Quality speaks for itself...

Also, the related Java application, hosted on-premise, has been moved to an Amazon Lambda function.

Which of the following should you implement to connect AWS Lambda function to its RDS instance?

  • Use Lambda layers to connect to the internet and RDS separately

  • Configure lambda to connect to the public subnet that will give internet access and use Security Group to access RDS inside the private subnet

  • Use Environment variables to pass in the RDS connection string

  • Configure Lambda to connect to VPC with private subnet and Security Group needed to access RDS

  • What's your guess? Scroll below for the answer...

    Correct: 4.

    CORRECT OPTION

    Configure Lambda to connect to VPC with private subnet and Security Group needed to access RDS - You can configure a Lambda function to connect to private subnets in a virtual private cloud (VPC) in your account. Use Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to create a private network for resources such as databases, cache instances, or internal services. Connect your lambda function to the VPC to access private resources during execution. When you connect a function to a VPC, Lambda creates an elastic network interface for each combination of the security group and subnet in your function's VPC configuration. This is the right way of giving RDS access to Lambda.

    INCORRECT OPTIONS

    Use Lambda layers to connect to the internet and RDS separately - You can configure your Lambda function to pull in additional code and content in the form of layers. A layer is a ZIP archive that contains libraries, a custom runtime, or other dependencies. Layers will not help in configuring access to RDS instance and hence is an incorrect choice.

    Configure lambda to connect to the public subnet that will give internet access and use the Security Group to access RDS inside the private subnet - This is an incorrect statement. Connecting a Lambda function to a public subnet does not give it internet access or a public IP address. To grant internet access to your function, its associated VPC must have a NAT gateway (or NAT instance) in a public subnet.

    Use Environment variables to pass in the RDS connection string - You can use environment variables to store secrets securely and adjust your function's behavior without updating code. You can use environment variables to exchange data with RDS, but you will still need access to RDS, which is not possible with just environment variables.

    scenario based questions

    Scenario based questions help to think about the application of concepts learnt.

    Especially the last three sets with scenario based questions.

    Practice exams were helpful in passing the exam to understand scenario based questions.

    The practice questions help you to understand scenario based questions, how to eliminate obvious wrong options, and choose most reasonable option.

    There were too many scenario based questions(long questions) and long answers, around 5 to 8 multiple choice questions, very few basic questions.

    These scenario based questions are great.

    I had lots of scenario based questions on my Developer Associate exam and a lot of them were based on the above mentioned topics.

    more difficult

    so, this is useful for deep understanding to AWS and for more difficult grade certification.

    I took the exam today and I found that the questions were somewhat more difficult than in the exams I had practiced.

    The real test more difficult a must to have to pass the exam.

    The AWS exam is much more difficult but these give you an insight as to how the questions are presented.

    Just want to point out that the exam is more difficult, in a 'elastic' way, than the practice tests.

    go through

    With the practice exams in this course (which have almost the same level of difficulty as the real exam) I could get feedback on what I know and what I should go through again.

    If any one not confident even after stephane practice test and video tutorials can go through other practice tests offered by official AWS and Whizlabs.

    I suggest everyone to go through the reference links provided in the review page in the test papers and aws faqs.

    The worst thing is that real exam is far more difficult than these simulations, because the simulations only cover the knowledge Stephane taught in his developer course, and if you go through all the course and then you go into exam you will find only half of the questions you are 100% sure.
