VPC

Start by creating a well designed Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud).

Amazon VPC lets you provision a logically isolated section of the AWS Cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways. You can use both IPv4 and IPv6 in your VPC for secure and easy access to resources and applications.

Benefits of VPC

  • Security - Amazon VPC provides advanced security features, such as security groups and network access control lists, to enable inbound and outbound filtering at the instance and subnet level
  • Simplicity - VPC wizard allows you to create Amazon VPC quickly
  • Customizability - Control your virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways
