What is Cloudlab? Cloudlab is a cloud-based AWS console environment lab that Simplilearn offers along with the course to ensure a hassle-free execution of the hands-on project work you’ll complete in the AWS Solution Architect Associate course. With CloudLab, you need not register for the AWS console. Instead, you’ll be able to access a preconfigured environment—on Cloudlab—via your browser. This simulates the AWS console in use today. You’ll have access to CloudLab from the Simplilearn LMS (Learning Management System) for the duration of the course. What projects will I complete as part of the course? Project 1 Create a custom VPC with public and private subnets on two availability zones and launch instances into each subnet Project 2 Launch two web servers and configure a load balancer and auto-scaling Project 3 Configure RD Gateway on a VPC with a public and private subnet
