Devops Essentials - Introduction To AWS, GCP, Azure

Introduction to AWS, GCP, and Azure:

AWS, GCP, and Azure are three of the leading cloud service providers in the market. They offer a wide range of cloud computing services that allow businesses and individuals to access and use computing resources over the internet. These services include computing power, storage, databases, machine learning, analytics, and more. Let's briefly introduce each of these cloud platforms:


Amazon Web Services (AWS):

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a comprehensive and widely adopted cloud platform offered by Amazon. Launched in 2006, AWS provides a vast array of cloud services that cater to various needs, from startups to large enterprises. Some of the key services offered by AWS include:

  • Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2): Provides scalable virtual servers in the cloud.
  • Simple Storage Service (S3): Offers scalable object storage for data and backups.
  • Relational Database Service (RDS): Manages relational databases in the cloud.
  • Lambda: Allows serverless computing by running code in response to events.
  • Amazon DynamoDB: Fully managed NoSQL database service.
  • Amazon Sagemaker: Enables machine learning model development and deployment.
  • Amazon CloudFront: Content delivery network (CDN) for faster content delivery.


Google Cloud Platform (GCP):

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is Google's cloud computing offering, launched in 2011. It provides a suite of cloud services and products, leveraging Google's expertise in data analytics and machine learning. Some of the key services offered by GCP include:

  • Compute Engine: Provides virtual machines for scalable computing.
  • Cloud Storage: Offers object storage similar to AWS S3.
  • Cloud SQL: Fully managed relational database service.
  • BigQuery: A serverless, highly scalable data warehouse for analytics.
  • Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE): Managed Kubernetes service for container orchestration.
  • Cloud AI Platform: Supports machine learning model training and deployment.


Microsoft Azure:

Microsoft Azure is the cloud computing platform provided by Microsoft. It was launched in 2010 and has grown rapidly to compete with AWS and GCP. Azure offers a wide range of services and integrates seamlessly with Microsoft products. Some key services provided by Azure include:

  • Virtual Machines: Scalable computing resources with Windows or Linux OS.
  • Blob Storage: Object storage similar to AWS S3 and GCP Cloud Storage.
  • Azure SQL Database: Fully managed relational database service.
  • Azure Machine Learning: Supports building and deploying machine learning models.
  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS): Managed Kubernetes container orchestration.
  • Azure Functions: Enables serverless computing with event-driven code execution.

Choosing the right cloud service provider depends on specific requirements, existing technology stack, and individual preferences. All three platforms offer reliable, scalable, and cost-effective cloud solutions to meet various business needs, making them essential components of the DevOps ecosystem.

Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server

  Experiment No. 5 Title: Applying CI/CD Principles to Web Development Using Jenkins, Git, and Local HTTP Server  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to set up a CI/CD pipeline for a web development project using Jenkins, Git, and webhooks, without the need for a Jenkinsfile. You will learn how to automatically build and deploy a web application to a local HTTP server whenever changes are pushed to the Git repository, using Jenkins' "Execute Shell" build step. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a critical practice in modern software development, allowing teams to automate the building, testing, and deployment of applications. This process ensures that software updates are consistently and reliably delivered to end-users, leading to improved development efficiency and product quality. In this context, this introduction sets the stage for an exploration of how to apply CI/CD principles specifically to web development using J

Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker

  Experiment No. 6 Title: Exploring Containerization and Application Deployment with Docker  Objective: The objective of this experiment is to provide hands-on experience with Docker containerization and application deployment by deploying an Apache web server in a Docker container. By the end of this experiment, you will understand the basics of Docker, how to create Docker containers, and how to deploy a simple web server application. Introduction Containerization is a technology that has revolutionised the way applications are developed, deployed, and managed in the modern IT landscape. It provides a standardised and efficient way to package, distribute, and run software applications and their dependencies in isolated environments called containers. Containerization technology has gained immense popularity, with Docker being one of the most well-known containerization platforms. This introduction explores the fundamental concepts of containerization, its benefits, and how it differs

  Experiment No. 10 Title: Create the GitHub Account to demonstrate CI/CD pipeline using Cloud Platform. Objective: The objective of this experiment is to help you create a GitHub account and set up a basic CI/CD pipeline on GCP. You will learn how to connect your GitHub repository to GCP, configure CI/CD using Cloud Build, and automatically deploy web pages to an Apache web server when code is pushed to your repository. Introduction: Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines are essential for automating the deployment of web applications. In this experiment, we will guide you through creating a GitHub account and setting up a basic CI/CD pipeline using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to copy web pages for an Apache HTTP web application. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is a crucial practice in modern software development. It involves automating the processes of code integration, testing, and deployment to ensure that software changes are co
