud implementation design.

Then the plan and the design is released to the Cloud engineers by allocating the tasks.

In between due to lack of [turn around] time, the Cloud engineers are pressured to create the environments. Here everybody can find one point, the management did not plan the knowledge transfer perfectly to the low level people. Then they can create many costly defects as per their knowledge and experience. So there is no ‘uniformity was followed’ in this case. It need not be a cost effective solution the Cloud Architects or Cloud Engineers have done. And there was no review also done. Once the monthly Cloud bill is arrived they will realize on it. Then they can realize the costly burning/bill happened by comparing to their planned cost saving on Infra. So this way they are enforced to track the resources who created these costly defects.

The following picture has got this kind of analysis. And what are the basic reasons the Architects and Engineers are not able to understand the domain conversion scenarios, when the management plans and release it for implementation.

Here we need to remember, every IT Professional need to realize that one fine day the current size of the resources will not be there in any project due to Cloud and the automation implementation is happening.

So the self matured professional need to realize where they are lacking and step down to learn those from experts, on war footing basis to prove and safeguard their jobs in IT.

If you want to learn the details, I have discussed in the below video with the relevant coaching on AWS-SAA course also.

AWS: Usage of CloudFormation Templates for IAC

Through this blog I would like to demonstrate on CloudFormation [CF] templates usage with the IAC.

I have observed in Cloud and DevOps teams, many of them are non-programming background. But when the Infra setup requirement comes into their task following questions will arise:

  1. How can they write the JSON/YAML/Go programming/script coding ?
  2. How can they understand the Cloud services and the domain setup knowledge ?
  3. What are the sequence of steps they need to follow, if they are being asked to setup the environments?
  4. How the VPCs need to be built ?
  5. How the Load Balancers need to be setup ?
  6. How the autoscaling and load balancing can be done in different locations to balance the traffic and maintain the infra setup consistency with low latency ?
  7. What are steps need to be followed to learn on the above process/procedures ?

AWS has given some of the infra setup the CloudFormation templates for us to try and test them. And later on to understand the Script/code of JSON/YAML to implement with any CM Tools.

Please note; every Cloud/DevOps/Test Engineer need to drive the infra setup tasks through IAC scripts only. For every infra setup tasks they should be able to step down to develop these IAC scripts by using different tools. In AWS, we can use CF, Terraform and Ansible very easily for the medium level config scripts building.

For a jumpstart of learning process, I have started building some videos on understanding the Infra scripts process through CF Templates with POCs/demos. Following links have these videos to watch and do self practice with CF.
