So far this is the most informational and encouraging Cloud computing class I have encountered! I only took two days to finish the whole class and registered the exam in 12 days. Thank you so much for the great work!!

Good mixture of nuts and bolts and encouragement. Would like a bit more differentiation on the different storage options. Questions including backups but course did not

There seem to be quite a few holes in the teaching, as well as some very badly written quiz questions.

Things that merit more explanation:

AWS CloudTrail - this logs API usage, but Gordon says it also logs keystrokes and commands run... typically, the keystrokes and commands would have taken place in an application that calls an API so I find it unusual that CloudTrail has access to this - it implies that CloudTrail has access to the upstream app.

EBS - Gordon says that this can be used to store an O/S or application and only the relevant blocks need to be updated for changes. Doesn't this create a dependency between the software and the file structure? The software would need to be broken down into component parts stored in discrete blocks.
