Container Services

20th Sep

09:00 – 16:00


Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a highly scalable, fast, container management service that makes it easy to run, stop, and manage Docker containers on a cluster of Amazon EC2 instances.

Amazon EC2 Container Registry (Amazon ECR) is a fully-managed Docker container registry that makes it easy for developers to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images. Amazon ECR is integrated with Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS), simplifying your development to production workflow.



Level: Intermediate

Who should attend?

If you’re an Application Architects, DevOps or Linux Sys-Admin who is new to Container Services on AWS or simply want to learn more and have basic knowledge and experience with AWS.


Container Services: Part I | 9:00 – 12:00

  • Introduction to Amazon EC2 Container Service

This lab will cover the steps to create task definitions from Docker containers, deploy tasks to the cluster and update task definitions.

  • Working with Amazon EC2 Container Service

This lab will cover the steps to create Task Definitions from Docker containers, populate an ECS Cluster with Load Balanced EC2 Instances, deploy Tasks to the Cluster, make revisions, and scale up the Cluster.

Container Services: Part II | 13:00 – 16:00

  • Introduction to Amazon EC2 Container Registry

This lab will cover the steps to create an Amazon ECR repository, push an image to an Amazon ECR repository and deploy an application using images stored on Amazon ECR.

  • Running cost-efficient workloads with Distributed Containers clusters (Kubernetes, ECS, Docker Swarm & Mesos) with Spotinst

While it is easy to get started with containers, optimal use requires expertise, efforts, and mainly, time. the granular pricing structure is complex; optimal scheduling, security and high availability should be addressed. In this session, we will cover the fundamentals and principals, of running optimized distributed clusters across Kubernetes, Amazon Container Service, and Docker Swarm.

21th Sep

09:00 – 16:00


One of the benefits of cloud services is that you can operate at scale and still remain secure. It is similar to how you currently manage security, but now you have new ways of delivering security solutions that address new areas of concern. Cloud security does not change the approach on how to manage security from preventing to detective and corrective actions. but it does however give you the ability to perform these activities in a more agile manner.



Who should attend?

If you’re a Sys-admin, AWS security personnel or simply someone with basic understanding of security concepts.


Managing Your Security on AWS | 9:00 – 12:00

  • Introduction to AWS Key Management Service

This lab provides a basic understanding and hands-on experience of AWS Key Management Service. It will demonstrate the basic steps required to get started with Key Management Service, creating keys, assigning management and usage permissions for the keys, encrypting data and monitoring the access and usage of keys.

  • Introduction to AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)

This lab shows you how to manage access and permissions to your AWS services using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). Practice the steps to add users to groups, manage passwords, log in with IAM-created users, and see the effects of IAM policies on access to specific services.

Auditing Your Security on AWS | 13:00 – 16:00

  • Performing a Basic Audit of your AWS Environment

This lab leads you through the steps to perform basic audits of core AWS resources. You will use the AWS Management Console to understand how to audit the use of multiple AWS services, Amazon EC2, Amazon VPC, Amazon IAM, Amazon Security Groups, AWS CloudTrail and AWS CloudWatch. This lab will help you understand how you can extend your existing auditing objectives related to organizational Governance, Asset Configuration, Logical Access Controls, Operating Systems, Databases and Applications security configurations within AWS. The skills learned will help provide visibility; testability and automated audit evidence gather capabilities.

Serverless architectures allows you to build and run applications and services without having to manage infrastructure. Your application still runs on servers, but all the server management is done by AWS. You no longer have to provision, scale, and maintain servers to run your applications, databases, and storage systems.



Who should attend?

If you’re an Application Architects, DevOps or a Solution Architects with working experience with AWS and understanding of cloud architecture.


  • Introduction to Amazon API Gateway

In this lab, you will create a simple FAQ microservice. The microservice will return a JSON object containing a random question and answer pair using an API Gateway endpoint that invokes a Lambda function. Prerequisites: students should take the lab “Introduction to AWS Lambda” before taking this lab.

  • Server-less Architectures using Amazon S3 and Amazon SNS with AWS Lambda

In this lab you will build a chat bot for Slack, using a Lambda blueprint. Chat bots have the ability to interact with teams and users, respond to commands, and post notifications, giving all conversation participants visibility into team activities. You will build a bot that posts CloudWatch alarms to your Slack channel. Prerequisites: To successfully complete this lab, you should be familiar with AWS Lambda and Amazon CloudWatch through taking the introductory labs. You should have at a minimum taken the “Introduction to AWS Lambda” lab at You will need to have or create an account with the online service Slack to complete this lab– instructions are provided. Familiarity with Slack is helpful, though not required.

22th Sep

13:00- 15:00


NoSQL databases have become the first alternative to relational databases, with scalability, availability, and fault tolerance being key deciding factors. They go well beyond the more widely understood legacy, relational databases (such as Oracle, SQL Server and DB2 databases) in satisfying the needs of today’s modern business applications. A very flexible and schema-less data model, horizontal scalability, distributed architectures, and the use of languages and interfaces that are “not only” SQL typically characterize this technology.


  • Advanced

Who should attend?

If you’re a Devops , Software engineers, Architects or CTOs who has previous experience working with Elasticsearch


  • Running ELK and other statefulenvironments using HOT-EBS Technology with Spotinst

Running ELK environments can be very costly, especially when the amount of data keeps growing, and when the business is centered around the data stored in the ELK. In this session, we will demonstrate how to create an economical AND highly available Elastic Search cluster and other stateful environments using our latest features.
