This Quick Start deploys Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) on the AWS Cloud. AD DS and Domain Name Server (DNS) are core Windows services that provide the foundation for many Microsoft-based solutions for the enterprise, including Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange, and .NET Framework applications.
The Quick Start supports three scenarios: - Deploying a new AWS Cloud-based AD DS environment that you manage yourself - Extending your existing on-premises AD DS to the AWS Cloud - Deploying AD DS with AWS Directory Service
For each scenario, you also have the option to create a new Amazon VPC or use your existing Amazon VPC infrastructure. This documentation is offered for free here as a Kindle book, or you can read it online or in PDF format at https://aws.amazon.com/quickstart/.
Learn Amazon Web Services in a Month of Lunches guides you through the process of building a robust and secure web application using the core AWS services you really need to know. You'll be amazed by how much you can accomplish with AWS!
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
About the Technology
Cloud computing has transformed the way we build and deliver software. With the Amazon Web Services cloud platform, you can trade expensive glass room hardware and custom infrastructure for virtual servers and easy-to-configure storage, security, and networking services. Better, because you don't own the hardware, you only pay for the computing power you need! Just learn a few key ideas and techniques and you can have applications up and running in AWS in minutes.
About the Book
