EBS - SSD vs HDD On a given volume configuration, certain I/O characteristics drive the performance behavior for your EBS volumes. SSD-backed volumes, such as General Purpose SSD (gp2) and Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1), deliver consistent performance whether an I/O operation is random or sequential. HDD-backed volumes like Throughput Optimized HDD (st1) and Cold HDD (sc1) deliver optimal performance only when I/O operations are large and sequential. In the exam, always consider the difference between SSD and HDD as shown on the table below. This will allow you to easily eliminate specific EBS-types in the options which are not SSD [...]

Security Group vs NACL


Security Group vs NACL   Your VPC has a default security group with the following rules: Allow inbound traffic from instances assigned to the same security group. Allow all outbound IPv4 traffic and IPv6 traffic if you have allocated an IPv6 CIDR block. Your VPC has a default network ACL with the following rules: Allows all inbound and outbound IPv4 traffic and, if applicable, IPv6 traffic. Each network ACL also includes a non modifiable and non removable rule whose rule number is an asterisk. This rule ensures that if a packet doesn't match any of the other numbered rules, it's [...]

S3 Standard vs S3 Standard-IA vs S3 One Zone-IA


Amazon S3 Standard vs S3 Standard-IA vs S3 One Zone-IA   Additional Notes: Data stored in the S3 One Zone-IA storage class will be lost in the event of AZ destruction. S3 Standard-IA costs less than S3 Standard in terms of storage price, while still providing the same high durability, throughput, and low latency of S3 Standard. S3 One Zone-IA has 20% less cost than Standard-IA. S3 Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) will be deprecated soon. It is recommended to use multipart upload for objects larger than 100MB. *** AWS Certified Solutions Architect is consistently among the top paying IT certifications in the world, [...]

Amazon S3 vs Glacier


Amazon S3 vs Glacier Amazon S3 is a durable, secure, simple, and fast storage service, while Amazon S3 Glacier is used for archiving solutions. Use S3 if you need low latency or frequent access to your data. Use S3 Glacier for low storage cost, and you do not require millisecond access to your data. You have three retrieval options when it comes to Glacier, each varying in the cost and speed it retrieves an object for you. You retrieve data in milliseconds from S3. Both S3 and Glacier are designed for durability of 99.999999999% of objects across multiple Availability Zones. [...]

Amazon RDS vs DynamoDB


Amazon RDS vs DynamoDB   Additional notes: DynamoDB has built-in support for ACID transactions. DynamoDB uses filter expressions because it does not support complex queries. Multi-AZ deployments for the MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and PostgreSQL engines utilize synchronous physical replication. Multi-AZ deployments for the SQL Server engine use synchronous logical replication. An Oracle Database is limited to one database per instance. An SQL Server is limited to 30 databases per instance. Other RDS engines have no limits. *** AWS Certified Solutions Architect is consistently among the top paying IT certifications in the world, considering that Amazon Web Services is the leading cloud services [...]

AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)


AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) Distributes incoming application or network traffic across multiple targets, such as EC2 instances, containers (ECS), and IP addresses, in multiple Availability Zones. When you create a load balancer, you must specify one public subnet from at least two Availability Zones. You can specify only one public subnet per Availability Zone. General features Accepts incoming traffic from clients and routes requests to its registered targets. Monitors the health of its registered targets and routes traffic only to healthy targets. Enable deletion protection to prevent your load balancer from being deleted accidentally. Disabled by default. Deleting ELB [...]
