As your application grows, you need to design for scalability and redundancy. Load balancing—splitting traffic among many servers—is key. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has tools for load balancing across multiple regions, so that users can experience the fastest response times with minimal downtime. This course explains how to set up multi-region load balancing with Amazon Route 53. Learn how to replicate data across multiple data centers using DynamoDB and set up continuous deployment across multiple regions with ECS and CodePipeline. Then discover how to use Route 53 to load balance between multiple regions, with policies for location-based routing and forwarding traffic after regional failure. By the end of the course, you’ll have the tools and skills to deploy your app to the entire world.

Topics include:

  • Creating DynamoDB global tables
  • Inserting records into DynamoDB tables
  • Creating ECS clusters
  • Pushing Docker images to ECR with CodeBuild
  • Deploying Docker images from ECR to ECS
  • Single-region load balancing with ALB
  • Deploying across multiple regions
  • Load balancing with DNS
  • Location-based routing with Route53
  • Testing cross-region failover
