Project 1: Virtualization Assignment CMIT 495 6387
For this assignment, the Caduceus CTO, Eliza, has asked you to create a working proof of concept.
Step 1: Create an AWS Educate Account
CMIT 495 requires you to complete hands-on assignments in a virtual environment. We will be using Amazon Web Services (AWS) as our virtual environment. Amazon offers a free account for those that register. UMGC will automatically add you to an AWS Educate classroom. However, you still need to register (if you have not already done before) and activate the classroom.
Review the following documents to register, activate and enter your AWS Educate classroom. Be sure to read each document carefully before you proceed.
Download the template you will use to submit your project. (Virtualization Assignment Template.docx)
Step 3: Install and Configure an AWS EC2 Instance (Virtual Machine)
Using the newly created AWS free account, install and configure an Ubuntu Server virtual machine (VM) using the most recent version of the 64-bit operating system.
You will need to provide a detailed overview of the steps required to install the Ubuntu server operating system on the virtual machine, including screenshots of each step in the process in the Week 1 Assignment Template.
Review the following document that shows step by step on how to install and configure an AWS EC2 instance.
Step 4: Complete the Week 1 Project and Upload to the Assignment Folder
Answer the questions and embed the appropriate screenshots of your Ubuntu server installation. When providing a detailed overview of the steps required to install the Ubuntu server operating system on the virtual machine, make sure to include screenshots of each step in the process. Further details and instructions are included within the Week 1 Assignment Template.
When complete, export your file as a PDF and upload it to the LEO Assignments folder (e.g., Project 1 – Virtualization Assignment).
