Deploy Infrastructure as Code (IAC)

via Udacity


With the advent of cloud computing, along came several tools that enabled us to deploy the underlying infrastructure components that provide security and services to our servers by writing scripts. In this course, you’ll learn how to deploy this infrastructure using CloudFormation, AWS’ tool for Infrastructure as Code. You will use CloudFormation to deploy Infrastructure patterns that are used in the industry broadly and can be readily used to deploy any cloud application. Like in the real world, you will begin with initial business requirements that you will turn into Cloud Architecture Diagrams. Then you will deploy this architecture using CloudFormation.


  • Getting Started with CloudFormation
    • Set up the necessary tools to get started with AWS CloudFormation and deploy your first server.
  • Infrastructure Diagrams
    • Convert business requirements into infrastructure diagrams and understand the principles behind design choices.
  • Networking Infrastructure
    • Learn about various networking components that can be used in a VPC.
  • Servers and Security Groups
    • Implement security groups and understand the concept of least-privilege as it applies to network traffic
  • Storage and Databases
    • Deploy relational database and encryption service for your application.
  • Deploy a high-availability web app using CloudFormation
    • In this project, you’ll deploy web servers for a highly available web app using CloudFormation.
