    Project 1: Create a WordPress blog with defined specifications using AWS CloudFormation, AMI, and AWS Auto Scaling.
     
    Scenario: Set up a WordPress blog for a company meeting defined specifications. During set business hours, the company’s blogging team wants to use their own development copy of the WordPress instance while making sure changes don’t impact the live copy.
     
    Project goals: Use CloudFormation to create an EC2 instance to run WordPress with the following specifications:

    • Instance Type: T2.micro
    • Create a new AMI of the WordPress instance
    • Configure Auto Scaling to launch a new WordPress instance

    Project 2:  Create a Linux instance for testing new applications using EC2.
     
    Scenario: A development team needs you to create a small Linux instance to test a new application. Create the EC2 instance using defined specifications for this project in the cloud architect certification in Charlotte. A few days later, the development team wants to move the instance into production, so you need to change the specifications of the instance.
     
    Project goals: 
    Create an EC2 instance with the following specifications:

    • AMI: Amazon Linux
    • Instance Type: T2.nano
    • Volume Type: 8GB Magnetic

    Reconfigure the instance to achieve the following specifications:

    • Instance Type: Scale to a T2.small
    • Volume Type: Increase to 12GB General Purpose SSD
    • Verify whether the root volume on the EC2 instance is displaying the correct size

    Project 3: Distribute content using S3, CloudFront, Geo restriction and logging
     
    Scenario: Your company wants to distribute content on a website to their global offices. However, due to legal restrictions, you cannot distribute the content in France and Australia. You must find a way to prevent these offices from accessing the data. The content does not change very often, but some files are very large and you must find a way to minimize end-user latency. The last requirement is that the audit department wants to track those who access the website.
     
    Project goals:

    • Set up a static website using Amazon S3
    • Create a bucket and enable static website hosting
    • Enable logging
    • Set up a CloudFront distribution for the static website with Access Logs enabled
    • Set up Geo Restrictions to prevent users in France and Australia from accessing the data
    • Verify that logging is working

    Project 4: Hosting web applications and performance monitoring
     
    Scenario: The OsCrop Corporation wants to build a highly available web application. It lacks the team to manage the environment, so it is exploring using Azure PaaS (Web Apps) for its web hosting. The user pattern for this application is sporadic; it can expect a spike in traffic at any moment. OsCrop’s management is looking to use Azure Autoscaling capabilities.
     
    OsCrop’s management also is looking to have a proper monitoring mechanism to monitor application performance. To achieve this, the team has been tasked to integrate application insights.
     
    Project goals:

    • Create Azure Web Apps in U.S. East regions
    • Enable Autoscaling for web apps
    • Deploy a sample application from Visual Studio with application insights enabled
    • Set up monitoring on Azure Application Insights

    Project 5: Provision Dev Environment & Secure Azure Web Applications
     
    Scenario: The OsCrop Corporation’s management wants to use Azure as their development platform for the new.Net MVC application they are building. They have identified Visual Studio 2017 as their development framework. They are looking to test Azure virtual machines to host the development editor. You need to validate the Community edition of Visual Studio 2017 on Azure VM. As OsCrop’s development team is in the eastern U.S., they are considering using the region for this deployment.
     
    The operations team at OsCrop is looking to offload the application's authentication to Azure AD. Any user who is part of an Active directory should be allowed to log in to the application. They want you to validate this using a sample MVC application in this project for the cloud architect certification in Charlotte.
     
    Project goals:

    • Create a virtual network and resource container
    • Create the development virtual machine
    • Configure the virtual machine for development
    • Create Azure AD for application authentication

    Project 6:  Create two Amazon S3 Buckets
     
    Scenario: Create two Amazon S3 Buckets in the Mumbai region. The bucket names will be “testoct28” and “testoct28log.” After creating both buckets, upload any sample file to the bucket “testoct28,” then enable logging in for the bucket “testoct28.” Ensure that the log is saved in the bucket name “testoct28log” and also enable the versioning in the bucket “testoct28.” Then, enable transfer acceleration in the bucket “testoct28.”
     
    Project goals:

    • Create an Amazon S3 Bucket Name "testoct28" in Mumbai Region
    • Create an Amazon S3 Bucket Name "testoct28log" in Mumbai Region
    • Upload sample file to testoct28 bucket
    • Enable logging in for bucket "testoct28"
    • The log should be saved in bucket "testoct28log"
