Exasol Administration on AWS


About This Course

We discuss Exasol Cluster Database deployment on AWS here.

You should attend the course Exasol Administration Essentials before this course as it explains several administration topics that are not platform specific.

We cover the following topics:

  • Exasol Cluster Installation on AWS using Cloud Deployment Wizard
  • Customize your Exasol environment on AWS
  • Scale up & down your Ec2 instances
  • Scale out by adding cluster nodes
  • Increase storage capacity on AWS
  • Fail Safety on AWS
  • Backup & Restore on AWS

The course contains videos, quizzes and lots of hands-on exercises. Within the hands-on exercises, you will install a 2+1 Cluster on AWS. AWS credentials are not provided by Exasol. Either your company provides them to you or you need to create your own account on AWS for this course. Be aware that Amazon requires credit card details for that purpose. The resources consumed by this course are low and will probably not extend 10 Euro per day. One day duration is usually enough to do all labs.
