Pro PowerShell for Amazon Web Services solves everyday problems easily and powerfully using PowerShell, the scripting language of choice for Microsoft administrators.
Pro PowerShell for Amazon Web Services is written specifically for Windows professionals who already know PowerShell and want to learn to host Windows workloads in the Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) cloud service. The cloud offers information technology workers significant cost savings and agility unimaginable even just a few years ago. Tasks that traditionally took weeks of work, costing thousands of dollars, can be completed in minutes for fractions of a penny. However, Windows professionals find themselves under pressure to move workloads to the cloud, but they also find that all of the existing documentation is written based on open source languages they often are not familiar with.
This book is a resource for using Microsoft's powerful scripting technology, PowerShell, to create, host, manage, and administer workloads using a service widely recognized as the industry leader in Cloud computing. Inside, find scripts to create and manage virtual machines, provision storage, configure networks with agility, and more--all using your preferred Windows scripting language.
