Imagine you are building a massively multiplayer online game (MMO). In your game, thousands or more users may be playing at the same time, and your architecture must handle the load. As part of your application, you have an inventory system. Players can find, purchase, sell, and trade items, and you need to store this information in a database.
In this lab, you learn how to use Amazon Aurora Serverless to handle the inventory system in your application. You also learn how to provision and configure an Amazon Aurora Serverless database and the related infrastructure to build your inventory system as a web service.
In Module 1, you configure your environment and download the code that you use during the lab.
Time to Complete Module: 20 Minutes
In this module, you learned about the example application you build in this lab. You also set up an AWS account and configured an AWS Cloud9 instance.
You are now ready to start the lab. In the next module, you provision your Amazon Aurora Serverless database.
