Unlock the true potential of your business with AWS Cloud Compute, the lifeblood of your cloud-based operations. AWS Compute services, such as EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), provide flexible and scalable virtual servers -or VMs- in the cloud that cater to your diverse workload requirements, be it occasional bursting or persistent workloads. These VMs ensure robust performance, cost-effectiveness, and maximum uptime. Beyond this, AWS takes data management to the next level with its popular Database Services. Offering both relational and non-relational database services, AWS ensures efficient and secure data storage. Services like RDS (Relational Database Service) simplify setting up, operating, and scaling relational databases in the cloud. Whether it's launching an application, running a large-scale project, or managing databases, AWS Cloud Compute has your back with its spectrum of world-class compute and database services.

WEBVTT >> (upbeat music) - Well, I am super excited because I have to admit, this is one of my favorite modules of content in the entire ACI Learning Library. I am so passionate about AWS compute and database services. My name is Anthony Sequera, and I actually won't be hosting in this episode. It's my dear friend Lauren Deal that you'll see hosting, but someone that you will see in this episode as well is Jill West. Jill, tell us a bit about yourself. - >> Yes, so my name is Jill West. I am an instructor at a technical college in Northwest Georgia. I'm also an author for Cengage. Normally I write on the CompTIA certification exams. You can see here my CompTIA Cloud Plus book that's been out for a couple of years now. We're about ready to update this again. I've also got four kids at home, so I get a lot of opportunity to work with teaching people who are not necessarily in tech what the cloud is all about, have a lot of fun with it. - >> So compute and database services are obviously so critical. I was curious, Jill, do you have kind of a favorite area in the world of compute when it comes to AWS? - >> You know, I think compute is a great place just to kind of give us a history lesson of how the cloud became a thing. So we have virtual machines that we're used to doing in the on-prem environment. Then we start to make a shift into containers, and then a shift into serverless compute. So we get to see the progression of this technology, even just looking at the different kinds of compute in AWS. I really like talking about those serverless functions because it just kind of blows people's minds what we can do with it. - I love it. >> And I know one of the things that you'll be doing is you'll be keeping a close eye on the official AWS objectives as we move throughout these topics, right? - >> Yeah, so this particular series is meant to address that cloud practitioner exam. So we've used the objectives to help define what we're going to cover and make sure that we're not just kind of going off on rabbit trails with too much stuff. You don't necessarily need to plan on taking that exam to take this course. It's intended to help you get the information you need to be what the industry considers to be informed on these particular topics. So this one will be touching on those compute services and those database services. - >> Well, I am super excited as I indicated, if you're like me and you can't wait to get great foundational education on such critical services like EC2 and Lambda and RDS and all these wonderful compute and database services in AWS, you're in the right place. Let's get started by clicking on that next video.
