Virtual Private Cloud Overview

Get introduced to the AWS VPC.

Virtual private cloud

A virtual private cloud or a VPC is a logically isolated section of the AWS cloud where you can launch your own resources. Within a VPC, you can create your own networks using your own IP ranges. A VPC sits within a region, as you can see in the diagram below. This region could be one of the 23 locations around the world. You can create a VPC within that region, and then, you can create subnets within that region. These subnets, which can be public or private, sit within availability zones. You then launch your resources into your subnets that are within your VPC.
