In this post you will learn how to create an RDS database and then successfully implement read replicas and backups for this database. You will learn how to access this database, make sure it is working properly, and learn how to make sure that your RDS instance can switch to a read replica if it fails. Upon completion of this lab, you will feel comfortable creating and protecting relational databases with backup solutions.
Creating and working with an instance of EC2

Configuring an application load balancer with the auto-scaling group and routing 53 in AWS
In this hands-on exercise, you’ll set up an application load balancer with the auto-scaling group and route 53 to make our website accessible to all our users. First, you create and configure the application load balancer. You will then create and configure auto-scaling and see how it works in various scenarios. Finally, you set up an alias record for Route 53 CNAME, which will be an alias for our Application Load Balancer to serve our website to all users.
