Introduction to EC2 Storage-
Amazon EC2 provides you with flexible, cost-effective, and easy-to-use data storage options for your instances. EC2 basically provides two types of block-level storage. Instances can either be launched with Elastic block storage volume (EBS volume) or Instance store-backed volumes as to their root volumes. Each option has a unique combination of performance and durability. But Aws recommends using EBS storage-backed AMIS as they get launched faster and provide persistent storage.Continue reading “EC2 STORE OVERVIEW- Difference B/W AWS EBS And Instance Store”
What is Patching?
A patch is a set of updates to a server or its supporting data designed to update, fix and improve, including fixing security vulnerabilities and other bugs. They may be applied to program files on a storage device or in computer memory. Patches may be permanent or temporary.
In a brief overview, you need to perform the following tasks for patch management:
1. Create a patch catalog.
2. Analyze the target to determine the patches that need to deploy.
3. Deploy the required patches to targets requiring remediation.
4. Analyze the targets again to ensure each server has the correct patch.
