Project 1: Virtualization Assignment

Project 1: Virtualization Assignment

For this assignment, the Caduceus CTO, Eliza, has asked you to create a working proof of concept.

Step 1: Set Up and Log Into Your AWS Academy 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 Academy Learner Lab. However, you still need to set up and log into your AWS Academy account to get started.

Review the following AWS Academy (Student Guide) to set up and log into your AWS Academy Account, then access and use your Learner Lab. Be sure to read the guide carefully before proceeding:

Note: The AWS Academy Learner Lab (Student Guide) provides students with instructions for using AWS Academy Learner Labs. The Learner Lab offers a lab environment suitable for student projects over a period designated by the department. 

Step 2: Download the Week 1 Project Template

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.
