AWS info

Virtual Servers
● EC2- the classic, the original. Virtual servers on shared
hardware similar to VMWare. General purpose computing.○Associated services: Auto Scaling Groups, Elastic Load Balancers
● Container services:○ECS - Elastic Container Service
● EKS - Elastic Kubernetes Service
● Fargate - Serverless Containers
● Lightsail - actually EC2's but simple as heck

Code As A Service
● Lambda - executes individual functions (in a variety of
programming languages) on an ad-hoc on-demand basis and
you pay by the millisecond of elapsed compute time○Go, Rust, Java, .NET, Python, Node, Ruby, or custom runtimes
● The glue that holds AWS together○Dozens of other services have “hooks” such that “when XYZ event occurs, run this Lambda”
● Little code snippets can augment your S3 buckets, Cognito user pools, SQS queues, and so many

Bundling Services That Deploy Applications
With Compute Under The Hood
● Elastic Beanstalk - upload application packages and it
provisions Elastic Load Balanced, Auto Scaled EC2 groups to
serve them
● App Runner - similar to Elastic Beanstalk, but simpler
● OpsWorks - a puppet/chef approach
● Some CodeStar templates

Developer Tools
● Cloud9 - A web-based IDE similar to Visual Studio Code, hosted on EC2s
● CodeCommit - Distributed source version control, analogous to
● CodeBuild - Automated builds when commits arrive in CodeCommit
● CodeArtifact - Saved generated assets when Codebuilds complete
● CodeDeploy - Automated deploys when CodeArtifacts are available
● CodePipeline - Marries a CodeCommit, CodeBuild, CodeArtifact, and
CodeDeploy together into one seamless pipeline that creates an entire CI/CD
system analogous to Circle, Travis, Jenkins
● CodeStar - Marries all six of the above into an all-in-one factory where you edit
the source code in the browser in Cloud9 and it deploys as you go
Inter-Service Messaging ●SNS - push-style notifications that connect any number of Message Producers into a Topic that are pushed to
● SQS - pull-style notifications that connect any number of
Message Producers into a Queue that is then polled by
consuming processes for the front N items○Includes Visibility Timeout and Long Polling
● SES - transactional email service

Identity Management
● IAM - Identities internal to your AWS account○Users
● Groups
● Roles (both machines and people)
● Policies
● Deny-first except in case of role assumption, use principle of least privilege
● Cognito○Identity management for Applications, providing secure username and password management,
single-sign-on, social sign-ons. Analogous to Auth0 or Okta

● VPC - a Virtual Private Cloud. A private CIDR (IP address range) (e.g. 10.10.*.*)
that you set aside for your devices to span, within which network traffic
belongs to you.
● Every account has a VPC by default, even if you don’t remember
configuring one!
● Subnets - specific subsets of VPCs that live inside a single availability zone
● Network ACLs - Access Control Lists for the traffic inside VPCs
● Route Tables - Directs traffic to specified IP ranges to specific network
hardware such as Internet Gateways and NAT Gateways
● Internet Gateway - Enables two-way traffic in and out of a VPC with public IPs
● NAT Gateway - Enables one-way traffic out of a VPC without exposing the
devices whose traffic is being routed through it
Networking, Continued
● Cloudfront - Global CDN similar to Cloudflare. Provides
“edge locations” in most major metro areas where content is
cached to be closer to client requests. Can do lots of cool
things with Lambdas.
● Route 53 - DNS service. Can register and buy domains as well
as administer their nameserving. Similar to GoDaddy.
● S3 - Simple Storage Service. Technically a key/value store, but
where the values are typically files (can be any data). Puts
“objects” in “buckets”. Can be connected to Lambdas to do
cool things. Several storage tiers available.○Standard, Infrequent Access, Glacier, Intelligent Tiering...
● Snowball - hardware for transferring up to 80 TB of data in
one chunk from your location to an S3 bucket, through
physical drives
● Snowmobile - armored truck of snowballs for moving
petabytes of data to the cloud

Reset root pass in ESXi 5.5

    In this post i will show how to reset root password in ESXi 5.5. For this first we need any bootable linux distributor. In my example i used Ubuntu 16.04.     Boot from Ubuntu disk. Select try Ubuntu, wait for loading. After full loading open Terminal. Type fdisk -l for list all partitions hypervisor/system image is located on the first 250 MB partition (/dev/sda5) which contains the state.tgz file. Mount /dev/sda5 to /mnt sudo -s mount /dev/sda5 /mnt. Go to the /mnt cd /mnt . Copy state.tgz to /tmp folder cp state.tgz /tmp , cd /tmp. Unarchive state.tgz tar xzf state.tgz then   tar xzf local.tgz Go to the /etc directory in /tmp folder  cd etc/ . For deleting resetting password open shadow file with nano shadow  delete the password hash of ESXi root account. Close nano editor. Readd etc/ folder to local.tgz : tar czf local.tgz etc after it readd local.tgz to state.tgz: tar czf state.tgz local.tgz . Copy state.tgz mnt/ folder: cp state.tgz /mnt/ . umount /mnt  .

Install Cisco AnyConnect on Ubuntu

Hi   In this post i will show how to  install Cisco AnyConnect on Ubuntu 19.10.
