In this walk-through, we'll be creating a very minimal web server fleet that will be able to serve up HTML from a shared EFS volume. Of course, with static HTML using an S3 bucket would be far simpler and cheaper. However, this could map over to cases where we have dynamic HTML or some other use cases. The intent here is just to build some skills for setting up a Spot Fleet, which can be transposed to many other use cases.

Some may find this walk-through challenging, especially if you don't have much exposure to some of these services. This exercise assumes some knowledge in areas that are a little beyond the scope of this course. If you like, you can sit this one out.

Here's a typical architecture that might use the components we're building. For simplicity’s sake, we're not going to use an Application Load Balancer, but rather just hit the Spot Instance directly.
